Sushant Singh Rajput’s home is the ultimate bachelor pad with its combination of robust colours and rugged finishes
A sneak-peek into Sushant Singh Rajput’s chic, urban Mumbai home
We all want our home to be a reflection of who we are, an extension of our dreams and ambitions, our safe landing. Actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s home is all of this and more. His house, located in a high-rise in Mumbai, is a collection of all his favourite things – be it the model Maserati on his shelf or the giant telescope looking out of a window in his living room.
“I remember when I was actually making a decision of getting this house, I was shooting for a movie in Budapest. And I saw the video there and decided to get the house,” says Sushant.
He calls his living room “the time travelling room” and a quick glance will tell you why. Artefacts from different time periods and locations hold their own in this space. Framed vintage photographs rest alongside hand-painted Bollywood movie posters in one corner while a barbuta finds place next to a state of the art Meade 600 telescope.
Sushant decided on buying the house by merely seeing a video of the space. He was on a shoot in Budapest and loved the house so much, he couldn’t wait to come back and start working on it.
From wanting to be an astronaut and a pilot to studying engineering and finally deciding on acting, Sushant was just any other kid with several ambitions. And his home is testament to all his childhood dreams and hopes, especially the home theatre, which he has lovingly decorated with all his inspirations – framed photographs of his visit to NASA (in uniform, no less!), model airplanes from his pilot phase and of course it is here that he spends hours binge-watching movies.
The home is summed up perfectly by Sushant, “It’s a mix of everything, a concoction of my thoughts.” So, take a cue from his home to pepper your space with everything you hold dear, after all, the home is where the heart is.
Look closely and you’ll find that most of the images that dot the wall behind the couch have some interesting history to them. Sushant calls his living room the “time travelling room” as each piece comes from a different time and period in history.
Sushant’s home is a stellar example of a man cave, complete with his best friend too – his adorable dog, Fudge. He admits that no matter how much he changes, Fudge still treats him the same.
In his own words Sushant “talks to the authors of the books” he reads. His study boasts a bright yellow table, which is his favourite colour. In fact, you’ll find a few stray books lying around in every room of Sushant’s house.
Sushant loves collecting pieces for his house – be it model airplanes, barbutas and even photographs on his several trips. It’s his way of jumping from the present to the past and the future.
You know Sushant loves his books, even the bookcase spells out his initials. It’s one of the ways he loves to spend time and his favourite genre just so happens to be science fiction.
Models of airplanes and cars are a common sight in Sushant’s house. As a child, he wanted to become an astronaut or a pilot. While his career may have taken a completely different route, he still harbours a soft spot for his childhood ambitions.
