Sushant Singh Rajput won hearts with his stellar performance in Kai Po Che!. But the actor says that he has still a long way to go and a lot to learn – from actor Irrfan Khan. Yes! The actor is apparently a huge fan of the actor who is one of the most versatile actors the industry has seen.
Irrfan Khan’s variety of roles and ability to project himself in front of the camera with such ease has seemingly impressed Sushant. A source close to the actor says,”Sushant feels that Irrfan is one of the finest actors in the industry and that he can learn a lot from him about acting and projecting yourself in front of the camera. He has watched many of Irrfan’s films and believes that he has a strong screen presence —
something he would like to achieve too.”
The Kai Po Che! actor is full of praise for the actor and says,”He is one of the finest actors I have seen. He inspires me and I learn so much just by observing his performances. He is truly magical.”
However, the praise is not one sided. Irrfan Khan was generous in his praise for Sushant and he mentioned,”Sushant has a unique mix of charm, intensity and talent.”
The success of Kai Po Che! has turned the cards for this actor as he has bagged roles in a few noteworthy productions. He’s currently juggling shoots for Rajkumar Hirani’s P.K., which stars Aamir Khan, Anushka Sharma and Sanjay Dutt, with a Yash Raj Film directed by Maneesh Sharma. In the latter, he’s paired with Parineeti Chopra.
While there is a buzz that he has rejected an offer to work with Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions and Sanjay Leela Bhansali, his spokesperson refuted such rumours and said,”So far, he has not been contacted by either. They are huge names in the industry, so if he was approached, why would he decline such good offers?”. True!
It is interesting to see that Bollywood is welcoming young talent with open hands while the audience are accepting the change too. Since the past year, several new faces have emerged and have successfully made a mark as well! We wish Sushant Singh Rajput has a flourishing career ahead!
