A Timeline of his incredible movies.
Sushant Singh had first started his journey in the TV industry by acting in TV serials. His role Manav Deshmukh in the serial Pavitra Rishta was very much appreciated. In fact, every role he played in the movie industry will forever be remembered. Let us have a look at the timeline of the movies he did.
Kai Po Che (2013)- This movie was a remake of Chetan Bhagat’s popular book “The three mistakes of my life”. As his debut film, Sushant did a brilliant job and even won the Screen Award for best male debut.
Shuddh Desi Romance (2013)- Playing romantic roles was definitely his forte and Sushant played it with ease. This character is still a favourite of many.
PK (2014)- We bet this one is a favourite of many! Packed with laughter and tears, Sushant Singh Rajput nailed the role of Sarfaraz Yousuf in this one with Aamir Khan and Anushka Sharma.
Detective Byomkesh Bakshy (2015)- Absolute masterpiece! Sushant showed everyone that he can play the mysterious, intimidating roles just as brilliantly as the romantic ones.
M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story (2016)- This movie is based on the life story of world famous cricket player Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Sushant put his heart and soul and did full justice. He even won the Screen Award for best actor (critics). This one is a must watch for sure.
Raabta (2017)- This one is based on “reincarnated star crossed lovers”, but didn’t do a great job at the box office. But nonetheless, Sushant Rjput played his character well opposite Kriti Sanon.
Kedarnath (2018)- This movie falls in to the genre of romantic disaster and the story is based on the 2013 massive Uttarakhand floods. He was paired with Sara Ali Khan and the chemistry, plot and the acting, everything was pretty good.
Sonchiriya (2019)- Sushant tried to take a different track through this one rather than doing mainstream cinema always. It’s an action drama set in Chambal and the entire dialogues of the movie are in Bundeli dialect. He received great critic response on this one.
Chhichhore (2019)- Sushant Singh Rajput stole the hearts of everyone with this movie. Playing the role of a father of a teenager preparing for IIT exams, he taught everyone how failure is a part of life when his son tries to commit suicide. This one will definitely make you reach out for the tissues to wipe your tears, but you will also have a smile on your face.
Drive (2019)- This movie released on Netflix and is based on a manhunt for a reputed robber. It failed to be a blockbuster but can be considered as an one-time-watch.
Before his death, Sushant was working on another movie, the shoot for which is over. Named as “Dil Bechara”, the movie will probably be released in 2020 and is based on the famous John Green Novel, “The Fault in our stars”.
The news of Sushant Singh Rajput’s death seems unreal and we really wish it was. The Bollywood industry has suffered a huge loss today and everyone who knew him or saw his acting is heartbroken. We just hope his soul rests in peace. R.I.P to a brilliant actor.
