I’m in talks for 12 films; I don’t know which of them will begin first: Sushant Singh Rajput


Sushant Singh Rajput is having the time of his life after the release of his film Kedarnath and looks like the actor is spoilt for choices. He has already got films like Sonchiriya, Kizie Aur Manny, Drive and Chhichhore in his kitty and is in talks with the filmmakers of 12 different films currently. In a recent interview with a leading daily, he spoke about his choice of films and what prompts him to sign on the dotted line.

He said, “I’m in talks for 12 films, I don’t know which of them will begin first, but the two films you mentioned (Chanda Mama Door Ke and a biopic on Paralympian Murlikant Petkar) are still in the pipeline. It’s for me to decide what to do next and that would depend on how my next film fares. There is no film that I want to do that I can’t do.”

The actor also explained that it is not always about being an actor or a star and added that he has found a third more viable option. He said, “The choice is usually between being an actor or a star, but I have figured out a third option, which is just doing good films without being described as an actor, a star or an engineering dropout. These are but small nouns that stop me from looking at the big picture”.

Apart from speaking about himself and the accolades that he earned for Kedarnath he also spoke about his former girlfriend Ankita Lokhande who is making her Bollywood debut in Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi. He said that the film looks great and is tracking well and he hopes that it does well for everyone involved.
