Sushant who was extensively praised for his hard work and prepping to play Dhoni’s character is now to play the role of an Astronaut in Sanjay’s film.
“He has started the preparation for his character. It will be a different experience for the audience as well. As far as Sushant is concerned, he gives his 200 percent in each and every role,” said Sanjay regarding Sushant’s prep for the film. The film is said to be released by mid 2017.
Sushant is leaving no stone unturned to do justice to his character. “The role would require me to acquire the flying skills of a pilot. I begin training on the jet flight simulator this week. They artificially recreate the environment of an aircraft. Later, I’ll start training with space simulators. I’d also want to experience flying in zero gravity,” says Sushant who will also be watching various space documentaries and will be reading about 10 books suggested by Sanjay.
‘Chanda mama door ke’ promises to bring a never seen before concept to the Indian Cinema and, is already being compared to the Hollywood movie ‘Gravity’ which was released in 2013. “We can’t categorize this film with any other film and let’s not compare it with ‘Gravity’ said Sanjay regarding the same.
