Taha Shah Badussha has been making waves for his intense performance in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Heeramandi. However, it wasn’t an easy journey for Taha who had to struggle for many years in the film industry despite making his debut alongside Shraddha Kapoor in Yash Raj Films’ Luv Ka The End. 

Taha, an outsider, revealed that many people messaged him, saying that his struggles to make it big in the industry reminded them of the late actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s journey.

During a recent interaction, Taha spoke about his memories of Sushant and how he hopes to take the late Bollywood star’s legacy forward. 

Speaking to Siddharth Kannan, Taha said, “I knew Sushant personally. I know how it is to come from outside. I would like to take his legacy forward. People have actually messaged me and told me that I am their new Sushant. How awesome is that? Because I know how much love the audience gave him. I just hope to live up to these expectations.”

Recalling one of his meetings with Sushant Singh Rajput, Taha shared, “He was a very philosophical and intelligent person. He would talk a lot about books, and I relate to him on that. I didn’t spend too much time with him; we talked only at events and parties. When I met him, we talked about NASA. We also talked about ‘Kai Po Che’ because I was being considered for Amit Sadh’s character in the film, but I ended up not getting it because of the age difference.”

Taha Shah Badussha played the role of Nawab Tajdar Baloch in the series. Heeramandi features Manisha Koirala, Sonakshi Sinha, Sanjeeda Shaikh, Aditi Rao Hydari, Richa Chadha, and Sharmin Segal in pivotal roles.
