Exclusive: Our last unreleased interview with the late Sushant Singh Rajput

Sushant Singh Rajput was an impressive actor. Right from his debut film Kai Po Che! to Chhichhore, the actor gave some impeccable performances. The man was passionate about his work and loved watching films. Filmfare had a great bond with Sushant. We had shot with him on several occasions and his covers proved to be a hit always. Whenever we met him, it was more of a conversation than an interview. He graced a lot of our events and brought his infectious energy along with him. In our last conversation with him, we had asked Sushant Singh Rajput about the films that left a solid impact on him while growing up. The actor picked several classics and even a famous Hollywood flick to tell us the impact movies had on him while growing up. Here are his picks… 

 

Jurassic Park: When I saw it, I knew it’s not real but it had that much needed impact on me. Films are like a dream. That was the first time I got fascinated with films.

Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge: When I saw this film I just wanted to be this Raj. Raj had got everything falling for in place. He’s a popular guy, so girls also fall for him but when he falls in love it’s just one. He’s a rich guy who hates studying. But his father is still proud of him and loves him for his weakness in studies and he was allowed to go to Europe for a vacation. But Raj is also someone who wouldn’t steal away the love of his life from her family. This is the kind of guy which my mother would have been very proud of and also I would be proud to be. That’s why I say that Shah Rukh Khan has a great influence on me. His characters defined the kind of aspirations I have in life.

Kuch Kuch Hota Hai: In 1998 this guy who is very popular in his college, wears a cool locket, plays basketball is very popular with all the girls and suddenly he meets this girl and he says that mera sar sirf teen logon ke saamne jhukta hai- Durga maa, meri maa aur then he bows down to her.

Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai: Where Hrithik Roshan was everything in that film which a hero should be like. Good looking, acts well, great dancer and slightly looking forward to action also but there was not much action in the film but I still remember that song Sitaron Ki Mehfil… and then that Kaho Naa pyaar hai happened again and I was like wow, I really want to be an actor. Till then I was only fascinated by the characters which Shah Rukh did. And then there was this guy who was everything.

Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham: Then there was this film that had both the actors in it and was again the kind of film that we are talking about. Europe, chopper, everything that you can dream off and then a very spiritual family values all those things. Basically Karan Johar has done it all. I remember after K3G I was in my prime years because I had to sit for IIT. Imagine somebody whose everything is at stake has to sit for the most competitive exam in India and when he takes a break in between studies what does he do? This guy goes to, I’m not self-obsessed, was never, I look myself in the mirror and I switch on Sooraj hua maddham and I would lip-sync it.
