Arjun Bijlani, who is currently in Cape Town shooting for Khatron Ke Khiladi, shared some memories of his friend and former neighbour Sushant Singh Rajput, who passed away on June 14 last year. Speaking about their friendship, Arjun says, “Sushant was a happy-go-lucky guy. He was a good friend, because we stayed in the same building and discussed our projects regularly. In fact, I remember spending quality time with him either in his balcony or mine, discussing work and our aspirations. He would always tell me that trivial things never bothered him and that he would fight all odds to achieve his dreams. I remember the time when he had bagged the role in Kai Po Che!, and was all set to move from television to films. He was very excited.”

The two actors, who lived in the same building in Malad before Sushant moved to Bandra in 2016, bonded over their love for bikes. Arjun shares, “We both were very fond of bikes. One day, he surprised me by saying, ‘Arjun, come down, I want to show you something.’ When I went downstairs, I saw him on a fancy bike that he had bought. We both went for a ride after that. Those days were fun, since we were all living so close and sharing our lives. He would often play with my son Ayaan.”

Talking about missing Sushant, Arjun says, “I can’t recall when I met him last, but I do remember thinking of him on May 29 last year and messaging him, because I felt that he had disappeared and wanted to know about him. I sent him a text to connect, but never received any reply… I remember him as a very emotional and determined guy. A happy and talented guy like Sushant just disappeared from our lives. I pray that wherever he is, he is happy. We miss him a lot.”
