||  About Sushant Singh Rajput  ||
[incase you haven't already memorized his whole life story]
On January 21, 1986, a naughty but sweet baby boy was born to the Rajput family hailing from Chandigarh.  They named him Sushant, meaning calm and satisfied, which became ironic as he developed into a jovial and ambitious personality.  Coming from a family of doctors and engineers, Sushant too was an intellectual, with fond memories of standing first in class 3.  He was loved and pampered by his family, being the youngest of five siblings with four sisters to indulge him, but tragedy struck in 2002.  His beloved mother passed away, leaving him distraught at the tender age of sixteen.  Although understandably emotional on that topic till date, Sushant put up a valiant face and topped the engineering entrance exams, and even ranked All India 7 on the scholarship exam.  He joined Delhi Engineering College in the chemical stream with his sights set on achieving the goals he was expected to meet since childhood.  Sushant's life took a turn when he watched a show by Shiamak Davar in Delhi and decided to join his dance troupe.  After seeing Sushant's hardwork and dedication, Shiamak offered him the opportunity to perform at not only many award shows, but also at the 2006 Commonwealth Games in Australia with Aishwarya Rai.  It was then that Sushant realized that his true passion was in the world of glamour, and upon returning to Delhi he joined a theatre class with Barry John.  Although he enjoyed opportunities brought to him through dance, his studies suffered and he flunked multiple times.  Before he was expelled from the college, he decided himself to leave to pursue his passion and in July 2007 moved out of Delhi.  His family was not very happy with the decision, but he went anyway, promising to return if his plans did not work out.
Sushant soon had no reason to return to Delhi, as he became busy in the center of India's glamour industry:  Mumbai.  His luck and work ethic took him far quickly, as he immediately joined up with some renowned names.  He danced with Ashley Lobo's troupe, learned martial arts from Allan and Amin, joined Nadira Babbar's theatre group, and assisted Mohit Suri during the making of Raaz 2.  It was in one of Nadira Babbar's plays for an NGO that Sushant was noticed by a production executive from Balaji Telefilms.  Although he was set upon flying to New York City to join the Film Academy and learn more about film direction, he decided to take up the opportunity given to him by Balaji.  Sushant debuted on television in March of 2008 in the role of Preet Juneja, brother of the main character on Star Plus' Kis Desh Mein Hai Meraa Dil.  He captured the hearts of many with his performance, and in June 2009 became the lead actor of Zee TV's Pavitra Rishta, also under the Balaji Telefilms banner, as the character of Manav Deshmukh.  Sushant has received much adulation and appreciation for his portrayal of Manav and is thankful for the chance to study a character so different from his own personality.  In May 2010 Sushant joined Star Plus' Zara Nach Ke Dikha, a dance reality show based on the theme of boys versus girls.  He was plagued by injuries and illnesses throughout the duration of the show, but still managed to turn out wonderful performances and gain even more adoring fans.  His interest in direction remained ever-present, as he decided to direct and act in three short films for national and international film festivals.  In December of 2010 Sushant joined Sony's famous dance show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa, based upon the British hit Strictly Come Dancing.  Thus far he has had a wonderful journey along with choreographer Shampa Sonthalia and has gained a multitude of new fans, including the one and only Madhuri Dixit.  Sushant is also a social activist who believes that people should help the world they live in by saving fuel and other valuable resources.  Along with that, Sushant dedicates time to help less fortunate children learn how to read and write while also giving them food.  On the personal front, Sushant remains happy partying with friends, going on long drives in the monsoons, savoring yummy food, and spending time with those whom he loves. 
Rather than simply hoping to achieve success and be famous, Sushant hopes to have the strength to work hard enough to deserve each and every bit of the success he reaches.  While his time on television lasts, he makes an effort everyday to perform better than the best.  Once his television career ends though, he plans to leave the small screen and finally complete selected courses at the New York Film Academy or perhaps the University of California at Los Angeles; afterward, he would like to return to India to assist directors, including Vishal Bhardwaj and Anurag Kashyap, and one day go on to become a renown director himself.  Whether Sushant's plans remain the same or change, the best wishes and prayers of his fans are with him so that he may reach great heights and attain success and happiness in anything he pursues. 
Impressed yet? 
If not (is that possible?), pilfer through some of Sushant's performances on Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa and prepare to be diagnosed with Sushant Obsession Syndrome, or at least develop a small appreciation for him and his hard work.

Shampa Sonthalia.  We admit to our first question:  who? 
Sushant's partner and choreographer, Shampa, wasn't a name known to most households before this season of Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa.  Intensive research made available the information that she works with ace choreographerand Master from Zee TV's super-hit Dance India Dance, Terence Lewis, and has assisted him in international teaching ventures as well.  DID Season 1 finalist Jai Kumar Nair noted that Shampa had choreographed some of his best acts on the show, which were truly spectacular performances admired by one and all.  Also, many recalled her acts alongside Terence from dance show Nachle Ve and spoke of her excellent dancing talent.
Yet, we wondered, how would she do with Sushant? 
Well, we are happy to say that Shampa has truly blown us away!  Her choreography is brilliant and she always works to bring out the best in Sushant by highlighting his talents, both learned and natural, along with giving him a medium to express his inclination toward direction and screenplays.  Regarded as one of the best choreographers of this season, we hope Shampa continues to impress us all by continuing to produce such beautiful performances.
