Highlights

  • "All I want is good work," said Sushant Singh Rajput
  • Sushant says that you look for little attention as a television actor
  • Sushant's next is Raabta with Kriti Sanon
Sushant Singh Rajput says that he's not "seduced" by money and fame and now the Raabta actor only wants "good work." Sushant told news agency IANS: "Obviously, when you are living in a small room sharing with six other boys, you want a proper house for yourself, a car so that you can get rid of the crowd of local train and public transport. Now, I have them all so, all I want is good work." Sushant worked in television show Pavitra Rishta and was later cast by Abhishek Kapoor in Kai Po Che. "There was a time when I used to go to shopping malls so that people would recognise me and ask for photographs and all. You know you look for little attention as a television actor, but now that seduction for money and fame has gone."
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.
