He was next Shahrukh Khan in making who also started his career in a small screen and the rest is history. But, in June 2020, Sushant shocked everyone by committing suicide (case is under investigation).

2. Shuddh Desi Romance (2013)

Another big cake in Sushant’s pocket from Yash Raj Films. The movie focuses on coming-of-age romance and live-in relationships of young couples. Rajput played a confused young man when it comes to commitments. After this movie, he became heartthrob among younger generations.

3. Detective Byomkesh Bakshy! (2015)

Another underrated gem from Yashraj Banner. Who remembers watching TV serial Byomkesh Bakshi in the 90s which was an instant hit and Rajit Kapur played the character of Indian-Bengali detective. This magic was recreated again on a big screen where Rajput played Byomkesh and he nailed it. If you have not watched it, then you should.
