Here's the start to the perfect success story of actor Sushant Singh Rajput, who began his career as a TV actor in 2008 with Kis Desh Mein Hai Mera Dil, which led him to his more popular role of Manav from Pavitra Rishta,
alongside bagging few other performances in the opening of the Commonwealth Games
and Filmfare Awards
- and Rajput continues to wow. Are we looking at the star of tomorrow
in the making? Indeed we are, but don't take our word for it! Take two
of the largest production houses in Bollywood Cinema's word for it!
That's correct, UTV and Yash Raj Films have Rajput at the very top of
their list with exclusivity staring at the young star right in the face.
Chetan Bhagat's novel, The 3 Mistakes of My Life, marked Rajput's official transition to the big screen with UTV's film adaptation titled Kai Po Che
earlier this year. However, his demand continued to expand when last
month he was invited to discuss the usual prospective 3-film contract
with Yash Raj Films.
Chopra was said to have immediately offered the Pavitra Rishta star a parallel lead with Arjun Kapoor in Aurangzeb,
and further established a keen interest in making a full-fledged dance
flick following Rajput's outstanding dance techniques in Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa, and finally a third film would be kept in the pipeline for future potential.
for the young actor, who had previously signed a 2-film deal with his
founder UTV, was obliged to fulfil his contract before aspiring to work
with outside banners officially. According to UTV, a dear investment lay
in the Chetan Bhagat adaptation and they have huge expectations for
Rajput's movie career to take off in a grand way once his debut is
released. But for the interim, he was not granted permission to sign any
This, due to formalities, Rajput has faced the loss of his first Yash Raj offer for the film Aurangzeb,
which was scheduled for shooting within the next few months. He has
also faced the disadvantage of losing Mukesh and Mahesh Bhatt's Aashiqui 2, which has reportedly been offered to Aditya Roy Kapoor.
latest amendment that has come about Rajput's recent career
complications is that UTV has agreed to narrow down the actor's
exclusive rights within certain time barriers. If, for any reason, the
said production house fails to launch its second project after January
2013, Rajput will be at liberty to sign any further films without
obligations. So the final question that remains by the end of all is
whether Chopra is willing to wait for Rajput to complete his contract.
may be the superstar of tomorrow for the big screen, but for us he will
always be the amazing actor who we watched as Preet and then as Manav,
who went on to shake our screens with his mind-blowing dance routines
and will forever be our superstar of today's small screen!
