After Kai Po Che, Sushant Singh Rajput starred in films like Shuddh Desi Romance, Detective Byomkesh Bakshy! and M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story, which released last year.
Sushant, who was critically acclaimed for playing the role of Indian cricketer M S Dhoni, told IANS: "I started acting because I wanted to play or act someone else. I am acting myself all the time, in life. That was getting a little boring. So, I started acting, and getting paid for it. That, I found interesting."
Sushant's next film is Raabta which is directed Dinesh Vijan and also stars Kriti Sanon. Of the film's plot, Sushant said: "The story has captured two eras. In one, I am playing a happy-go-lucky man who falls in love with a girl. And in the other part, I am playing the character of a warrior. The story is quite different and the characters don't have a reference point."
Watch the trailer of Raabta:
Raabta uses the theme of reincarnation but in reality Sushant doesn't believe in rebirth. "When I sleep for six to eight hours a day, I don't know who I am during that time. How can I recall who was I in my previous birth or if at all I was?"
Raabta releases on June 9.
