SUSHANT TO DON PRO­DUCER’S HAT

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page - Sneha Ma­hade­van

He’s def­i­nitely made the au­di­ence sit up and take note of his act­ing skills. And now, ac­tor Sushant Singh Ra­jput is now all set to turn pro­ducer.

How­ever, Sushant in­sists that his first pri­or­ity will al­ways be act­ing. “I have a team and we are cur­rently work­ing on sev­eral projects. Some of them are for dig­i­tal and some for TV. As of now, I don’t know if I’ll be in any of the shows, but if my pres­ence helps, then I’ll do that,” the ac­tor re­veals. He adds, “TV was al­ways a very pow­er­ful medium. It is just that we are very short of con­tent. It is also to do with the kind of au­di­ence for tele­vi­sion, so in that sense, it is not sym­bi­otic. I dream of mak­ing the big­gest stu­dio of the coun­try. The con­tent that I am de­vel­op­ing is more is­sue based and not in a very se­ri­ous kind of way. Some are also in­ter­ac­tive and in­for­ma­tive.”

Talk­ing about the fu­ture, he says, “I don’t ob­sess about the fu­ture but I do make plans. And ev­ery time I make them, they seem unattain­able and far-fetched. Six years ago, while study­ing in Delhi, when I told my friends I wanted to be a hero, they all laughed. When I told them I wanted to be a Yash Raj Hero, they laughed louder. I dropped out. My se­niors went on to do MBA and now, I’ve hired them to work with me.”

Since he started out in TV, would he be game to be a part of a re­al­ity show, like Bigg Boss? “Never. Why would I do the show? I am so con­scious of the cam­era that it will be im­pos­si­ble for me to be a part of such shows.” But he is will­ing to host shows. “A cou­ple of days ago, I was ap­proached for a show but I didn’t have the dates, but if I have time, then why not!” says Sushant.
