Swastika told about the first day she met Sushant at the costume trial of Dil Bechara. She said, “I told Sushant, ‘I think my stars are intertwined with you. Both the films in my career that are happening in Bollywood, big Bollywood films, so somehow I feel my stars are intertwined with you, Sushant.’ He had told me then that, ‘Swastika, just make sure that our stars are not faulty.’ Of course, we were laughing then. But now when I think of it, there are a lot of meanings that come out this line. I do remember him with lot of smiles.”


The actress also shared that Sushant used to call her with sweet nicknames. She added, “He always called me with the name Angoori (her character from Byomkesh). Sometimes Angoori Devi, sometimes Angoori, sometimes Angoori ji. I have hardly heard him call me Swastika,”

Describing Sushant as “flamboyant, lot of energy, and avid book reader,” Swastika mentioned about seeing his vanity van on the sets of the movie filled with books. “In his vanity van in Jamshedpur, I think there were more amount of books than costumes and makeup. When I walked inside his vanity, I was like, ‘Sushant tum toh yaha pura bookshelf barti karke rakhe ho.’ Books were staked and there were so many books on mathematics and astronomical,” she said.
