Sushant Singh Rajput has made his Bollywood debut with ‘Kai Po Che!’ where he became a cricket fanatic, and now he has graduated to bring alive the most celebrated cricketer M.S. Dhoni over silver screen. Yet he says he never believed he could act. He said that those films occurred as a normal advancement from theatre and TV for him.
He credits his small screen for all the fame he has now. He said, ““Everything I learnt in theatre and on TV has been instrumental to what I am doing right now because I never knew I could act,” Sushant said. The 30-year-old star said that it was theater that first helped him to “gain the kind of confidence”.
“TV helped in understanding camera angles, close-ups, master shots and the how-to, when-to, how-much-to… and everything else I learnt like the lines and all,” he added.
He said when he was in front of the camera for the first time for a film, he was nervous. “I remember the first time I was facing the camera for a film was in ‘Kai Po Che!’, I was not very nervous. I was nervous obviously about a new project starting, but not about whether I was good enough for film or not.”
As of now, he is most excited for his new upcoming release by Neeraj Pandey, ‘M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story’, which is a film about India’s World Cup-winning captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni. The film is about to release on 30th September.
