It's been almost 10 months since actor Sushant Singh Rajput left for heavenly abode. Many of his family members, fans, friends and co-stars have been recalling his memories on certain occasions. On April Fool's Day, actor Sahil Vaid walked down the memory lane to share how Sushant had once tried to prank him on the sets of "Dil Bechara".

“Sushant was a science buff. He loved sharing information about the subject with people around him, and one day he decided to pull a prank on me with his 'science ka gyaan'. I remember he came to me with a paper in his hand. He had written a lot of equations on it. His main motive was to make me believe that Albert Einstein's theory of relativity is wrong. He was talking non-stop about the theory.

“From solving equations to giving examples, he did his best to convince me. I actually kept listening to him for a long time. But, being a science student I soon realised he's trying to fool me. He was hoping that I was one of those lost students in a class who pretend to be attentive. He had failed to prank me but a lot of people on the set actually believed him. He was a fun loving guy. I miss him. His memories will always be etched in my heart,” Sahil, who had played the role of Sushant's best friend in "Dil Bechara", recalled.

For the unversed, Sushant, who breathed his last on June 14, 2020, was an engineering student at Delhi College of Engineering and even got a scholarship from Stanford University. However, he left engineering to pursue a career in acting. On Sushant's 35th birth anniversary earlier this year, his sister Shweta Singh Kirti had even announced a special scholarship fund for students interested in pursuing Astrophysics at UC Berkeley.

“I am happy to announce that on 35th Birthday of Bhai, a step has been taken towards fulfilling one of his dreams. The Sushant Singh Rajput Memorial Fund of $35,000 has been set up in UC Berkeley. #SushantDay,” Shweta had tweeted on January 21, 2021.
