Sushant Singh Rajput who is popularly known for his role of Manav in Pavitra Rishta, made his Bollywood debut with Abhishek Kapoor’s ‘Kai Po Che!’ A few films later, he entered the Rs 100-crore league with a fine performance in his last release, MS Dhoni: The Untold Story, which was among the biggest hits of last year.
Since then, there were speculations stating success has gone into the actor’s head. There were many gossips doing rounds about the actor’s attitude. He is often been accused of being arrogant.
Talking to mid-day when he was asked about the same, he said while most humans have the tendency to somewhat lose their mind following success, for him nothing has changed. “I am a middle-class boy and didn’t find success easily. I had always been acknowledged for my performances, but with Dhoni (biopic), I tasted success at the box office as well. The film earned a lot of money, but everything didn’t come to my pocket.”
“Now [post Dhoni’s success], if I am doing the same 10 things in my personal life that I did earlier, people will have problems with at least two of them. They will have a long discussion on my arrogance based on my body language or the way I speak to a journalist. But I am still the same person.” he added.
“When I was doing TV, I reached a point where I didn’t have to think about money. Even right now, I don’t think about it. You can take away all the money and glory, and I will still perform. In fact, I am willing to pay and perform. Fame and money cannot change me. I got myself a nice house and my dream car, but that doesn’t make me any different from the rest in the business. So I want to know what reason can I give myself to be arrogant?” he concluded.
On the work front, the handsome hunk is now gearing up for ‘Raabta’ in which he’ll be sharing screen space with his rumoured girlfriend Kriti Sanon. ‘Raabta’ directed by Dinesh Vijan is all set to release on June 9.
