'Why do you end your life?': Amitabh Bachchan remembers Sushant Singh Rajput with a heart-rending post
Mumbai | Jagran Entertainment Desk: The ripples caused by Sushant Singh Rajput’s untimely death because of the extreme step of suicide the 34-year-old undertook are continuing to expand far and wide. On Tuesday, the superstar of millennium Amitabh Bachchan wrote a tear-inducing post, remembering the actor who was iconising himself after each passing film.
"Why ... Why ... Why ... Why ... Sushant Singh Rajput ... why do you end your life.. your brilliant talent ... your brilliant mind ... laid to rest, without asking, seeking ... why," Gulabo-Sitabo superstar wrote in his blog.
“His work was sheer brilliance .. and his mind even more .. many a time did he express himself in the depth of philosophical verb .. they that looked passed it were either in wonder or oblivious of its strength of meaning .. some wondered, some quibbled .. to some it was a subdued mirth .. subdued because , for it to be given lethargic ignorance, would have opened the caves of their own,” wrote Amitabh Bachchan.
Bachchan recalled the instant when he asked Sushant how did he perfect that winning six by Dhoni in Wankhede during World Cup Final. Sushant said that he watched Dhoni making that shot at least a hundred times.
“I saw a complete work of his in ‘DHONI’,” wrote Bachchan, while adding further that, “on one of my meetings with him, I asked him how did he manage to give that iconic shot of Dhoni hitting a six winning the International tournament , to absolute perfection .. he said he saw that video of Dhoni, a hundred times .. !! .. that was the severity of his professional effort.”
Bachchan also tried to dissect Sushant’s psyche which led him to take this extreme step, while explaining some moments which he observed in Sushant when he was playing the role of MS Dhoni in his biopic.
“they were done with such casual conviction that it would be difficult for an analyst of some credibility, to either notice it , or give attention to its bearing .. .. when he spoke or communicated, there was something of an inner value, which had remained unsaid , yet said in its covered all .. its a trait of excessive intelligence .. and when that takes a diversion from the highway, it invariably ends up against a road bloc - depressive , unwanted , and in belligerent frustration,” wrote Bachchan.
The 34-year-old actor killed himself at his home in Mumbai's Bandra on Sunday and his last rites were performed in Vile Parle-located crematorium in Mumbai. Sushant is survived by his parents and four sisters. His last film ‘Dil Bechara’ based-on Novelist John Green’s ‘The Fault In Our Stars’ is shortly expected to release on Hotstar.
