This sighting has triggered rumours that the former telly actor could be in SLB’s next.
A source close to SLB says, “When Bhansali saw Sushant for the first time, that very moment he thought of casting him. But he did not think it would happen so soon. Bhansali attended the actor’s surprise party arranged by his girlfriend Ankita Lokhande.”
The source adds that this new film could begin after SLB finishes his Ranveer Singh-Deepika Padukone starrer and his project on Olympic boxer Mary Kom. “But at the same time he is also in talks to rope in a director for the film and the actress is also to be finalised.”
