Sushant Singh Rajput will be seen in a Bollywood space film titled Chanda Mama Door Ke. Asked what is he doing after M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story, Sushant told IANS: “There are five films. One I have finished called ‘Raabta’ , there is a film with Homi Adjania, also featuring Parineeti, titled ‘Takadum’. Then there is a Dharma film with Jacqueline Fernandes. There is also a space film called ‘Chanda Mama Door Ke” and there is anther biopic on an athlete.”

The actor says this should be Bollywood’s first space film as he has never seen any such project in the past. “Should be…I have never seen a Bollywood space film before,” said Sushant, who was here to launch the new collect by Tissot Swiss watch.

However, Sushant will soon be seen on big screen in Neeraj Pandey’s “M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story”, a film about India’s World Cup-winning captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

Sushant Singh Rajput has never shied away from taking risks be it his stint on the small screen or taking a plunge into Bollywood with offbeat films like Kai Po Che! and Detective Byomkesh Bakshy!. Sushant says he yearns for excitement in life, adding that for him “risks are essential but very overrated”.

Asked about the transformation as an individual and as an actor over time, he said it was “seamless”, adding that it is a false perception that theatres to films is a natural progression.

“It’s our perception that theatre to films is a natural progression but it’s not. As an actor your job is the same. You need to pretend to the level of belief. I crave for excitement in my life and it happen only when I pick films and characters that I can’t comprehend completely at first,” Sushant
