The tragic demise of Sushant Singh Rajput has sent shockwaves across the country. While we are not able to overcome the loss of this talented actor, a throwback video of SSR and Sara Ali Khan has surfaced on the internet, where the Simmba actress is praising her Kedarnath costar and expressing gratitude to guide her in the film. In the press conference video, we see Sara telling, “I don’t know how I’ve done in the film. I’ve really, really tried my best. But I don’t think I would’ve been able to do any of it without Sushant. He has just been the most helpful person to have had. There were days when I was a little lost, I was a little scared, but he was just always hands-on. Whatever broken Hindi I speak, Sushant has taught me.”
Talking about the SSR’s demise, Sara’s father Saif Ali Khan told TOI, “She (Sara Ali Khan) liked him very much. She was quite impressed with certain aspects of his personality. She told me he was very intelligent, that he could discuss, you know, Jean-Paul Sartre and he could discuss various aspects of philosophy and engineering and that he had learned how to shoot with a bow and arrow left handed, and he was very fit as well as very hard-working, and a good actor,” Saif said, adding that she always talked of him as ‘being a really remarkable person’.
Sushant Singh Rajput’s Kedarnath, which marked the acting debut of Sara Ali Khan, was directed by Kai Po Che and Fitoor helmer, Abhishek Kapoor.
