The film industry is in complete shock after the Sushant Singh Rajput demise. There is no outpouring of grief for those who have worked with or been close to Sushant. No one is sure that Sushant is no more. It is sadder that he went in this way, which nobody would have imagined even in his dream. Shraddha Kapoor, who worked with Sushant in ‘Chichore’, is in a similar situation. Even after four days, that reverence is immersed in this sorrow. After a little handling, Shraddha shared her memories of Sushant on Instagram, via a highly emotional note.
Shraddha wrote- “I am trying to accept what has happened. It is very difficult. There has been a great emptiness, Sushant. Dear Sushant Polite, intelligent, curious for life, beauty in everything, everywhere. One who dances in his own fun. Always hopeful on the set. Thinking about what our next conversation would be. He was a brilliant personality with an excellent fellow artist.
The people he valued wanted to see him happy. His sweet smile. During the film shoot, we used to talk about astronomy, various philosophy. The moments we went through were full of magic. An evening of poetry and music at his home. He showed the moon with his telescope, and I was silent after seeing this beauty so close.
Our Chhichhore Gang had gone to their house, where Shanti and Prakrit took a delight. He loved nature very much. Common things fascinated him and he used to see him in his genius style. Really, he was the only one of his kind. Shraddha says I will miss you very much. Dearest “Sushant”. Keep on shining.’
Chhichhore was released in 2019. The film was directed by Dangal’s Nitesh Tiwari. Sushant played the role of an engineer who considers himself a loser in the film, but when the teenage son tries to commit suicide, he is shaken and then tells the story of his loser gang to cheer him up.
Film “Chichore” was commercially successful and is considered one of Sushant’s finest performances. Sushant had committed suicide at his Mumbai residence on 14 June. However, the exact cause of suicide has not yet been known. It is being said that he was in depression for six months.

Been trying to accept what has happened and coming to terms with it is very difficult. There is a huge void… Sushant…! Dearest Sush…! Full of humility, intelligence, curiosity about life, seeing beauty in everything, everywhere! He danced to his own tune! I always looked forward to seeing him on set, wondering what captivating interaction we would have next! Apart from being a wonderful co-actor who put his heart and soul in to his work, he was at his core, an amazing person. He cared for people and wanted to see them happy. His kind smile, the conversations we had at shoot about the Cosmos, different philosophies, the moments we spent together, were filled with magical wonderment! During a lovely musical and poetry filled get together at his home (he loved music and poetry), he showed me the moon from his telescope and I was so speechless that I could see it’s exquisite beauty up close!! He wanted to share that feeling! Our Chhichhore gang went to his beautiful home in Pavna, where we were awestruck together with the peace and calm of the nature around us – he loved nature! He saw things through a kaleidoscopic lens and wanted to share that with everyone around him. He was mesmerized by the simplest things and would muse on them in a genius way…! He was truly, One of a kind… I’ll miss you.. dearest Sush.. Shine on… ✨💜
