‘We don’t have Hol­ly­wood-like bud­get for a space movie’

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

Ac­tor Sushant Singh Ra­jput (right), who is a part of In­dia’s first space movie ti­tled Chanda Mama Door Ke, feels that mak­ing a space movie is chal­leng­ing due to a lack of bud­get.

When asked about his up­com­ing movie, Sushant, who was spot­ted at an event, said, “Mak­ing this movie was quite chal­leng­ing, be­cause it will be In­dia’s first space movie. Know­ing that we have all seen Hol­ly­wood movies like In­ter­stel­lar and Grav­ity and we also don’t have $110 mil­lion to make that film, so it is an ex­tremely chal­leng­ing thing for us. But, we want to give you that same ex­pe­ri­ence with­out that much of funding.”

The MS Dhoni star also shared the ex­pe­ri­ences from his re­cent visit to Na­tional Aero­nau­tics and Space Ad­min­is­tra­tion (NASA) in the US — a place he wanted to visit for long. Sushant vis­ited to pre­pare for the space ad­ven­ture to ex­pe­ri­ence zero grav­ity. He plays an as­tro­naut in the film. “I al­ways wanted to go to the NASA. I dropped out of my en­gi­neer­ing col­lege in third year. My friends com­pleted and went to the best B-schools, but they could not go to NASA. I al­ways make sure that I click pic­tures there and send to them to make them jeal­ous. I spent some time there, did ev­ery­thing that an as­tro­naut needs to do, so that I don’t dis­ap­point the fans when they see my movie,” says the ac­tor.
