Taking to Twitter, Vivek Agnihotri posted an old monochrome selfie which features him and Sushant clicking a candid selfie. He was dressed in a baseball cap and striped sweater. 

Sharing the picture, Vivek wrote, “Remembering Sushant Singh Rajput. Am exactly at the same place where we spent many evenings talking about life, cosmos, God’s particle, @shekharkapur’s #Paani and struggles of a middle class, small town person in Bollywood.”


For the unversed, Sushant was reportedly a self-confessed nerd and his interests often ranged from Particle Physics to Astrophysics. An engineering dropout, he had often expressed his regret about not being able to get his degree. 

Interestingly, Paani, which Vivek mentioned in his tweet, was an ambitious film launched by Shekhar Kapur with Sushant in lead.

However, the film was shelved months after the actor had begun preparing for it as Yash Raj Films pulled out.

A Hindustan Times report also quoted an old interaction with Manoj Bajpayee, Shekhar had said he and Sushant had both cried when that happened. “When the film was shelved and he realised he wasn’t doing the film, he cried a lot. I cried too. I would cry every time he cried because I was also passionately and deeply involved with it,” he said.
