Sushant Singh Rajput's demise is hugely shocking to everyone. Someone has rightly said, 'people care when it's far too late.' And the same thing happened with Sushant too. Despite being successful, despite having contacts in the industry, he was all alone and some pain drove him to this. BollywoodLife.com reached out to his costar, Harshad Chopda who played his elder brother, Prem Juneja to his Preet in Kis Des mein Hai Meraa Dil and the actor revealed that he is quite shocked and not able to come to terms with his demise.
"I really feel sad that we've not really kept in touch and we see that he's doing well, he knew that I'm doing well, so we were good and happy. All of us (the cast of the show) are shocked and quiet. We all saw him as someone younger and chirpier. Serious people are different to funny people. He was not the serious type. He was this chulbula, full-of-energy bundle," Harshad Chopda told us.
He shared his fondest memory of working with Sushant on the sets saying, "This Holi sequence, we were shooting next day of Holi, he came fully coloured and we were all laughing, we were all like, 'Ab karwaa lo shoot.' (now, make me shoot) Whenever dance sequenced would come, he used to be so excited. So, there are so many memories. I played his elder brother, but I don't really want to speak too much on his death because I've not really kept in touch."
When probed as to what could have led Sushant to take such a drastic step, the actor said, "I understand people doing things because they don't have money or a career; he had both, man. At least from an outside world, I don't know, it's very strange. I have nothing. Kya bolu main? (what do i say) Even I want to know what has happened, how did it happen because the kind of person he (Sushant) was...very chilled out, that's why it's so unthinkable. He was one happy-go-lucky guy, believing in live and let live. And he had a sense of humor in the way he lived so, like color wagera kaun lagakar shoot par pahuchta hai. (who comes to shoot with colors splashed on himself?) He was so much fun."
Rest in peace, Sushant.
