The death anniversary of actor Sushant Singh Rajput is June 14th. Sushant died in 2020 at the age of 34, leaving millions of his followers sad. As fans grieve his passing today, let’s look back at five of his most memorable roles:
- MS Dhoni (from MS Dhoni: The Untold Story), Sushant Singh Rajput grabbed the hearts of the audience with his outstanding portrayal as Mahendra Singh Dhoni in the biopic. Many were captivated, and others were even perplexed as to whether they were seeing Sushant or Dhoni on film, demonstrating Sushant’s talent as a performer. Sushant took notice of everything, from Dhoni’s gait to the way he communicates, and it was well conveyed in the film.
- Kedarnath’s Mansoor Khan, Sushant Singh Rajput brought beauty to the screen as ‘Mansoor’ in the heartbreaking love story. The audience was drawn to him because of his purity and nobility. Sara Ali Khan’s Bollywood debut was an interfaith love tale set among the horrific and infamous Kedarnath floods and landslides that killed many people in 2013.
- Sarfaraz Yusuf from PK, Even though Sushant was just in the picture for a few minutes, his contribution was significant. Sushant plays Sarfaraz, a Pakistani lad who falls in love with Jaggu, an Indian girl (played by Anushka Sharma). People fell in love with his charisma, and reviewers lauded him for his on-screen honesty and simplicity.
- Kai Po Che’s Ishan Bhatt, With Kai Po Che, Sushant made the leap from TV actor to Bollywood star. He portrayed an unsuccessful cricketer who became infatuated with the sport and eventually became a coach. Sushant, who co-starred with Rajkummar Rao and Amit Sadh, nailed his role and provided the industry’s greatest debut performance that year.
- Chhichhore’s Aniruddh Pathak, Sushant gave another outstanding performance in Chhichhore, which was a tremendous box office success. Sushant sped through several shades of his character Aniruddh Pathak, an engineering graduate suffering divorce whose world comes crumbling down when his only kid attempts suicide after failing an engineering admission exam. Sushant displayed a wide range of emotions throughout the film, oscillating between a colourful past and a stressful present, and won millions of hearts!
