Sushant Singh Ra­jput, who is busy shoot­ing for a biopic on In­dian cricketer MS Dhoni, is set to go back to col­lege next year. The ac­tor wants to study film­mak­ing at UCLA (Univer­sity of Cal­i­for­nia, Los An­ge­les). Ac­cord­ing to an in­sider, Sushant, who chose act­ing over en­gi­neer­ing (he quit col­lege to pur­sue a ca­reer in the en­ter­tain­ment industry), had planned to go to the US right af­ter com­plet­ing shoot­ing for his tele­vi­sion se­rial. He then got a chance to au­di­tion for Kai Po Che (2013), and was se­lected for it. Af­ter that, he never found the time for the course. Now, he is de­ter­mined.

“He has only one film in the pipe­line, other than the biopic. So, he feels it is the right time to take a break. Sushant will be go­ing to UCLA in Fe­bru­ary or March, 2016, de­pend­ing on the biopic’s re­lease date,” adds the source.

Con­fir ming the news, Sushant says, “I wanted to go to UCLA af­ter I com­pleted shoot­ing for my tele­vi­sion se­rial. How­ever, I was of­fered Kai Po Che and I de­cided to go later, as I wanted to give my de­but movie my best.”
