Some of the lesser known facts about Sushant are:
One of the finest students during his school days Sushant ranked 7th in AIEEE in 2003 and got admission in Delhi College of Engineering and even did Mechanical Engineering but later chose the glamour world.
He is often touted as another Shah Rukh Khan in Bollywood since he had no family relation in the glamour industry and made it big after being part of Indian TV. Sushant self-confessed he used to mimic King Khan during his school days to impress girls.
This genius lad was also the National Olympiad Winner in Physics. Sushant took martial art lessons from Allan Ami. He left Delhi Technological University (DTU) because of several backlogs as he rarely used to get time for studies after he started participating in theatre and dance.
Sushant has often mentioned how his mother meant the world to him. He was 16 years of age when his mom passed away in 2002 just before his 12th board exams. The ‘Kai Po Che’ actor recently took to Instagram to share an emotional letter that he dedicated to his mom. The handwritten letter has a beautiful poem that has been penned by Sushant. A few lines of the poem read, ‘You promised you would be with me forever, And I promised you I would keep smiling no matter what. It seems we both were wrong mother…’
