A Tribute: Sushant Singh Rajput

I felt very sad when I heard the news of his demise. I used to feel proud thinking that he is a resident of Rajiv Nagar, Patna nearby our home  and in a very short time he made a special place in the hearts of me and everyone.  

His journey from being an engineering student at Delhi Technological University to being an admired actor started when he joined Barry John’s drama classes after being influenced by his friends in his dance classes.

He found his passion for acting and once said, “I found the experience liberating. I realized that I could communicate with the audience. I knew I wanted to do this forever.”

He was from a middle class family, down to earth human being, who left his four-year degree course at the end of his third year, to pursue his love for acting.

Sushant, despite losing his mother in 2002, has inspired many with his story of success in Bollywood. He was a role model for those who aspire to act, desired to be a part of the theatre and who love to portray the art they hold.

Rajput, though from a non-acting background, found his meaning in acting

His journey in film started from his debut in Kai Po che in 2013, following Sudhh Desi Romance in 2013,supporting role in P K in 2014, M S Dhoni..The untold story in 2016, Kedarnath 2018, chhichhore 2019 and others..

I read somewhere that ..Sushant’s ‘Dhoni’ is the most loved role. In praise of his role in “MS Dhoni: The Untold Story”, Manoj Bajpai writes, “Every morning and evening he would religiously go out for his practice sessions with the former Indian wicket-keeper Kiran More. He played the role so well, the manner in which he imbibed the essence of Dhoni was impeccable.”

In an interview, Sushant mentioned how he used to bunk his classes to watching Dhoni in India’s cricket matches. He added that he was a big fan which is why he was able to play ‘Mahi’ with perfection. 

Who knew that the man who starred in “Chhichhore”, a movie that beautifully dealt with battling suicidal thoughts was going through such thoughts himself ? ‘Anni’ taught us that we are living the wrong way, not planning for when we fail and that we need to fight the thoughts which move us towards suicide.

Complementing Sara Ali Khan in her debut movie “Kedarnath”, he performed a role which was one that he played with a massive heart. Sushant taught each of us to fight the failures in life, both as a human being and through the characters he played.

Really this year 2020 is awful for us and is full of sad news, we are very hurt due to the sudden death of Sushant.

 Sushant, we will not only remember you as Anni or Dhoni but also as an artist, a man who taught us to rise again when we fail and as a man who taught us that “loser” is a happy word. 

From 1986 to 2020, your life was too short to end now.

We had the privilege of being entertained by a man who said, “The biggest mystery in your life will be you. Forever. Period”.  We will forever remember him as an inspiration. 

BE HAPPY… BE ACTIVE … BE FOCUSED ….. BE ALIVE,,
