To celebrate Sushant Singh Rajput’s birth anniversary, we take a look at some of the most memorable characters the inimitable actor had essayed onscreen.
Sushant Singh had a short seven-year career, but it was one marked with remarkable performances. He started his acting career with television serials and was simply too good in each one of them. His transition from television to the movies was seamless and he found instant success with his debut film Kai Po Che, a feat not every newcomer can boast of. From playing cricketer MS Dhoni in MS Dhoni; The story untold to essaying the role of a dacoit in Sonchiriya, from a detective in Detective Byomkesh Bakshyi to a student in his last release Dil Bechara, Sishant played all these roles with effortless ease.
His untimely death in June 2020 left his fans heartbroken many of whom miss him till date. Even though the actor is no more he will always be loved and remembered for the mark he left on the silver screen. The actor equally loved to experiment with his looks and get into the shoes of the characters he portrayed onscreen.
To celebrate his birth anniversary, we go down memory lane and review the roles which he will always fondly be remembered by.
Sushant created a buzz in pulled-back hair and a moustache where he played the titular character in Detective Byomkesh Bakshyi. He looked unrecognisable in this look.
The actor put in so much effort with the look, mannerisms and style of cricketer MS Dhoni for the film MS Dhoni: The story untold, that it almost became hard for the audience to tell the two apart.
One of Sushant’s looks in Raabta required a warrior look. The look was intense and required him to wear eye make-up and hair sectioned into knots and braids with hair accessories and we must say he nailed the look.
He looked every bit a fierce and rugged dacoit in Sonchiriya. A messy hairstyle and beard ensured he looked his part. Sushant earned lots of praises for his performance.
A movie with a beautiful message, Sushant played the dual role of a young basketball player and later a concerned father in Chhichhore. The movie went on to become a cult hit.
In his last film Dil Bechara, the one with which his fans bid him a final goodbye and brought tears to the eyes of many, Sushant was his absolute talented and brilliant self as Manny.
