Sushil had previously spoken of how disappointed he was, and said in a recent chat with The Times of India that he had lost his attention to academics because the media had been watching his life closely at the time.
Sushil said that after winning the show, the “media exhibition began to irritate him” because they were “too interested” in his personal life. “My behavior has also been influenced in some way. My decision was influenced by:What is the media?“(What will the media say?) Studying is something you do in peace. When I was exposed to the media, I couldn’t concentrate properly on studying because something always distracted me. It was constantly written about me. When the false stories were published, I had to clarify. It took 4-5 years, “he said.

Because of the same, my education receded into the background. ”At the time, he also mentioned that he had donated huge sums of money and was also deceived because many around him took advantage of his philanthropic nature.
