In a seven year long film career, Sushant Singh Rajput delivered several successful films and was revered as one of the best performers from the younger generation. And he's also been one actor who's worked with the maximum number of debutante heroines. From Vaani Kapoor to Disha Patani, Sara Ali Khan to Sanjana Sanghi now, many actresses had SSR as their first hero. 

When Kedarnath was hitting the marquee, Sara spoke about how supportive and helpful Sushant was to her, during the entire filming of the Abhishek Kapoor directorial. Now, with Dil Bechara up for a digital release this Friday, we asked Sanjana about Sushant and she had a similar thing to say about the late star. "I didn't realise it till I started shooting for the film. Dil Bechara is plonked on Kizie's shoulders; it's a story being told through her eyes. Sushant had complete humility in knowing that; it's not a surprise. It's rare because we tend to tell stories from the male gaze up until now. There was complete acceptance of that. His craft, his control over the technique is so heightened. I just always say is because he's forever. I can't say was; it doesn't come."

She further adds that Sushant gave her an equal footing in the film, despite being a star and senior to her. "Sushant gave me my side of the football playing field. That side was his, this side was mine. He said, 'We will keep passing the ball, but otherwise we are dribbling on our own'. And that is everything." Clearly, the industry didn't just lose a shining star but also a gem of a human being.

Wow this girl is as fake as they come. She is liar and paid Agent. When the metoo nonsense first came up she took many days nearly a month to respond. That is clearly a month of sushant's name character questioned. Now she is trying to save her career and doesn't give a damn about sushant.. Even after she puts out her fake message she didnt strongly support sushant. Boycott aditya chopra and ranveer singh and boycott this so called sanjana, rhea etc..Mumbai police another paid Agent should investigate the metoo nonsense as well!!

Why why why didn't you say all this a few months ago. U may have helped a man realize that he is not as bad as he is being written about. All the nice things everyone is saying now is worthless, meaningless cr*p as it means nothing now. These were the things he craved to hear from everyone but everyone was out sucking up to the mighty ones above n this small town guy didn't really matter to anyone.

Sushant was so much more than Media presented him to be... He was a Visionary, a true artists.educated ... Mozart, Van Gogh level of creativity.. But media that was on Karan johars payroll ,rajeev Madan,krk made several attempts to make him look like he was loose character "TV actor "who was made fun of in chat shows .This wasmaybe because they had realized that this guy was of a much greater level Than them and wanted to put him down to anexcruciating level beforr audience realised who he actually was. Your mothers should be ashamed of giving birth to you Karan johar, Aditya Chopra, Salman Khan and even alia Bhatt and sonam ....be ready for your doom ..pv post this

Kangana removed outsider Sonu sood from Manikarnika after 45 days of shoot. She removed outsider director Krish who shot 70% of the film. She is insulting outsiders like Tapsee & Swara on national TV But she claims that she is fighting for outsiders. LOL #WorldWantsCBIForSSR
