Salman Khan and family sabotaged my career, claims director Abhinav Singh Kashyap
Penning his thoughts in the aftermath of Sushant Singh Rajput’s suicide, the Dabanng director wrote he was bullied and gaslighted for years
Director Abhinav Singh Kashyap has alleged in a Facebook post that his career was sabotaged by Salman Khan and his family. Abhinav made his Bollywood debut with 2010’s Dabangg, starring Salman and produced by Arbaaz Khan Productions. While the film was a box-office hit, the director had a fallout with the Khans over returning to direct its sequel.
Abhinav claimed Arbaaz and Sohail tried to take control of his career after Dabangg. He also said that the sustained gaslighting and bullying destroyed his mental health and led to his divorce.
Penning his thoughts in the aftermath of actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s suicide, Abhinav wrote, “The reason I moved out of making Dabangg 2 ten years ago is because Arbaaz Khan in collusion with Sohail Khan and family was trying to take control of my career by bullying me.”
He added, “Arbaaz Khan sabotaged my second project with Shree Ashtavinayak Films that I was signed up with by personally calling their head Mr. Raj Mehta and threatening him with dire consequences if they made a film with me.”
