As per some stories from the sets of Kedarnath, Sushant was so dedicated to his performance that he converted a 100 paged script into a 300-page novel. He was so merged into the plot that he kept adding up his notes into the script. Sushant also worked hard for the scene. He used to carry Sara on his back while climbing the mountains and hilly areas. The death scene of Mansoor at the end of the movie left all eyes in tears.

Sushant’s last movie and the movie which got released after his death ‘ Dil Bechara’ holds much emotional significance. Based on the Novel ‘ Fault in Our Stars’ the movie was a tragic love story between Manny and Kizie played by Sushant Singh and Sanjana Sanghi. The movie was about cancer patient Kizie and cancer survivor Manny who fell in love while looking towards a life with a new perspective.
