5 Books Sushant Singh Rajput Thinks Everyone Should Read

Sushant Singh Rajput!

You must have heard his name but you might not know that he is a bibliophile like us.

If his social media accounts are anything to go by, one can gauge that Sushant Singh Rajput is an avid reader and regularly posts profound thoughts, quotes, and poems over his Twitter and Instagram accounts.

The star has created a book club over Twitter that runs with the handle, @intoxillectual.

I just love him and before I go ahead, let me clear one thing that I’m not talking about his acting skills or his cricket skills. I’m talking about his intellectuality. See his posts on Instagram here and you’ll realize how perspicacious he is.

He scored 7th AIR in AIEEE and went to Delhi College of Engineering (now, Delhi Technical University) but dropped out in the 3rd year to pursue his dream i.e., Acting.

To pass his time, he loves solving maths.
He runs a social media book club.
He is a book geek as people working with him says he read books all the time, even on the sets.

“He once said that his first girlfriend dumped her because he is too boring”

Seems like he is of our league!

So, here are the 5 books that Sushant Singh Rajput thinks every should read:

This is ironic but ‘This Will Make You Smarter‘ will not make you smarter. But I can assure you that it leaves you with a lot to think about.

If you just ended a longtime relationship, every song you hear seems to be written about love. If you are having a baby, you start to see babies everywhere. Confirmation bias is seeing the world through a filter.” 

This book teaches us that we have no clue of why we act the way we do or choose the things we choose or think the thoughts we think and how to deal with the errors in our thinking.
