Abhishek talked about Sushant’s dedication during the film Kai Po Che. He said, “I remember Sushant being very overweight when we auditioned him, and my condition to him was that I showed him a picture of an American actor and I said, ‘You got to look like this because you’re a cricketer.’ He wouldn’t say much. He was not a man of too many words. But in 3 months, he worked so hard and he would be there at six in the morning for cricket practice, the gym training and by the end of it, he looked like it.”

Abhishek Kapoor revealed his bond with Sushant Singh Rajput and his desire to have him star in Fitoor, a film that didn’t materialize; eventually, Sushant featured in Kedarnath instead.

“During the initial stages of the film’s production, Sushant was reportedly feeling helpless and isolated.  The biting cold of the Kedarnath location, where temperatures dipped to a bone-chilling 1-2 degrees Celsius, added to the challenging circumstances. Yet, Sushant led the way, demonstrating unwavering commitment to his craft. His dedication inspired his co-star, Sara Ali Khan, who followed suit.” Kapoor said
