Kriti Sanon birthday special: Celebrating her amazing friendship with Sushant
Finding someone who matches your frequency is crucial for surviving in the entertainment industry. For Kriti Sanon, Sushant Singh Rajput seemed to be one such person. Having co-starred in Dinesh Vijan's Raabta, the two were known to share a close bond, and were even rumored to be dating several times. With the Mimi actress turning 31 today, let's trace her friendship with Rajput.
When Delhi talks and engineering brought them closer
Rajput had once told the media that their similarities had brought them close. Not only they had "similar passions" when it came to films, both the actors often bonded on Delhi talks and engineering. "She's an engineer and I was studying to be one too before I dropped out. We're both from Delhi, big foodies, and like spending time together," he had added.
When the actors tackled dating rumors with utmost grace
They were repeatedly rumored to have been dating. The speculations gained pace when the late actor was photographed taking Sanon out on a drive in his new Maserati. But both of them had reacted to this buzz most gracefully. "I'd taken the car out for a spin alone the day it was delivered. Nobody clicked any pictures then," the Pavitra Rishta actor had joked.
'I'm fond of him and we are really good friends'
Calling the dating rumors "daily soap," Sanon had cleared her stance, saying, "I'm fond of him and we are really good friends. It's always going to be like that." It has been years since then, so it's time we normalize friendship between men and women!
When Sanon grieved Rajput's sudden death on her own terms
When Rajput passed away in June 2020, the 31-year-old didn't jump on the bandwagon. She didn't post "RIP" messages online, but instead grieved on her own terms. Talking about the reason, she'd said, "There was too much negativity around. I didn't want to be a part of that." "I knew what I felt about the situation and I wanted to keep that to myself."
Sanon had collectively expressed her thoughts in a long note
When Sanon remembered Rajput on fourth anniversary of 'Raabta'
"It has broken me," Sanon had written on losing Rajput back in 2020. Remembering her friend a year later, the actress was sure that their "raabta" (connection) was "meant to be." To give context, the Luka Chuppi star was celebrating the fourth anniversary of their movie Raabta. "Little did I know that it would be our first and last," Sanon had heartbreakingly noted.
