Actor Sushant Singh, widely recognized for his impactful roles in movies like “Satya,” “Jungle,” and “Dum,” as well as his notable presence as the presenter of the popular television show “Savdhaan India,” has never shied away from expressing his views on social and political matters. Sushant’s involvement in public affairs and his perspective on politics, including his opinion about Rahul Gandhi and the “Bharat Jodo Yatra,” have piqued the curiosity of his fans and followers.
Recently, Sushant appeared on Jay-Ho! The Jay Kumar Show, where he candidly delved into his journey of social consciousness and the evolution of his political views.
Acknowledging the undeniable influence of politics in all aspects of life, Sushant expressed, “I am not apolitical; in fact, nobody truly is. Politics governs everything around us, whether it’s the cost of our homes, the price of the bread we eat, or the fuel we put in our cars. I am drawn towards social causes because I believe that when one has the power to make a positive impact on society, regardless of how they acquired that position, why not use their voice?” Driven by a desire to make a difference, Sushant embraced the idea of supporting endeavors aimed at uplifting the marginalized and improving public welfare.

Regarding the rumors of his joining the Congress Party, Sushant clarified that they were merely speculative. However, he remained open to the idea of participating in elections or engaging in active politics in the future. Nonetheless, he expressed his reluctance to align himself with major political parties due to the constraints they impose on individual ideologies. Sushant values his outspoken nature and the freedom to voice his opinions for causes he believes in, irrespective of the ruling party. He stressed the significance of supporting righteous causes, irrespective of political affiliations, and pledged to raise his voice whenever policies or actions were detrimental to public welfare.
In November of the previous year, Sushant joined Rahul Gandhi’s “Bharat Jodo Yatra.” Reflecting on his decision, he shared, “When Rahul Gandhi initiated the Bharat Jodo Yatra, it immediately caught my attention. The movement aimed to bridge gaps and foster love and unity across party lines. I received an invitation from the Youth Congress in Mumbai to participate in the yatra. At first, I had reservations about actively joining a political party’s rally. However, upon learning that the invitation was open to individuals from all political backgrounds, I decided to go and experience it firsthand.”
Sushant walked alongside Rahul Gandhi, engaging in conversations and witnessing the people’s response. He observed that the crowd comprised not only Congress party supporters but also individuals from diverse political affiliations who wanted to share their grievances and problems with Rahul Gandhi. Sushant was struck by the genuine enthusiasm and connection between the people and Rahul Gandhi.
Participating in the Bharat Jodo Yatra became a transformative moment for Sushant. He remarked, “It was an incredibly inspiring experience, not just because Rahul Gandhi led the yatra or received such a positive response. What truly moved me was witnessing a leader genuinely concerned about the issues faced by our country and its people, which I, too, am passionate about. As I walked alongside fellow citizens, I realized that I was not alone in desiring change. Unemployment and inflation are pressing concerns for our nation, and every common man want a change. Rahul Gandhi’s efforts to address these challenges energized me. It was a turning point, and my opinion of him as a politician has since evolved. He has undoubtedly matured.”
