Sushant Singh Rajput’s first play photo goes viral, find out how he was discovered by Balaji Telefilms

A throwback picture of Sushant Singh Rajput is going viral on social media. In the picture, the late actor can be seen posing with the team from his first play. Suhant’s first play was titled Pukaar and was directed by Juuhi Babbar Sonii. The picture was first posted by Juuhi on June 14, on the day of Sushant demise. But it went viral online after being recently reshared.

Juuhi shared the photograph along with the caption, “I directed Sushant in 2 plays. In 2007 he acted in his first play, #PUKAAR & the other was a comedy,Dauda Dauda Bhaaga Bhaaga sa. Infact he was spotted by a Balaji casting person while he was handling the tickets at the box office counter for one of the plays.”

Juuhi also stated that even after Sushant made his place on the big screen, he was always one call away and would clear his schedule to make time for the theatrical events of the Ekjute theatre group. She added, “TV aur filmstar banney ke baad bhi apne theatre ke dino ke doston se juda raha. Aur mere toh ek call par hamesha, behad busy hone ke baavajood, #Ekjutetheatregroup ke shows aur events par pohoch jaata tha (Even after becoming a big star, he stayed connected with his friends from his theatre days. And if I ever called him, he would always show up for the events and shows of the Ekjute theatre group, despite being very busy).”

Juuhi recalled how Sushant used to call her ‘didi’ and always respected her as his first director. “Mujhe Didi bulaata tha..& hamesha bohot pyaar se kehta tha ‘didi u were my first director’. Sushant tumhe dekh kar hamesha kitni khushi hoti thi….yeh kya kiya mere bhai? Aur kyun kiya (He would call me didi and would always tell me with a lot of love, ‘Didi, you were my first director’. Sushant, I would always feel so happy to see you…what did you do, brother? And why)?” The post received lots of love from Sushant’s fans.

Meanwhile, Sushant’s last film, Dil Bechara, which is a licensed adaptation of John Green’s novel ‘The Fault In Our Stars’, will premiere on Disney+ Hotstar Today evening at 7.30 pm.
