Sushant’s prep to play a dacoit
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.
