Through a series of posts – so far dedicated to actors Nia Sharma, Ravi Dubey, Rithvik Dhanjani, Monica Dogra who were all from season8 of Khatron Ke Khiladi along with him, and Karan Singh Grover who did a special appearance role in the initial months of his debut show Dill Dostii Dance. Shantanu penned personalized notes for each of them, stating that he is taking the opportunity to appreciate those who aren’t close to him but have inspired him, also talking about his experiences with them and in what ways they inspired him!
When asked about what motivated him to pen down these posts Shantanu said, “The lockdown motivated me! I got a chance to introspect about a lot of things and look within me which took me back in time and got me thinking about the people who have made a difference in my life and have inspired me in some way or the other. I didn’t think of doing a series of posts, it just happened. Times are tough for everyone and it’s nice to appreciate someone, especially the ones that have made an impact in your life.”
Truly written from the heart, Shantanu has through these posts conveyed some lovely instances shared with each person, and how those instances and the person overall created a positive impact on him! His ‘Inspired Me’ posts have truly proved to be inspiring and a positive read in these tough times!
