When Sushant Singh Rajput talked about the one thing he had in common with Shah Rukh Khan

Sushant Singh Rajput had, many times in the past, confessed his love and admiration for Shah Rukh Khan. The late actor had also said that he is an actor because of Shah Rukh Khan. Now ahead of his first death anniversary on June 14, we bring you a part of his conversation where he had once talked about the one thing he had in common with Shah Rukh Khan. Even though the two come from humble beginnings, and dropped out of college to pursue acting, started in theatre, Sushant had shared the one thing that was special about them. When the actor was starting out from TV to films, his transition was seamless just like SRK. Both found their way into the industry without any Godfathers. Sushant was quoted as saying that when he started out, he used to forget that this was what SRK and he had in common but everyone around him would remind him that it was impossible to repeat history. Talking fondly about the actor, Sushant had said, 'Frankly, I’m an actor right now because of Shah Rukh. When I was in school and even when studying engineering, I used to watch his films. Shah Rukh’s name was and is synonymous with romance. Whenever we spoke to girls, we used to talk like him. When I was in the eighth standard, I would dance to ‘Suraj hua madham’. I have to achieve many things before I become even the ‘S’ of SRK.' Last year, Shah Rukh Khan had paid a tribute to Sushant in a special post after latter’s demise. He shared a photo with him and wrote, 'He loved me so much...I will miss him so much. His energy, enthusiasm and his full happy smile. May Allah bless his soul and my condolences to his near and dear ones. This is extremely sad....and so shocking!!'
