Sushant Singh Rajput has been star gazing during coronavirus pandemic. On Friday, he posted a picture of Jupiter, Saturn and Mars in clear night sky. India is experiencing a rare upside to the lockdown: cleaner air and clearer skies. With pollution at an all-time low, people have been tweeting about spotting stars in the otherwise hazy skies.

Sharing the picture, Sushant wrote: “Jupiter, Saturn & Mars (top down) almost hugging each other in the moonlit sky #goodmorning.” In the picture, three planetary bodies can be seen aligned in one line. Filmmaker Ekta Kapoor reacted to the post and wrote “SushiLove”.

A number of Instagram users wrote in -- some to marvel at Sushant’s hobby while others had a bit of fun. One user said “they aren’t hugging one another, they are practicing social distancing”, while another said “why don’t u post daily for ur fans?” Another user joked “Kya taare gin raha h Bhai...sota nhi kya (why are you star gazing, don’t you ever sleep?). Yet another joked “Tell them to keep social distance”.


Sushant is fond of astronomy and reportedly has a telescope as well.

It’s a relevant film with a rather important message conveyed through an engaging narrative. Directed by Nitesh Tiwari of Dangal fame, Chhichhore is high on content and humour packaged so well that it stays with you for a very long time.” However, his Netflix release Drive failed to get a positive response.
