Playfully dubbed a young Hrithik Roshan for his penchant for speaking philosophically and his constant endeavour to improve himself and break new ground, Sushant Singh Rajput is on a self-reinvention trip. An outsider, so to speak, who started his journey by doing theatre and has made it big on his own in the industry, he is basking in the glory of his recent release M.S Dhoni: The Untold Story. This young actor is one of the most talented and brilliant actors of his generation.
His power packed performance as Dhoni is winning accolades for his gilt edged depiction of the cricketing legend, making him is one of the paramount reasons for the success of the film. The actor leaves no stone unturned to get into the skin of his character. He has reinvented himself time and again, with distinct and varied roles in each of his films. Remember, in his 2015 release, Byomkesh Bakshi, Sushant played Bengal’s most famous sleuth and earned immense praises for his striking performance.
With m.s. Dhoni: the untold story, Sushant showcased an exemplary depiction of the cricket sensation. Sushant has gone to extreme lengths to prepare for this role. The actor had undergone hours of cricket practice as well as watching Dhoni’s style of playing. It was seen that the actor had perfected Dhoni’s famous helicopter shot, as he hit the ball in the same fashion that the Indian skipper is famous for.
Apart from cricketing skills, the most difficult task at Sushant’s hand was to emote caption cool by understanding Dhoni’s mindset. What does Dhoni thinks when he is on field, how does he feel when he wins a match or loses one, how does tackle pressure, he had to understand Dhoni’s temperament, for which he put in alot of hardwork, the results of which were evident.
Now for his upcoming movies, Sushant will be reinventing himself, yet again.He will be slipping into the character of a boy-next-door in Dinesh Vijan’s rom-com Raabta, opposite Kriti Sanon. Raabta, which is extensively shot in Budapest, Mauritius and Punjab, is a love story based on dreams and destiny. The film also has some high octane action sequences, which Sushant shot himself.
For Homi Adajania’s Takadum, on the other hand, the actor has learnt to play the guitar. Sushant is playing a singer in the film and shared a video on Twitter where we see him playing a guitar. From the video we can say that he does not seem to be a newbie and can definitely play. The actor has been dedicating a few hours daily to learn the instrument.
