When Sushant Singh Rajput said he’d start a canteen in Film City if he didn’t get films after quitting TV
Late actor Sushant Singh Rajput, in an old interview, had talked about his back-up plan if he didn't get a chance to star in movies.
Sushant Singh Rajput, who switched from television to films in 2013,
had once talked about his back-up plan if he failed to sign a movie for his debut.
He said he'd make his ‘own films’ and in order to do so
he would also run a canteen in Mumbai's Film City, make a documentary on it
and also star in it.
Sushant died at the age of 34 in June 2020. He was found dead at his Mumbai residence. Friday marks his 36th birth anniversary.
The actor was last seen in the film Dil Bechara, which released just weeks after his death.
In a 2015 interview with Rediff.com, Sushant had opened up about shifting from TV to Bollywood and said:
When I quit television, people told me, you are doing a filmmaking course but what if you don’t get a film?
I said, ‘I will make my own films’. I had decided that if that happens,
I will start a canteen in Film City and I will buy a camera and make my own short film
about the canteen and feature in it too. And I know I would be as excited about that as I am right now.”
