Sushant Singh Ra­jput has been known to go the ex­tra mile for his char­ac­ters and do­ing in­tense re­search for his roles be­fore the shoot com­mences. So when he learnt that he had to play a da­coit from the Cham­bal re­gion in his up­com­ing film, Son Chiriya, the ac­tor de­cided to go all the way to get into the skin of his char­ac­ter. The ac­tor’s trans­for­ma­tion into a Cham­bal da­coit has cre­ated quite a buzz on so­cial me­dia as well. The film is be­ing helmed by di­rec­tor Ab­hishek Chaubey.

Ac­cord­ing to a source from the film’s unit, Sushant has been fol­low­ing a strict rou­tine to get into shape for his role as a da­coit. “Sushant has been fol­low­ing a dis­ci­plined morn­ing rou­tine be­fore he gets into the garb of his char­ac­ter. This in­cludes mak­ing his bed af­ter wak­ing up, fol­lowed by 15 min­utes of cal­is­then­ics — a va­ri­ety of gross mo­tor move­ments and body weight ex­er­cises, which in­clude run­ning, stand­ing, grasp­ing, push­ing.”

The source added that the ac­tor then takes a cold shower fol­lowed by a few min­utes of med­i­ta­tion to bin­au­ral beats. “The ac­tor also be­gins his day with a cup of what he refers to as ‘Su­per­man tea’, which is black and green tea with turmeric and gin­ger shav­ings, which he says keeps him revved up for the rest of the day,” the source says.
