Sushant was the only person who I could have conversations about physics, philosophy, psychology, acting and statistics. I’m a Gemini and he was an Aquarius — you can only imagine how intellectual our conversations would be. Through Sushant, I had the pleasure of meeting his close friends, Kushal Zaveri and Sidhart Gupta, who continue to inspire me today. Kushal is very hardworking and we are teaming up for a project. We hope to take our friend’s legacy forward. His death traumatised the country and sparked several debates. I urge all his fans to carry on his legacy. He had a to-do list and we can all come together to fulfil — be it planting trees, studying astrophysics, delving into researches that interested him or working hard on our artistic endeavours.
Sushant was a nice man. I knew him since his television days — when he was launched by Balaji. He was a down-to-earth guy and we were all pretty close. While shooting for Pavitra Rishta we used to hang out and party together. He then moved on in life and started doing films. I feel bad for his family and pray for their happiness. We have lost a young talent who could have gone places.
It’s still unbelievable and very difficult to accept the fact that Sushant Singh Rajput is no more. But we can never ever forget him. He’s always going to be in our hearts. He was truly an inspiration. Hope his soul is resting in peace.
It’s a tragedy that we can never get over. For the man himself and the family and especially his fans and the film fraternity, it was a huge loss. I hope his soul rests in peace. I’m sure his legacy will move on. He will be remembered and respected for years to come.
