These things prove that Sushant Singh Rajput is a true risk-taker
Moving out of YRF
Production house YRF gave two biggest hits of Sushant's career 'Shuddh Desi Romance' and 'Detective Byomkesh Bakshy'. The actor had a three film deal with YRF, and the third one was 'Paani'. But at the end moment, YRF backed out of 'Paani', leaving the project in a fix. Sushant had already opted out of so many films including 'Fitoor' and 'Ram-Leela' for 'Paani', and hence, he felt offended when YRF ditched 'Paani'. But apparently, things went sour when 'Befikre' fell in Ranveer Singh's kitty. Sushant decided to opt out of YRF contract then. YRF is one of the biggest production houses in India and having a fallout with them could have had negative implications. But he did feel offended and hence, broke his association with them. A move that a few films old actor would not risk taking.
Rejecting films for 'Paani'
We all know about Shekhar Kapur's film 'Paani' that never saw light of day. Sushant rejected almost 6 films for this one. Now, that needs guts. Unfortunately, 'Paani' did not happen, but he stood by his word.
Going the unconventional way!
After 'Kai Po Che!', Sushant featured in a rom-com 'Shudh Desi Romance' and was appreciated for his performance. He created a boy-next-door image for himself and it was good enough to keep him in the limelight. But at the next instance, instead of going the conventional way and maintaining his image, he picked up a challenging role for the movie 'Detective Byomkesh Bakshy'. We did not expect him to take up this risk as there were high chances that the film may not work, but he proved everyone wrong.
The major jump!
Sushant shot to fame with his stint in television serial 'Pavitra Rishta'. He essayed the role of lead protagonist Manav and was loved by all. And when his stardom as a television star reached its peek, Sushant risked his fame, and decided to quit TV. 'Kai Po Che!' fell in his kitty and the rest is history.
When he gave up on engineering!
Sushant Singh Rajput was a bright student. He was good in academics, so much that he won the National Olympiad in physics while in school. Hence, he chose engineering and wanted to become a Mechanical Engineer. But destiny had its own plans. Within three years in engineering, Sushant realised that he wants to be an actor. Ultimately he took the risk to drop out of engineering and pursue his dreams. A decision well made!
