Ahead of Sushant Singh Rajput’s first death anniversary, his ‘Chhichhore’ co-star Prateik Babbar recalled the time he spent with Sushant on the sets. He told in an interview that Sushant was a friendly person, but sometimes used to go into his own world. Prateek further added that Sushant had a different ‘aura’ of his own, which was unusual among Bollywood actors.
Sushant-Prateik used to bump into each other at events
Prateek said, ‘Sushant and I had a good acquaintance, we used to bump into each other at events. I even saw him in the gym a couple of times. Then I noticed that Sushant had an aura, which no one else in the business had. He was unique and looked different.
Sushant wanted to go to Antarctica after shooting
Prateek further said, ‘He was a very warm, fun loving and easy-going person. But sometimes he used to go into his own world too. Sushant loved to talk, not only did he always try to have a good time on the sets, but he also always took care that other people were also having fun. Sushant loved talking about quantum physics, planets, stars and science. I still remember that he wanted to go to Antarctica after shooting the film. I was shocked to hear that who really thinks about doing this? He did! He was curious about life. He was a person who saw things differently and his priorities stood out from the crowd. He was like a diamond.
