Be­fore mak­ing it big, Sushant sold peanuts just to ‘see hot girls’

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

When Sushant Singh Ra­jput (left) started his jour­ney in show­biz as a dancer un­der chore­og­ra­pher Shia­mak Davar’s troupe, it was just to see “hot girls”, but he ended up get­ting life lessons there.

On a chat show, the ac­tor was asked how an en­gi­neer­ing stu­dent like him landed up in a dance class. He said: “You will be shocked to hear the story. I used to sell peanuts along with my friends to hunt for hot girls, and then some­one sug­gested that dance classes have many hot girls. So, I joined Shia­mak Davar’s dance class and danced be­hind all the big stars and in all big award events. And then I knew that some­day I will be in the front.”

Sushant said that it was Shia­mak “who gave me the con­fi­dence to be an ac­tor”.

“He used to tell me that al­though I am not one of his finest dancers, he still keeps me in the front row be­cause I have the charm to ad­dress the au­di­ence,” Sushant said.

The 29-year-old, who has starred in films such as Kai Po Che (2013), Shuddh Desi Ro­mance (2013) and PK (2014), will next be seen play­ing In­dian cricketer Ma­hen­dra Singh Dhoni in a biopic on the cricketer. It is also ru­moured that Sushant is soon plan­ning to tie the knot with girl­friend, ac­tor Ankita Lokhande.
