Director Abhishek Kapoor often talks about the late actor Sushant Singh Rajput who died in 2020. The filmmaker worked with SSR on his first film, Kai Po Che, which was released in 2013. The two later worked together in Kedarnath in 2018. Not very popular at the box office at the time of release, the film and Sushant Singh Rajput’s Sonchiria (2019) fell in love after his death. In a recent interaction, Kapoor admitted that Sushant’s death prompted people to realize his talent and “recognize his work”.
“Sonchiria and Sushant fell in love a lot after their death. Perhaps the media did not recognize his work. Like in Kedarnath and how there is something in that film … there is love, there is truth. But it was not accepted until he died, which suddenly brought people out of their sleep and everyone stood up to say they loved this guy. He is a special person, his absence is a big loss, ”Abhishek told Sushant while talking to Bollywood Bubble.
When asked if Sushant was the original choice for his recent release Chandigarh Kare AashiquiKapoor said that the casting for the film started after Sushant’s death.
“After his death, the casting of the film began. I have not even finished the script and I do not usually act in a movie until I write it, ”he concluded.
Sushant died on June 14, 2020. In December, Abhishek and Sushant Kedarnath recently completed three years of release. The film celebrates the memory of director Sushant. “Among all the gratitude and love, I can not help the deadly loss of this extraordinary soul engraved with the legacy of this film. I still feel like looking back at Mansour in the sacred mountains with his distinctive smile that reflects all the innocence & beauty of this world, ”he wrote in a post.
Sarah Ali Khan, who made her debut with Kedarnath, paid tribute to Sushant and talked about how his “unwavering support, selfless help, constant guidance and kind advice” helped her performance in her “first and most special” film.
