In an interview with the Times Of India, Sandeep was asked if he would make a film about Sushant Singh Rajput's life. To this, the filmmaker said, "Not at all. I think people should let him rest in peace. I will never make a film about his life. People have offered me a lot of money for the same. They don’t realise what his family, friends, and relatives must have gone through."
