Clearing his stance, Sushant has released an official statement.
Speaking about the rumor that "Befikre
" was earlier offered to him, Sushant cleared the air by stating, "Let me clear it once and for all. I was never offered "Befikre". But had I been offered, I wouldn't have done it. I know it's easier to decide after the results are out but I have a reason. If the same production house is offering me a niche film like Detective Byomkesh Bakshy (2015), I would do it because Dibakar Banerjee (director) has a different interpretation of the old classic; and I would do a Paani where Shekhar Kapur (film-maker) will be raising a very important and immediate issue"
Elaborating further as to what according to him was wrong with the film, he said, "If "Befikre" was representing the new-age youth of India and romance as what it was claiming, it would have been great irrespective of the box-office numbers. But unfortunately, it didn't do that and hence I would not be interested. I am not suggesting that films should only reflect reality (like Pink, Neerja or Dhoni biopic.) They could also be fanciful films like The Jungle Book(2016), which was also very popular. But it's extremely important to know and then claim what you have made. It's a wonderful new India, and it is reflecting in the way we are bridging the gap between our 'hits' and 'good' films."
