Sushant Singh Rajput was not only a great actor but a thinker too. He always said the right things, he always knew how to keep a conversation interesting and his statements would always leave you in thoughts.
21 Jan marks his birth anniversary. On this special day, we dug deep into the past and found an interesting interview of Sushant where he talked about his expectations from life, a lesson from his mother and more.
A reporter asked him what kind of film would be boundless for him. To this, he replied, “Instead of film, the story that will be boundless will be of my life. My mother used to tell me that your life is a story that you tell to yourself. So, I will try that the story I tell myself is good and true.”
He added, “When a person is out to find his potential, he should know that it is boundless. I think that would make a good start.”
When asked if he writes too, the actor said, “Yes, I write too. But these are just nouns. I always say that I am a verb, not a noun. Be it poet, actor, college drop-out or science enthusiast, these names are just temporary. What I love is the process. So, yes, I write. But let’s see who’ll read that.”
Sushant’s career began with Ekta Kapoor’s soap opera ‘Pavitra Rishta’. He became a household name with his character of Manav Deshmukh in the show. However, he then left the TV industry and began his career in Bollywood. When asked if he would ever work with Ekta Kapoor for Television again, he said, “Not only TV, but I would want to work with her on any platform. As I said earlier, apart from my family, if there’s any other person who has been very instrumental in my life, it is Ekta Ma’am. Wherever I am today, I am because of her. She just has to order and I will follow it.”
Sushant Singh Rajput delivered remarkable films in his short career. This includes Kai Po Che, MS Dhoni, Chhichhore, Kedarnath and Sonchiriya. His last film was Dil Bechara that released shorty after his demise.
