Kabhi socha nahi tha jo har din chaand taaron ki baat karta tha, woh ek din khud chaand taaron se baat karne chala jayega. Kabhi socha nahi tha jise dekh kar kaiyon ne sapne dekha, ek din use dekh paana sapna ban jayega. Sushant aaj aapko yaad kar raha hai aapki kutumb ka har rishta. kyunki yeh aapka aur humara rishta sirf pavitra nahi, amar rishta hai. Maine kabhi nahin socha tha ki yeh din aayega, aur main yeh sab bolungi. We miss you Sushant, we miss you. Thank you."
