<strong>Handsome! Hunk! Heartthrob! And Down-To-Earth!
These are the most likely feelings and emotions that one goes through when they see Sushant Singh Rajput; the rising star of Bollywood.The Shudh Desi Romance fame actor, was spotted at the on-going Amazon India Fashion Week to launch NOIR 45, a clothing collection inspired by his to be released movie- Detective Byomkesh Bakshy.
I got a chance to have a brief chat with him and trust me when I say it peeps… he is every bit of HANDSOMEEEEE that I have ever imagined him to be.
Here are the excerpts!
YCL: How has your journey been from being a model to an actor?
SSR: My journey from working as a TV actor to becoming a part of Bollywood has been amazing. It actually is true to the saying ‘living your dream.’
In my college days when I was in Delhi, I used to hang out with my friends and hang around in Connaught place. I would dream of becoming an actor someday, and now this is ACTUALLY happening! I’m here… I am living it and it’s unbelievable!
YC: And how did it all begun?
SSR: It all started to happen when I was in college. It’s during that period I started performing in college and did theatres which I think has helped me a lot in becoming a better actor. Initially I was a very shy person who would hardly speak to anyone. I used to find it very hard to express my emotions. But the moment I got into theatres and acting in college and started performing this art, I knew this is what I wanted to be.
YC: How was your experience with the perfectionist, Mr. Amir Khan in PK?
SSR: It was really good! Whoever I have worked with has been my idol… be it Rajkumar Hirani or Amir Khan. You get to learn so much from them and from their experience. Working with them has made me a better actor over the period of time.
YC: Moving away from acting, let’s talk about fashion for a bit. How about sharing your style statement with our readers?
SSR: I feel whatever you wear, you should feel comfortable in it and eventually you’ll end-up looking perfect. In my upcoming movie NOIR 43 we are wearing clothes inspired by the clothing during 1940’s, which in itself, is a very different feeling to endure and represent on screen. But, I think people would like the looks, as they are different and stylish.
YC: What are the 5 essentials that you always carry with you?
SSR: I always carry my phone, wallet, ipad, PSP and my shades.
YC:Tell us something about your upcoming movie “Detective Byomkesh Bakshy”?
SSR: Working in NOIR 43 was a very different experience. The story revolves around World War II and I think this script has brought out the best from me. Also I think I am looking really hot and sexy, (laughs), so all the girls out there should go and watch NOIR 43.
HOT! That he certainly is! And for the movie… well.. hope no girl faints in the cinema theatres.. but even if some of you do… anything for this hunk.. right?
