Sushant Singh Rajput is all set to play an astronaut in Sanjay Puran Singh’s next Chandamama Door Ke and the director asks people not to compare his film with the Hollywood movie Gravity.
“We can’t categorise this film with any other film and let’s not compare it with ‘Gravity’. It’s a very Indian film and let’s not compare it with any other Hollywood film,” said Singh. He also added that the “film is on the lines of 1968 released 2001: A Space Odyssey”.
“I can’t reveal the story but I can assure you that such an epic journey has never been shown on Indian celluloid before. It’s one of its kind,” he added. Chandamama Door Ke talks about India’s space program and its astronaut landing on the moon in 2017-18. Singh says Sushant has already begun his preparation for his character in the film.
“He has started the preparation for his character. It will be a different experience for the audience as well. As far as Sushant is concerned, he gives his 200 percent in each and every role. When I met him, I was damn impressed the way he has done his research work. I was amazed at his research and he had vast knowledge about the subject,” he added. The film will go on floors by mid-2017.
Meanwhile, Sushant Singh Rajput is prepping up for the release of Raabta, which also stars Kriti Sanon. The actor won accolades for his performance in Indian cricketer MS Dhoni’s biopic, MS Dhoni: The Untold Story. Sushant was rumored to begin shoot for Takadum, opposite Parineeti Chopra, however, the project has been shelved for the time being.
