Sushant Singh Rajput is a remembering actor. The audience can’t forget him. He has done so many good films. From an outsider to a superb actor, his contribution to the film industry is praiseworthy.

His M.S Dhoni: The untold story was the blockbuster hit. He contributed too much talent to this Bollywood cinema. Sushant was a genius in Physics. In one of his interview, the actor told:-

“After an initial phase of the struggle, I got noticed once I landed the lead role in Ekta Kapoor’s daily soap Pavitra Rishta. But I wanted to do films, so I quit the show and was jobless for many months and like a true struggler worked at various coffee shops. And then, Kai Po Che happened, and my life changed.”

And the loving, talented actor was unable to tolerate the nepotism in Bollywood industry. He performed so well and entertained people very much, but he is not having any so-called Godfather in the Bollywood industry.
