A talented actor with a charming personality and an infectious smile, Sushant Singh Rajput bid an early adieu as he passed away on Sunday at age 34.
The late actor had some tremendous ambitions. In fact, on a fine day in September last year, Rajput documented a bucket list of 50 dreams that he wanted to achieve.
Sadly, they will remain unfulfilled.
From flying a plane to providing free education
In a series of tweets, Rajput shared his ambitions that included learning to fly a plane, acing the Morse code, planting a thousand trees, and also spending an evening at his Delhi college hostel.
He also wished to write a book, teach coding to the visually-impaired, raise a horse, work towards providing free education, work in Artificial Intelligence, and own a Lamborghini car.
Rajput wished to travel the world too
Clearly, Rajput loved traveling and exploring the world.
His list of ambitions also included attending a NASA workshop, swimming in a Cenote, spending a week in a jungle, and visiting Disneyland.
He also dreamed of visiting Antarctica, filming an active volcano, visiting the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), learning to surf, and traveling throughout Europe by train.
He had so much to do, so little time
An ardent lover of fitness and sports, Rajput also wrote about training for the Ironman triathlon, playing a cricket match left-handed, playing tennis with a champion, learning to do a four-clap push-up, playing poker with a champion, and building 6 pack abs in 6 months.
Here is one of Rajput's handwritten notes
