Sushant Divgikar (left), who won Mr Gay In­dia pageant in 2014, be­came pop­u­lar when he par­tic­i­pated in Bigg Boss sea­son 8. And now, the model-ac­tor-VJ is all set to de­but as a play­back singer in a Marathi film ti­tled Vit­thal, which is be­ing helmed by di­rec­tor Ra­jiv S Ruia.

“I al­ways wanted to be a singer and when I was a kid, I used to watch singing shows on TV and wished I could be a part of some pop band like VIVA or Band of Boys. But one thing led to an­other and I got into host­ing shows on TV,” says Sushant, adding that he never aban­doned his pas­sion for singing.

Sushant is known for his abil­ity to sing flaw­lessly in mas­cu­line and fem­i­nine voices and he will sing in both voices for the song Dhangad Dhinga in the film.

Sushant, who has also signed a short film be­ing di­rected by Su­mit Singh, adds, “Re­cently, I de­cided to chan­nelise all my en­ergy to pur­sue my first love — mu­sic, and when it comes to the en­ter­tain­ment in­dus­try, I have been a pi­o­neer in many ways, not only as an artist and a singer, but also as a rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the LGBT com­mu­nity in In­dia.”
