If his Instagram handle is anything to go by, one can gauge that Sushant Singh Rajput is an avid reader and regularly posts profound thoughts, quotes and poems on his social media account. In an attempt to further his love affair with the written word, the actor has created a book club over Twitter that runs with the handle — @intoxillectual.

“Sushant has taken this initiative in the spirit of encouraging dialogue and conversation among readers and also to establish an open platform to bibliophiles across the world. The actor had been mulling over this for a long time and thought the New Year as a fitting time to give his passion for books, an auspicious start,” adds a source close to the actor.

Says Sushant, “This book club is open to anyone interested. We will discuss which books should be read, a timeline to finish them, and then share the takeaways. People could come up with suggestions of other reads as well.”

Interestingly, the idea of coming up with a book club struck the actor when he was on a vacation with his friends in Europe and was quoting lines of one of his favourite books. Barely three-days-old, @intoxillectual has gained followers in thousands already. “I will handle it personally. It will see active participation and discussions by its members,” adds Sushant.
