The journey of the boy who belongs to Patna made a reputation for himself on the television screen, especially with Pavitra Rishta, where he played the lead role, and touched the hearts of the audience, before jumping to the big screen.
Sushant inaugurated his Bollywood presence with Abhishek Kapoor’s Kai Po Che, based on Chetan Bhagat’s bestselling novel, ‘The Three Mistakes of My Life.’ The nomination for Best Male (Debut) in Filmfare Awards was a stepping stone towards his journey to success.

His last big screen release was ‘Chhichhore’, a movie that beautifully dealt with how to battle suicidal thought and failure. The movie was directed by Nitesh Tiwari.
He splendidly explained the significance of life via his dialogue:
“Hum haar jeet, success failure mein itna ulajh gaye hai ki zindagi jeena bhool gaye hai. Zindagi mein agar kuch sabse zyada important hai, toh woh hai khud Zindagi.”
His death came as a wake up call for everyone and made everyone realise how interpersonal communication plays a vital role in the lives of the people, and how it is necessary to connect and love.
