Sushant Singh Rajput has come a long way professionally.
He began his career with Ekta Kapoor’s Pavitra Rishta and soon became a
heartthrob of the telly world. In 2013, he made his debut with Abhishek
Kapoor’s Kai Po Che and the rest, as they say, is history.
In an interview with Elle, Sushant confesses that he expected way more for fame and stardom. He states, “I felt cheated. I thought fame and money would change everything, but I didn’t know you get used to both pretty quickly. It started to get really boring and I thought: now what?”

Talking about being comfortable with any medium of expression, the actor further says, “I don’t discriminate between mediums. I don’t think you graduate from theatre to TV to films. I can do a nukkad natak and be just as excited. Or do a short film that never goes to a festival. I don’t care.”
While most “outsiders” feel that being one is a disadvantage, Sushant feels that it’s the effort of a small pack of outsiders, paddling hard to stay afloat, that rids the industry of lazy, complacent cinema. “Us outsiders are upping our game, and now (good work) is out there for everyone to see. As a result, insiders have to up their game too,” he says.
