Bollywood actor Sushant passed away at the age of 34 in 2020, leaving millions of his fans heartbroken. On his 4th death anniversary, let's take a look back at five of the iconic roles he played onscreen:

1. Mahendra Singh Dhoni from MS Dhoni: The Untold Story

Sushant Singh Rajput won many hearts with his spectacular performance as Mahendra Singh Dhoni in the biopic. Many left spellbound, some were even confused about whether they watched Sushant or Dhoni on screen, clearly proving what a great actor Sushant was. From Dhoni's walk to the way he talks, Sushant took note of everything and that was beautifully depicted in the film.

2. Mansoor Khan from Kedarnath

Sushant Singh Rajput brought magic on screen with his portrayal of 'Mansoor' in the heart-wrenching love story. His innocence and nobility made it easier for the audience to fall in love with him. The movie that marked Sara Ali Khan's Bollywood debut was an inter-faith love story set around the tragic and infamous Kedarnath floods and landslides that took the lives of many in 2013.

3. Sarfaraz Yusuf from PK

Even though Sushant appeared in the movie for a brief while only, his role in the film was an impactful one. Sushant played a Pakistani boy Sarfaraz who falls in love with an Indian girl Jaggu (played by Anushka Sharma). People fell in love with his charm and critics praised him for his honesty and simplicity on screen.

4. Ishan Bhatt from Kai Po Che

Sushant transitioned from a TV Actor to a Bollywood star with Kai Po Che. He played the role of failed cricketer who was obsessed with the sport and ended up becoming a coach. Co-starring alongside Rajkummar Rao and Amit Sadh, Sushant aced his part and gave the industry the best debut performance that year.

5. Aniruddh Pathak from Chhichhore

Sushant delivered another splendid performance in Chhichhore which turned out to be a huge box office hit. Touted to be his best performance, Sushant swiftered through different shades of his character Aniruddh Pathak, an engineering graduate battling divorce whose world comes crashing when his only son tries to commit suicide after failing an engineering entrance exam. Oscillating between a colourful past and tensed present, Sushant showcased a plethora of emotions throughout the film and won millions of hearts!
