Bollywood filmmaker Abhishek Kapoor held a close bond with the late actor Sushant Singh Rajput. The duo was last seen working on Kedarnath which is known to be SSR’s second-last film which also starred Sara Ali Khan as the female lead.
Recently, the director shared a video of team ‘Kai Po Che’ (Sushant and Abhishek’s first collaboration) shooting the climax scene where the character of Sushant Singh Rajput dies.
Abhishek in his recently shared video pointed out how seeing Sushant Singh Rajput die repeatedly in films left him numb. The Firtoor director revealed he cried on multiple occasions and how he took the news of Sushant Singh Rajput’s death.
“Ep 6- the climax

Sushant Singh Rajput was known to be a visionary, a bright and curious mind and he achieved several milestones in his academics as he won the National Physics Olympiad and was a seventh rank holder in the All India Engineering Entrance Examination.
In his previous interview, director Abhishek Kapoor revealed that SSR was a troubled man whose mind was systematically dismantled by the industry. The Kedarnath director was one of the few people who attended late Sushant's funeral. He also planned to pay a special tribute to Sushant along with his wife Pragya Kapoor. The couple has decided to feed 3,400 impoverished families through her NGO, Ek Saath: The Earth Foundation, in loving memory of the late actor.
Sushant Singh Rajput was found dead at his Mumbai home on Sunday, at the age of 34.
