A QUICK look at Sushant Singh Ra­jput’s ap­pear­ances and you’ll no­tice how the ac­tor favours T-shirts with quirky cap­tions. Turns out, dur­ing the shoot of the of the first sched­ule of Nitesh Ti­wari’s Ch­hich­hore that was be­ing shot at the New Zealand Hos­tel in Kharghar, the ac­tor picked up sev­eral tees from the stu­dents on the cam­pus to add to his per­sonal wardrobe.

A unit mem­ber from the Ch­hich­hore sets re­veals, “While we were shoot­ing at the New Zealand Hos­tel, a bunch of stu­dents came to wit­ness the shoot. One of the guys was wear­ing an Avengers T-shirt that caught Sushant’s at­ten­tion. He went up to the boy and en­quired about it. While the stu­dent was ini­tially sur­prised that a star was in­ter­ested in a ba­sic T-shirt, he was happy to gift it to the ac­tor. In the course of the shoot, Sushant col­lected over 20 such tees from stu­dents, in­clud­ing one from the unit’s sec­ond AD Karan Mody.”

Laugh­ing about the odd quirk he has de­vel­oped, Ra­jput says, “It’s an im­pul­sive trait. Usu­ally, I would ask the stu­dents where they got it from so that I too could buy it. But most of the time, see­ing my ex­cite­ment, they would ask me if I wanted it. And I would go, ‘Yes, even if it’s not washed, I love it’.” He adds that his per­sonal col­lec­tion boasts of ap­par­els with life mus­ings on them. “Stat­ing the truth is bor­ing. But putting a quirky quote re­lated to the truth on a tee is a great way to own an idea.”
