Filmmaker reminisces about Sushant Singh Rajput's down-to-earth attitude

Although Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death occurred months ago, people are still mourning the loss. Filmmaker Pankaj Purohit says, “It was not just Rajput’s acting talents that made him special. It was his passion, his hard work, his ability to focus on his goals and become successful, that set him apart.”

Talking about the time the filmmaker first met SSR, he says, “I had the pleasure of meeting Rajput back in 2013. I was instantly taken by his down to earth attitude as well as his infectious joviality. But what will always stay with me is the advice he gave me on the day we met. Rajput had said, ‘Conduct yourself like the person you want to be’, and had added, If you are a TV actor but your dream job is to become a star, work hard so that the people above you notice your drive, commitment and loyalty. Be grateful. Thank God for what you have and for the things that have not happened in your life yet’.”

The filmmaker says that SSR’s drive could be clearly seen in the way he conducted his work routines. “He followed a set schedule that would ensure he was in the best shape possible in terms of taking on what life had in store for him. Before his demise, he was already thinking beyond his acting career. He was working on opening AI companies that would change the world for the better. This is another example of the kind of focus he applied to everything that he did.”
