Recently filmmaker Abhishek Kapoor's hit film 'Kai Po Che' clocked 8 years. The film marked the big Bollywood debut of late actor Sushant Singh Rajput. To this, the director shared an emotional BTS video featuring Sushant, Amit Sadh and Rajkummar Rao from the film set.
He further called them brothers for life and wrote, “8yrs of #kaipiche - brothers for life” “The bond, the friendship was real #8yearsofkaipoche #kaipoche @itsSSR @RajkummarRao @TheAmitSadh “ he added.

Earlier Kapoor had shared with Bombay Times, “I feel that you got to have a conviction in your story to do justice to it. There’s a certain intent with which you set out to make a movie, and before everything else comes your faith in what you’re out to say. I just happened to fall in love with the story.”
“Right from the word go, I was convinced that I needed to cast a set of friends and not a particular actor. Having a palpable, genuine equation between the characters was as important as their individual merit as an actor. So, the question was never about having new faces or stars, but rather to get the intricate chemistry between the boys right. I discovered the three boys together and didn’t really go about casting each of the characters individually. They were simply a great fit together as a team and had the right kind of energy that I envisioned for the respective parts” he explained.
Reminiscing memories of SSR, he added, “I’d never seen any of Sushant’s previous works before casting him. Back then, the industry wasn’t very accepting of television actors. But post Rock On!!, people had faith in me and I just went for it As for the efforts, there wasn’t any out-of-the-ordinary effort involved when it came to moulding Sushant. He was just fabulous right from the start and from the first day itself I knew we’re going to fly together.”
