Sushant Singh Rajput – R Madhavan Quash All Rumours Of Chanda Mama Door Ke Being Shelved

Another film starring Sushant Singh Rajput in troubled waters

Just last month, India.com exclusively told you how Sushant Singh Rajput’s future projects are in jeopardy. We heard that some of his projects have been put on hold since producers are in two minds about going ahead funding his films. Thanks to the debacle of Raabta, Sushant’s producers want to rethink the budget.

Sushant has already started filming Abhishek Kapoor’s Kedarnath where he is paired opposite debutant Sara Ali Khan and has Tarun Mansukhani’s Drive with Jacqueline Fernandez. While this one is yet to go on floors, he had been posting pictures of his preps for Sanjay Puran Singh Chauhan’s Chanda Mama Door Ke.

However, as per a report on Spotboye, EROS, which was bankrolling the project, has pulled out of the film citing financial reasons and that has left the director panic stricken. He is now looking for someone to bail him out of the situation and fund the film. The report also suggests that Chanda Mama Door Ke might get shelved.

Sushant Singh Rajput Signs A Film That Was Rejected By Varun Dhawan?

Quite interestingly, amid these reports, we spotted the film’s co-stars Sushant and R Madhavan indulge in a tete-e-tete on Twitter and talk about how excited they are to get on the sets and work together. It all started when Sushant replied to one report saying that he is bothered by his co-star’s role in Chanda Mama Door Ke. He said, “Ain’t true, I believe there are no small roles but only, possibly small actors and Madhavan is a great one and I often learn from him.”

Acknowledging this tweet, Madhavan posted, “You are as wise as you are handsome bro. I wish they knew we are way better than this…can’t wait to get on the sets with you.” Sushant was quick to respond with, “I just can’t wait to work with you brother!!” Now, with that the two stars have very smartly quashed all the rumours about Chanda Mama Door Ke being shelved. However, the film’s fate still lies undecided until the director finds a producer.


Chanda Mama Door Ke is a science-fiction space film where Sushant will play an astronaut and R. Madhavan will play a test pilot. The two stars have already made trips to NASA as part of their preps for the film. Earlier, there were rumours about Shraddha Kapoor playing the female lead in the film, but latest reports suggest that Bhumi Pednekar has bagged the part.
