The God Tusi Great Ho director, who was a close friend of Sushant Singh Rajput, had earlier claimed that the late actor wanted to quit acting and start farming. “Sushant, who was battling depression for the past six months, told me that he didn’t wish to work in films. He wanted to quit acting. The ‘Raabta’ actor didn’t reveal the reason despite my constant questions. He often used to say that he wanted to do farming. Sometimes, he said, ‘I want to plant one lakh tree across the country and invent new things like a scientist’. He wished to invent something like a scientist,” Jafry said.
