He nei­ther dwells on his suc­cess, nor does he keep think­ing about the fu­ture. Ac­tor Sushant Singh Ra­jput (left) says that he has al­ways fo­cussed on the things he likes do­ing, ir­re­spec­tive of wor­ry­ing about the re­sult.

“Right now, I am ac­tu­ally en­joy­ing it (his jour­ney in Bol­ly­wood) but that’s not what I do most of the times — I don’t re­flect... nei­ther am I ob­sessed with the fu­ture,” says the 31-year-old ac­tor.

“Ev­ery time I do some­thing that I re­ally like but don’t know how to do it, I am re­ally en­gaged [with it] — it’s like play­ing a video game. So risk tak­ing, per­se­ver­ance and hard work are sub­jec­tive... they are by-prod­ucts of some­thing very cru­cial — what you like do­ing,” he adds.

On how he fol­lowed his dreams, he says: “I was a schol­ar­ship stu­dent, had I done any­thing else, I don’t think I’d have this much money and ac­knowl­edg­ment. I mus­tered courage and did some­thing that I al­ways wanted to do. [The re­sult is that] I was driv­ing a Maruti then and I am driv­ing a Maserati now.” Asked if he con­sid­ers him­self a method ac­tor, Sushant says, “Peo­ple gen­er­ally [get] con­fused be­tween method act­ing and spon­ta­neous act­ing. I feel there is al­ways a method to spon­tane­ity. It’s not like any­body who can be con­fi­dent in front of cam­era is an ac­tor!”
