Resolution

If you want to make Reason for Rejection at Sales Order Item editable then you have to make Invoice Status as Not Started for that you have to cancel the follow-up documents like project invoice request and customer invoice.

Once the follow-up documents are canceled the sales order item Invoice Status will be set back to as Not Started and you should be able to maintain the Reason for Rejection to cancel the sales order item.
If you want to cancel the entire sales order then you have to revert all the items Invoice Status as Not Started.
