Sushant Singh Rajput was doing his last film with the actress Sanjana Sanghi. The movie was complete but its release was delayed because of the coronavirus pandemic and the subsequent lockdown. His death has certainly shocked everyone and Sanjana is no less. She has shared a tearful goodbye video for his first co-actor Sushant Singh Rajput.
While sharing the video Sanjana wrote, “Abhi toh itna kuch baaki tha, Sushant?, You gave me a forever, within a limited number of days, and for that. I’m forever grateful. – our beloved novel, The Fault In Our Stars, A forever of learnings, and of memories.”
Sanjan continued, “I refreshed my web pages a 100 times hoping I’m reading some sort of horrible joke. I’m not equipped to process any of this. I don’t think I ever will be. I’m definitely not equipped to articulate my feelings, this is me failing, but trying.” Sanjana added, “After 2 years of seemingly all the possible difficulties one single film can face, with all sorts of crap constantly being written, and being relentlessly pursued. We were supposed to FINALLY see our film – my first film, and what you told me you believed was your best film yet, together.” Watch the video:

In her video message, Sanjana recalled how encouraging Sushant was, and that he said he saw infinite potential in her. “I just want to promise you that everyone who loves will forever be grateful for the gift that you’ve left behind,” she said.
She added in her note, “Amidst your struggle, you somehow found a way and had a desire to yell out to me from the opposite side of set screaming ‘Rockstar, itni achi acting thodi na karte hain paagal!’; To guide me over things big & small through our film’s process, To tell me to conserve my energy on set; To discuss even the smallest nuance you thought could change the narrative of a scene and would whole heartedly accept my disagreement; To discuss ways in which we could together forge a brighter educational future for the children of India. You were a force Manny, and you always will be. We’re going to spend an eternity to try and make sense of what you’ve left us behind with, and I personally never will be able to. I simply wish you never left us behind in the first place. Just know, you have a country full of millions, looking up at you, smiling at you, thankful for you. As you smile back at us, from up above. The fact that you get to spend the rest of your time by your mother’s side, I know you gives the only happiness you wanted in the world. John Green wrote this, in our beloved book, The Fault In Our Stars, from my character to yours, but here is me, Sanjana, saying this to you, Sushant : You gave me a forever, within a limited number of days, and for that. I’m forever grateful. A forever of learnings, and memories.”
