Sushant Singh Rajput Quote: The more I learn about things, I realize how wrong I was before.

“The more I learn about things, I realize how wrong I was before.” Sushant Singh Rajput

Sushant Singh Rajput – FULL TRANSCRIPT:

“I had this habit of carrying chits in colleges.

Well, before we get going, I have a confession to make. I became an actor because I had a problem. I was an introvert. You know, I’m the youngest in my family. And I was so pampered in my house that when I used to step out, I didn’t know how to deal with people. So, I gradually became this very shy, introverted kid who could not talk. Well, I still cannot talk. And I have stage fright. So, in case, so what I do generally as an actor is I hide behind all these fascinating characters, and then I’m confident. But, like right now as I’m not acting, so… I will screw it up. So, excuse me if I falter. Excuse me if I don’t make sense. Excuse me if I get a panic attack right now. But I will try my best.

We love you anyway.

Alright. I would love to share my journey with you, my learnings, and in case you decide to drop out and join me in Bollywood, it will come very handy. So, I was thinking in the car, what do I talk about? What can I tell you that you already don’t know? I’m assuming, and I think most probably, you guys are way much smarter and better than what I was when I was your age. You know, you already know about the cut-throat competition, you know the importance of hard work, perseverance, and vision, focus, self-belief, etc., etc. So, I don’t need to talk about that.

But after deep thinking, I zeroed down into two things that I can actually discuss about. These two things talk about chasing your dreams and actually living your dreams, which unfortunately nobody mentioned to me when I was starting out. And those two things are, can I write them, can you see enough words? Alright, so yeah, so those two things are the biggest lie and the only truth about success that I was told about.

Now the biggest lie was money plus recognition is equal to happiness, is equal to success. So, let me begin by mentioning that I come from a very middle-class family. And when I was growing up, money was a big, big, big differentiator in my life. Also, in the three generations of my family that I know of, that are documented, nobody knew what fame felt like. So, basically, both money and recognition were missing when I started out. So, I already started out as a failure, let me be very precise.
