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