And after gaining much love and affection from his fans, he decided to turn towards the big screen.

The MS Dhoni: The Untold Story actor, is set to reunite with Ekta Kapoor and Abhishek Kapoor for an upcoming film.
According to reports, Sushant has bagged the lead role in an upcoming project which will be directed by Abhishek and produced by Ekta. The film is said to be titled KedarNath. Both the Kapoors also happen to be cousins. Isn’t the news exciting?
Sushant was initially expected to star in Ekta’s production Half Girlfriend, but he couldn’t take up the project due to prior work commitments. Now, if all goes well, Sushant and Ekta will collaborate on KedarNath.
Sushant and Abhishek too had a successful journey together, as the actor had received much critical acclaim as well as three Best Male Debut awards for his role in Kai Po Che!
