Two years after his shocking demise, Sushant Singh Rajput still rules the hearts of many and we will never forget his path-breaking career!
Sushant Singh Rajput had a glorious career and went on to give us roles that will always continue to live with us on-screen. He really was one of the few celebrities who needed no introduction. After a phenomenal body of work and immense fan-following, his death was one of the biggest tragedies of 2020. After his demise, the phrase ‘Legends never die, they become a part of you’ just hits differently. We will always remember his kind-hearted words for everyone around him and a magnetic aura that’s truly like no other!
Here are a few unforgettable highlights from his journey that we’ll always remember!
Beginning from Pavitra Rishta when he became the heartthrob of the nation with his character, Manav, and how everyone swooned over his chemistry with Anikta Lokhande. He became one of the first TV actors to probably have the same grandeur of fan following as Bollywood actors did.
He then went on to participate in Jhalak Dikhla Jaa and showed everyone that along with amazing acting skills and his charms, dancing was also one of his areas of expertise. I remember how particularly fun that season was to watch as an audience at home, and how everyone rooted for him to win that show.
In a time where TV actors were looked down upon and not given an opportunity to showcase their talent in Bollywood, Sushant Singh Rajput emerged as a shining new debut as Ishan Bhatt in Kai Po Che and proved to everyone in the industry that he was here to stay.
His portrayal of Mahendra Singh Dhoni in M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story, became one of the best performances of that year and garnered him a lot of acclaim from the critics as well as the public. He knew he was stepping into some big shoes and looking back now, there really could not have been anyone better than him to play the role of the most beloved batsman of the country.
He then brought magic on-screen with his character, Mansoor in the heart-wrenching love story of Kedarnath. The innocence and purity of heart that he exuded made it easy for everyone to fall in love with the character.
Another splendid role that he garnered was Anirudh Pathak from Chhichhore where he felt and expressed a variety of emotions, from his fun adventures as a college student in the past to a tensed father in the present.
All of these are touted to be some of his best performances to date and he will always be remembered as someone who was never afraid to tap into his potential as an actor and experiment with his craft.
Apart from his movies, he also had a keen interest in Astro and quantum physics. He always had a knack to learn more about the field and often used to intently gaze at the celestial bodies through his telescope. The physicist in Sushant Singh Rajput was a perfect example of ‘beauty with brains’.
Talking about all his achievements throughout his journey is the best way to honor his legacy and the impact that he made on his fans. An actor par excellence and an intellectual super human is what he’ll always be known as forever!
