Filmmaker Abhishek Kapoor recalls working with Sushant Singh Rajput during the 2018 movie Kedarnath.

Filmmaker Abhishek Kapoor worked with Sushant Singh Rajput for films like Kedarnath and Kai Po Che. In a recent interview, Kapoor recalled the time he spent with Sushant and revealed that the latter was ‘disturbed’ during the shoot of their 2018 movie Kedarnath.

“I remember Sushant being very overweight when we auditioned him and my condition to him was that, I showed him a picture of an American actor and I said, ‘You got to look like this because you’re a cricketer.’ He wouldn’t say much. He was not a man of too many words. But in 3 months, he worked so hard and he would be there at six in the morning for cricket practice, the gym training and by the end of it, he looked like it,” Abhishek said while speaking to Siddharth Kannan.

The filmmaker further recalled how Sushant would shoot in freezing conditions, which also inspired Sara Ali Khan. “Sushant led the way. He did it first and the next day Sara saw him doing it and she also realized that okay if this guy is doing it, I will also do. That’s what drove her to do it,” he said.

Kapoor further claimed that Sushant was ‘disturbed’ during Kedarnath’s shoot and argued that the actor looked ‘isolated and helpless’. “He was a bit disturbed in those days. He was a very strong guy mentally and physically he could take on anything. He was a great guy. I think he was finding himself to be very isolated and quite helpless. He was drifting away,” he added.

Released in 2018, Kedarnath was a romantic drama which was set in the backdrop of the deadly 2013 North India floods. In the film, SSR played the role of a Muslim man named Mansoor Khan who fell in love with the daughter of a Hindu priest, Sara Ali Khan.

Sushant Singh Rajput was found dead in his Mumbai apartment in 2020.
