Rakshit Shetty’s College Life

Rakshit Had Crush On A Senior
Apparently, while in his first year of engineering course, Rakshit Shetty had crush on a senior in his college. Kirik Party's part of the story has been borrowed from that incident.
What Did Rakshit Shetty Say?
Rakshit Shetty said, "When I was in first year, I had crush on a senior in my college. I wrote Kirik Party's story based on the same lines. It is indeed inspired from the story of my college days. Ironically, when I was in my final year engineering, I had crush on a girl from first year."
How Did The Senior Die?
In the film Kirik Party, Sanvi dies as she falls from a building after getting drunk. But in reality, Rakshit Shetty's senior, whom he had a crush on, died by committing suicide.
How Did It Happen?
The Simple Star further said, "The senior whom I had crush on committed suicide. The previous day, she told me that she wanted to talk to me, but unfortunately that did not happen. I got to know about the news only after reaching the college on the next day. When I called up her father, he straight away disowned her. We used the same in our film's story too."
Reason For Suicide
The actor concluded by saying, "I do not know why she committed suicide. I would have probably known and stopped it had I talked to her the previous day. I still remember the arguments and fights that we had, when she was alive. Those can be seen in the film too."
