Somebody has rightly said we realize the worth of a person after we’ve lost them. In hindsight, we recount the numerous missed opportunities of extending love for their work, humanitarian initiative, genius mind and exceptionally cute smile. But it is more saddening that the person will never be able to know about the enormous amount of outpouring love and appreciation for them. One such personality is Sushant Singh Rajput. Sushant Singh Rajput lived an extraordinary life — just like some of the exceptional characters he played in his Bollywood films. Coming from a humble background to reaching the heights of stardom, Sushant will forever be remembered in history. His story inspired the ambitions of young actors in small towns — it’s why many of his fans took his death as a personal loss.
Here are some astonishing achievements and coding. Had a dream to teach coding to blind children.

I am moved at the kind gesture made by @itsSSR and his team towards #NagalandFloods and willingness to help #Nagaland at this crucial hour.

- SSR a space enthusiast: Owned a Meade LX600 telescope which is regarded as one of the most expensive telescopes in the world. He bought it to watch rings of Saturn.
Rajput was deeply invested in astrophysics. Fascinating factoids about planets, distant galaxies and farther reaches of the universe filled Rajput’s social media feeds.
- SSR an Entrepreneur: Wanted to work in Advanced Technology for future generations.
Sushant Singh Rajput started his entrepreneurial journey in May 2018 when he joined the board of a tech start-up, Innsaei Ventures Private Limited as an additional director. The Gurugram-based tech start-up worked on virtual reality and looked to technology by engaging with artistes and creating new digital content.
Coming from a tech background, Rajput was excited to use the new technology in the entertainment industry. “Artificial intelligence mixed with mixed reality (virtual and augmented) will Change the entertainment and its present industry (with key players/markers) as we know and understand it, and in under 5years. The future is already here, just unevenly distributed. Thinking that exponential technologies will match our linear way of predictive Analytics could be 100 times more catastrophic than the last mistake we made with the coming of sound in the last century.” he wrote in a Facebook post in December 2018.
- SSR a budding Coder: Once he was seen wearing a red t-shirt with a mathematical equation. When people decoded it, it was found the true meaning of the equation.
