It is said that Sushant decided to kill himself after battling depression due to going out of work in Bollywood. However, according to interviews by friends and a few filmmakers, it is revealed that he had multiple projects lines up. In a recent interview, Rumi Jaffery said, "I have been listening to all these debates on TV channels and it hurts me a lot. The reason is that you know how the industry works. If anyone could plan or conspire to make someone’s career, so many directors and producers would have made their kids’ careers by now. No one can make or break anyone’s career. Whether you are an insider or an outsider, only your talent will take you anywhere. Sushant was an outsider but because of his talent, Yash Raj hired him for their films, Sajid Nadiadwala hired him, Dangal director Nitesh Tiwari hired him after Aamir (Khan)."
He added, "There are a lot of rumours that Sushant was out of work, but in recent interviews by friends and directors, it has come to light that he had multiple projects in pipeline. On the other hand, there are also allegations that he lost a number of movies because of professional rivalry, but no one has yet come ahead to name those movies which were lost..money and was not short of it at all. Actors get money today for appearances etc., too apart from doing films."
