Filmmaker Abhishek Kapoor claims Sushant Singh Rajput was disturbed during ‘Kedarnath’ shoot

Sushant Singh Rajput worked with director Abhishek Kapoor on movies such as Kai Po Che and Kedarnath. Recalling his time with Sushant, Kapoor said in a recent interview that the actor was “disturbed” during the filming of their 2018 film Kedarnath.

In a recent chat with Siddharth Kanan, the filmmaker talked about his strong connection with Sushant and his early plans to cast him in ‘Fitoor.’ In any case, the project did not materialize with Sushant, therefore he was cast in ‘Kedarnath’ instead.

Abhishek also mentioned how Sara Ali Khan was inspired by Sushant’s willingness to shoot in freezing conditions. “Sushant led the way. He did it first and the next day Sara saw him doing it and she also realized that okay if this guy is doing it, I will also do. That’s what drove her to do it.”

Sushant seemed “isolated and helpless,” stated Kapoor, who also said that the actor was “disturbed” during Kedarnath’s shoot. He added, “He was a bit disturbed in those days. He was a very strong guy mentally and physically he could take on anything. He was a great guy. I think he was finding himself to be very isolated and quite helpless. He was drifting away.”

Kedarnath, a romantic drama released in 2018, was based on the tragic 2013 floods in North India.
