New Delhi | Jagran Entertainment Desk: Actress-model Lauren Gottlieb shared a series of screenshots of her Whatsapp conversation with Sushant Singh Rajput from four years back, in which the late actor had opened up with Lauren about his transition from Television from films, and how his choice of films sustained his career dynamism.

Lauren, who herself also transitioned from Television to Films—both regional and Bollywood—said that her connection with Sushant was filled with “so much love, kindness, and true support for one another’s dreams.”

In a conversation which has gone viral on Internet, Sushant and Lauren discuss the lineup of films they were working on, with Lauren echoing a warm strand of happiness that her last Punjabi film was the highest-grossing Punjabi film of all time. When asked by Sushant, ‘what next’, Lauren informs him that she is ready to take big leaps in her career, and is saying no to anything small that’s coming her way.

Sushant seconds her assertion, and responds that although transition from TV to films was difficult, he survived because of his choices.

"First u need to convince yourself and then the world follows," Sushant says.

Lauren, too, seconds Sushant on the point of transitioning from TV to films. "…It just felt right to see you switch," Lauren adds.

Sushant even goes on to call himself an average looking boy with average talent who made it big only because of his strong prejudice, but says she’ll probably slap him if he calls himself average looking.

"If an average looking boy with average talent and strong prejudice can make it, trust me anything is possible," Sushant told Lauren four years ago.

In a tear-inducing post, Lauren said that she had a “great connection” with Sushant.

“I felt a deep connection with Sushant as we were both “outsiders” and I looked up to him tremendously! I wanted to share this chat we had to remind everyone to walk, talk, and treat EVERYONE with this great amount of LOVE and SUPPORT as HE shared!!! I’m seeing so much hate going around. I do not want to tell anyone how to grieve, my process this week looked pretty ugly, BUT I think one of the BEST ways to honor his legacy is to BE THE BRIGHT, BEAUTIFUL, LOVING LIGHT that he exuded each and every day. The world is a better place because of Sushant’s humble heart. Let’s keep sharing his magic and be kind to one another,” Lauren writes on Instagram.
