His balanced reply obviously comes from a personal space, the actor debuted with UTV Motion Pictures’ film Kai Po Che and while he co-starred with two other competent actors Rajkummar Rao and Amit Sadh (both outsiders), it was Sushant who benefited the most from the movie. Three out of his five releases have been hits, and filmmakers like Rajkumar Hirani and Dibakar Banerjee have shown faith in his talent, so actor Sushant Singh Rajput — an outsider in Bollywood — believes he doesn’t have reasons to complain about nepotism. While most of the outsiders settle with independent films in the initial phase of their career before becoming ‘stars’, Sushant’s short filmography only boasts of movies by big banners and exhibits commercial treatment. But at the same time, the actor, in his fourth year of his career, is realistic enough to know that he falls in the category of rare.

Later, he starred in a small but important role in Hirani’s PK, a box-office superhit. 2017-04-16T19:09:10+00:00″>
