Say what! Did Sushant Singh Rajput just say he doesn’t believe in hard work?
Sushant Singh Rajput rose to fame with the popular TV serial ‘Pavitra Rishta’. With his dedication and hard work, Sushant has given many blockbuster movies including ‘Dhoni: The Untold Story’, ‘Kai Po Che’ and ‘Kedarnath’. And now, the actor is all set to attract his fans and audiences with his performance in the upcoming film ‘Sonchiriya’. Sushant is playing a dacoit in the film and if you have seen the trailer, you can surely say that he has done great job. However, the actor has had his own share of struggles and downers.
Talking about the film in an interview with DNA, Sushant Singh Rajput asserted that ‘Sonchiriya’ is set in Chambal, which hasn’t lost its identity and whatever evolution has come in the form of technology, that place has remained unaffected by it.
He further stated that director Abhishek Chaubey has done a fantastic job by adding layers to all the characters and he doesn’t find any reason why people shouldn’t be watching a film like this. Replying to a question, Sushant said, “I don’t define myself with norms at all. We start conversations with assumptions that we are talking to an actor. That’s also partly true because I’m selling my film. But I’m not just an actor. Acting is a part of my life. It’s necessary to see where we are heading in terms of career and life, but if you are successful and you don’t have the time to enjoy the benefits of being so, then what’s the point?”
The actor also noted that he is competitive in his own way and he doesn’t believe in working hard. “If you work hard, you will be hired to do just that all your life. I have plenty of things I like doing and acting happens to be one of them. I’m grateful for that because I have always loved performing. It never means that I don’t take it seriously. I pay attention and my intention is right but it’s just my liking, nothing else. I also believe all of us are terribly similar but remarkably unique at the same time,” he concluded.
‘Sonchiriya’ is set to release on March 1. The story of ‘Sonchiriya’ is set in the 1970s showcasing a small town ruled and dominated by dacoits. Multiple gangs fight happen over the struggle to attain power. The film stars Sushant Singh Rajput, Bhumi Pednekar, Manoj Bajpayee, Ranvir Shorey, and Ashutosh Rana in lead roles. ‘Sonchiriya’ presents the tale set in the era of dacoits.
