Sushant Singh Rajput made his debut with the movie ‘Kai Po Che’ directed by Abhishek Kapoor. Sushant was very much raved for his performance. His second outing with Abhishek was ‘Kedarnath’ with which Sara Ali Khan made her debut in Bollywood. In a chat with Enquiry, Abhishek told that Sushant was ‘lost’ post the release of ‘Kedarnath’.
Abhishek said, “I had not spoken to him (Sushant) for a year and half. He changed his number 50 times. I remember when ‘Kedarnath’ had come out, the media just slammed him (Sushant). And I don’t know what happened. Sushant could see that he was not getting the kind of love because everything was being said about Sara. He was not talking to me. Sushant was kind of lost. Then I sent him a few messages. Then the film released and it did really well. Again I sent him a message. This is the last exchange I had with him. ‘Bro I have been trying to reach you. I’m not sure if you’re upset, busy or what. But call me soon to chat, we made a superb film again. If we’re not going to celebrate it, who the hell is going to celebrate. What the hell are we gonna celebrate in life.’”
Abhishek also said that he sent Sushant messages in January on his birthday but he didn’t respond. “I just let him be. I could see he is not in a good place. But, you can’t cross a line. You have to reach out halfway. But if you overextend and give unsolicited advice, it loses its value,” he added.
