Sushant Singh Rajput, the late actor, was known for his profound interest in science, particularly in Physics and astronomy. His passion for space led him to acquire one of the most advanced telescopes in the country, as per ANI. In the same conversation, Ranvir Shorey remembered how during the shoot of Sonchirya, there was a lunar eclipse for which the Kedarnath actor brought a telescope on set. Ranvir said, “He (Sushant) flew down his big telescope from Bombay just for that”.

Remembering Sushant’s love for astronomy, Ranvir added, “When we were shooting in Dholpur, there was a big telescope in the garden. He called everyone, drinks, you know, cocktails and snacks and all. And that's the only time I've actually looked through a telescope and seen it straight... There were three. Moon, Jupiter, Saturn lining up.” The actor further called the experience of a superior ‘quality’ and mentioned how watching the eclipse on screen could not come close to the experience of witnessing it live. 

Sushant passed away in June 2020 in Mumbai. He was found dead in his flat. The actor's death is currently being probed by the CBI.
