Television actor Sushant Singh Rajput, who is best remembered as Manav from hit serial Pavitra Rishta, has got his first movie break in Kai Po Che, based on Chetan Bhagat's best selling novel The 3 Mistakes of My Life.
Sushant, a popular face on TV was last seen opposite his girlfriend Ankita Lokhande, in the last season of reality dance show Jhalak Dikhla Jaa.
The film is being produced by UTV and directed by Rock On's Abhishek Kapoor who returns to directing after a gap of three-and-half years. It follows the story of three friends based in the city of Ahmedabad.
Abhishek Kapoor has begun the shooting in the city but is yet to reveal the rest of the cast.
They are currently in Gujarat in a start-to-finish schedule for the film. Kapoor, who refused to talk about the cast, says, "We are shooting in Vadnagar, which is on the outskirts of Ahmedabad. We had some permission problems for shooting in Ahmedabad, so we chose this place which suits the novel's setting, he told Mid-Day.Com.
Chetan Bhagat recently posted an image which shows the character of Ishaan, who plays cricket.
Chetan Bhagat's two other novels, Five Point Someone and One Night @ the Call Center, have inspired films 3 Idiots and Hello respectively.
