Filmmaker Abhishek Kapoor had a special relationship with Sushant Singh Rajput. Kapoor launched Sushant in his first film Kai Po Che. Kapoor and Sushant also collaborated together for the film Kedarnath which was based on a natural disaster. Now in a recent interview Abhishek has described Sushant as a unique gem and someone who needed gentleness and care.
Speaking in the web show Enquiry Abhishek said, "I kept telling Sushant, you're already a star, don't expect others to validate that for you. It's really unfortunate, he kept seeking a validation he could not get."
He added saying,"Don't discredit the outsiders. Celebration of an artiste is oxygen for him, he will die if you don't celebrate him."
Abhishek Kapoor also recalled the last time he spoke to Sushant. He said, "I had not spoken to him for about a year and a half. There were times, you talk and then you'd go away to do a film. He must have changed his number 50 times and I remember when Kedarnath was coming out, the media had just slammed it. I don't know what happened, he could see that he was not getting the kind of love because everything was centered around Sara (Ali Khan) that time. He was just kind of lost. When the film released and it did really well, I sent him a message."
"Sometimes I used to think I should call him but then I used to think when he calls me, I'll get a hold of him. He never called, " he concluded.
