Sushant Singh Rajput speaks about getting appreciated by the megastar, his upcoming film and more
Sushant Singh Rajput can never quite get over the fond memories of his childhood days and the strong bond he shared with his mother. During the recent pre-release promotions of his upcoming film, Raabta, the actor recently admitted that there was nothing that excited him more than a powerful performance and the fact that he could connect with the audiences through his roles.
More interestingly, when he was quizzed on how it felt when the Shahenshah of Bollywood complimented him a few months ago for his memorable last scene in MS Dhoni, Sushant said, “It was a very good feeling no doubt but it reminded me of my mother. When Mr Bachchan later sent a bouquet of flowers with a handwritten letter I remembered how my mother was a great fan of Mr Bachchan. I was teary-eyed and wondered how happy she would have been to see it. I was closest to her and lost her at the young age of 13 and that one incident changed my life to a great extent,” he said, adding that there were few things that excited him in life, “There is nothing that excites me apart from the idea of performing and connecting to audiences.”
On a second thought, he said that some of his best takes on performances were never planned and very spontaneous. “I can say that after all the hard work and the preparation, the takes that I am very good at are invariably the ones, when I didn’t remember what I was doing. So all the preparations for a good take have to be in a state where you do it rather spontaneously,” he added.
When asked about what was his definition of Raabta, he said, “It is an inexplicable connection to something that you cannot reason out but are sure it happens. The film tries to emphasize the fact that true love remains undiluted with time, no matter whether it is one lifetime or two. If there is anything that allows you to make sense of anything it is love. There is nothing more worthy than it.”
