110 years leap in just two film
Actor Sushant Singh Rajput who is just three films old in the industry is all set to make a 110-year journey in his two films – ‘Detective Byomkesh Bakshy’ and ‘Paani’.
Sushant plays a detective in Kolkata in the 1940s in Dibakar Bannerjee’s ‘Detective Byomkesh Bakshy’, and he is cast as a ghetto-boy from Mumbai in the year 2050 in Shekhar Kapur’s ‘Paani’.
Sushant said, “I’m ready to make a 110-year leap from my last film to the next. In ‘…Byomkesh…’, though I had to go back in time to the 1940s, I had solid reference points. I watched a lot of films from that era. Then of course Dibakar was there to guide me.”
He further added, “With ‘Paani’, there are no reference points. I’ve the freedom to interpret my character in any way I like. In the rehearsals and workshops and with Shekhar’s help I am trying to make my character in ‘Paani’ believable”.
