2 years of ‘Kedarnath’: When Abhishek Kapoor said ‘everything was centered around Sara, Sushant Singh Rajput was lost’

Sushant Singh Rajput may have left a void in this world after his untimely death in June this year, however, the actor’s work would always keep the actor alive in the hearts of millions of his fans. 

Sushant Singh Rajput, who has a significant body of work in Bollywood, gave one of his most notable performances in the 2018 film Kedarnath. It was also the debut film of actor Sara Ali Khan. 

The film was a dramatic retelling of the calamitous flash floods in Uttarakhand in June 2013 in which 4,000 people died and 70,000 went missing.

As Kedarnath completes two years today, director Abhishek Kapoor shared a heartwarming photo with Sushant and wrote, “Itni saari yaadein koot koot ke bhari hain, phir bhi khaali khaali sa lagta hai (So many memories to cherish but it still feels empty). #kedarnath #2yearsofkedarnath #sushantsinghrajput.”

In an interview after Sushant’s death, Abhishek Kapoor, who has worked with Sushant in his debut film ‘Kai Po Che’ and later in ‘Kedarnath’, had said that he was a “troubled man, whose mind was systematically dismantled by the industry.”

Abhishek had told Enquiry, on YouTube, “He was very troubled while we were shooting for Kedarnath. But when we shot, he was 100% there. He never threw tantrum, it was cold, he had to carry Sara on his back, and he never said no if I asked for retakes. I couldn’t pay much attention to him during the shoot, but I knew we would reconnect if he wanted to.”

The filmmaker said that Sushant felt that all the media attention had diverted towards Sara Ali Khan and that he became reclusive.

He had said, “I remember when Kedarnath was coming out, the media had just slammed it. I don’t know what happened, he could see that he was not getting the kind of love because everything was centered around Sara at that time. He was just kind of lost.”
