Actor Sushant Singh Rajput, who made his Bollywood debut with Kai Po Che, says that being a star is not on his mind. The actor began his career on television and is evolving in the big screen.
"My plan A was not to be in movies, this was not my aim it just happened. I am going with the flow. I am not here for money or fame and I don't work for it either. I don't understand stardom and don't aspire to be a star. I want to be a number one actor. My agenda is and will be always to evolve as an actor," Sushant said at an interview.
The 27-year-old has a number of interesting projects lined up for release including Shuddh Desi Romance, Peekay, Detective Byomkesh Bakshi and another film with Abhishek Kapoor. "I feel very fortunate to work with such talented directors. It is an exciting phase of my life. I have my own reasons to do films and be in this industry. I don't understand commerce so I don't make a decision based on what the film will do commercially," he said.
"I am not insecure. I am going with the flow and learning each day. If I don't get right kind of scripts then I will do something on TV or theatre and be happy and excited as I am today," he added.
On the potential of becoming a superstar in future, he says that there is a sense of huge responsibility. "I am not bothered rather I am excited. I feel responsible as filmmakers want to convey certain things through the film and the character that I play. They expect a lot from me as an actor. To achieve that kind of perfection you have to invest time in preparation. It is deliberate on my part to take two-three months time and do research and work, make myself believe that I can feel this character," Sushant explained.
