Now, his brother-in-law, OP Singh, who’s the Police Commissioner in Faridabad, has penned a memoir for the actor superbly narrating his journey. It begins with Singh narrating the incident when he first obtained to witness the showman in Sushant. “Sushant was a set of sensible traits. He had the braveness to imagine that one thing as elusive as film stardom in a fluid business like Hindi cinema is an achievable consequence. He had the center to go get it. His spectacular marketing campaign was nothing lower than scaling Mt Everest bare-footed. The reward was a way of accomplishment that para-droppers can by no means expertise. He was a simple showman. The first time I had a glimpse of it was on 24 May 1995. Wearing darkish shades and knotted handkerchief as neck-over, he was setting the stage on fireplace. He was barely ten years then, and the well-known quantity was “tu cheez badi hai mast mast”. The ambiance was electrical. The event was my marriage to his sister, twelve years forward of him. I immediately knew that he was not bizarre.” 

Singh, in the memoir, as reported by Bollywood life, then narrates how for the following seven years Sushant was his sister’s brother. “Bogged in a taxing job that consumed almost all my energy and time, I did notice his natural flair to entertain in family get-togethers. He loved Urdu couplets and loved even more wah-wah that he so effortlessly harvested. A grade-conscious student and a razor-sharp mind, the first time he came over to my place was in the year 1999,” he wrote. 

He then talked about how Sushant had reached their house “bare-footed and empty-handed, grinning ear-to-ear” though he was accompanied by a police commando. 

He additionally talked concerning the actor’s love for vehicles and the way “one fine morning, he sped away with the one in the garage. I learned about it when somebody told me that he had bumped the car into a roundabout.”

Further, speaking concerning the time when Sushant misplaced his mom, Singh wrote, “Then came year 2002. He lost his mother who he loved so dearly. It left him stunned and inconsolable. Turning his eyes away from the body, he hesitated for a while for the last rites. A child’s mind could not think of consigning a body, that he adored as his mother only a couple of hours ago, to flames. But he quickly gathered himself. His usual butter-face turned steely as he calmly lit the pyre. For weeks, his grins disappeared. Couplets for all reasons and seasons stopped coming forth. The very purpose of his life – to make his mother feel proud of him one day – seemed to have evaporated.” 

Singh then talked concerning the time when Sushant obtained into an engineering faculty. “He sailed through ragging famously, charming his determined tormentors with his trademark grin and wowing them with his fluid dancing moves. For fun, he gave home tuitions too. To avoid unwarranted attention from his wards, he sported loose-fitting kurta and thick-frame glasses and oiled his thick hairs profusely,” he wrote. 


He then talked concerning the time when Sushant was prepping himself to enter the movie business and talked briefly about his journey. Singh concluded the memoir by writing, “We, in the family, see him as a warrior prince. He fought bravely. He won famously. In the process, he suffered battle injuries that turned out to be fatal. We love him, so we miss him unbearably. But as a family that believes in value-creation and problem-solving, we assure him that the pursuit of excellence will continue. We see him in the league of Bruce Lee. Living short but making it large!”
