From starting his career with television to becoming a known face in the Hindi cinema, the Patna boy Sushant Singh Rajput has indeed come a long way. Needless to say, it is hard to make a switch from TV to Bollywood. He is one of the very few celebrities who has actually made it big in the industry and there is absolutely no doubt about the fact that it's his hard work and skills that have gotten him to the stage where he is now. Sushant, who is now soaring new heights of success actually started pretty small. On his birthday today, let's look at Rajput's career graph on how he started from being the boy next door and ended up becoming the next big thing!
While doing one of the stage plays for Ekjute, Sushant landed a role in Balaji Productions' Kis Desh Mein Hai Meraa Dil. His role was loved so much that despite being killed, they extended his act in the form of a ghost.
Sushant then bagged the lead role on Zee TV's Pavitra Rishta as Manav, which made him a popular name in every household. Along with the TV show, he also participated in the dance shows Zara Nachke Dikha 2 and Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 4.
After playing the lead role for over two years, Rajput quit Pavitra Rishta to go abroad and study filmmaking. On his return, he auditioned for Abhishek Kapoor's Kai Po Che! and even got selected to play one of the leads. The film turned out to be a massive hit and his career got just the kind of boost he needed.
Sushant then went on to do Shuddh Desi Romance opposite Parineeti Chopra and Vaani Kapoor, which tanked without a trace but got him a lot of praise for his acting. Post this came PK. Sushant, despite having a minor role, did complete justice to it and that gave his career a push in the desirable direction.
Rajput did two movies in the following two years as the lead. While Detective Byomkesh Bakshy! was a semi hit and got him mixed response from the viewers, M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story was a massive success and was praised by both critics and audience alike.
Sushant, now at the peak of his career, is shooting for Raabta which is expected to release this year. We wish him all the success and a very happy birthday!
