New Delhi: From Dibakar Banerjee, Rajkumar Hirani to now Neeraj Pandey, Sushant Singh Rajput’s filmography boasts of directors every actor yearns to work with and he feels his commitment for his job is what attracts these filmmakers towards him.
After a successful TV career, Sushant made his big screen debut with Abhishek Kapoor’s “Kai Po Che!” and his performance in the film bagged him a YRF project in the form of “Shuddh Desi Romance”.
His next two films were Hirani’s “PK” and Banerjee’s “Detective Byomkesh Bakshy!”, which is now set for a sequel with Sushant gearing up to reprise his role.
When asked how did he manage to earn the trust of such acclaimed filmmakers, Sushant said, “All these filmmakers are great not because they know their job well, it’s because they are curious to know how to go about it…
“Such people would want an actor who is curious, wants to learn and get involved in his job to a maddening level that he forgets everything else. And I am all that.”
The 30-year-old actor is now awaiting the release of Pandey’s “MS Dhoni: The Untold Story”, a biopic on Indian cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni. The trailer of the film, which released on Friday, got a thumbs-up from the fans, with many praising the way Sushant seemed to have emulated Dhoni’s mannerisms on and off the field. Sushant, however, is not nervous but says he is only interested to know the audience’s reaction.
“Whatever reaction I get, I will get used to it in a day.
So, I am not worried about that. Of course, I will feel nice if what I felt while making the film resonates with the audience. But as an actor my job is done. There’s no nervousness. I am just interested in knowing the reaction.
