Sushant Singh Rajput’s career is on a roll. After a series of setbacks with film-projects being shelved or delayed, things are again falling into place for this committed star-actor.
The latest on all things Sushant is a prestigious project with the Dangal director Nitesh Tiwari. The topical film, to go on the floors early next year, will feature Sushant as a real-life character grappling with corruption. Blessedly the producer this time is the tried-and-tested Sajid Nadiadwala who has had a string of hits in the recent past including the Housefull series and Baaghi 2 earlier this year.
Says a source close to the development, “Sushant is done with projects that fall by the wayside due to weak producers. He is happy to work in projects where the production house is strong and reliable.”
Apparently both director Nitesh Tiwari and Sushant are being paid in double digits by the ever-generous Nadiadwala. And we are talking crores.
Sushant, despite having had a huge hit in 2016’s MS Dhoni: The Untold Story had been facing tough luck with some of his recent projects. The much-touted Kedarnath that was to be Saif Ali Khan’s daughter Sara Ali Khan’s debut got entangled in a fight between its director Abhishek Sharma and producer Prernaa Arora. The film is now likely to be released at the end of the year.
