Ever since his debut with Kai Po Che, Sushant Singh Rajput has made the audiences and critics sit up and take notice of his acting chops and screen presence. Though his last release, Chhichhore released with only a little pomp and show, it has stayed steady at the box office.
Chhichhore, despite facing tough competition from Dream Girl has won over the audiences. But despite the cut-throat competition in the industry, Sushant says he does not let the weekend results of his film decide his future.
Speaking to Mid-Day in a recent interview, the M.S Dhoni actor said, “I can’t segregate success on the basis of critical and commercial acclaim. I view it as a validation of my choices. I have been fortunate to play a variety of characters — some of them found success, others didn’t. But that doesn’t bother me. I can’t let one weekend of a film decide my future.”
While it is a newfound trend that an actor’s fame and popularity often resonate with his fees after every success. However, Sushant insists that he has never signed a film for anything except its script. The actor said, “I don’t negotiate. They pay me quite well. Since Kai Po Che [his debut film], there hasn’t been a single film that I have done for any reason other than a good script.”
On the professional front, the actor is currently basking in the glory of his last release, Chhichhore that also featured Shraddha Kapoor, Tahir Raj Bhasin, Varun Sharma and Pratik Babbar among others in pivotal roles.
