Chanda Mama Ke Door Ke is a space adventure film directed by Sanjay Puran Singh Chauhan and also stars Nawazzudin Siddiqui and R Madhavan in pivotal roles. In the words of the director of the film, the project is special for the entire cast since the subject of the film is something which has never been explored before. Also, he hinted on Sushant donning a never-seen before avatar for the film.
Earlier in an interview with indianexpress.com, Sushant talked about him visiting NASA to do justice to the role in his upcoming film. “I am a science student. All the theories I have heard or thought about it, they were concepts in my mind. will be visiting NASA and get an idea about the training that individuals undergo to become astronauts. I will be sitting in a comet and experience 1/6th of my weight on the moon. I am over the moon right now for an experience,” quipped Sushant.
Raabta, the last big screen outing of Sushant along with his alleged girlfriend, Kriti Sanon tanked at the box office. This makes it very crucial for the actor to deliver a hit soon.
