It's script over medium for Sushant Singh Rajput

March 21, 2015 Reetu 238 reads 0 comments 

Sushant Singh Rajput found the way to Bollywood after finding fame through his television shows. The actor says that though he is subjected to remarks that he has "graduated from TV to films", it is the script that excites him over the medium.

"The thing that will lure me back to the small screen is script. People ask me 'Whether I will do TV or not' or say 'You have graduated from TV to films', but I don't see it in that way. Medium doesn't excite me," Sushant told IANS during an interview here.

The actor made a mark with his role as the male lead's brother in TV show "Kis Desh Mein Hai Meraa Dil", and went on to grab the lead role in the serial "Pavitra Rishta". The show changed his life in many ways as he found recognition and his lady love Ankita Lokhande.

The actor made his debut on the silver screen with "Kai Po Che!" and followed up with "Shuddh Desi Romance". He was last seen in Aamir Khan-starrer "PK".

Talking about the mediums, he added: "If I am or anybody else is an honest actor, then he will forget who is watching (the film or show). So if you are not aware of the TV camera, movie camera or live audience, then it doesn't matter."

The 29-year-old actor, who is now gearing up for period drama "Detective Byomkesh Bakshy!", also notes that the process of enacting a character stays the same, irrespective of the medium.

"I started my career in acting with theatre. I have done nukad nataks (street plays), college plays, professional theatre, TV and then films.

"What I feel now after eight years of acting is that the process remains the same. The way I approach my character, the way I process my emotions and the way I express my emotions is the same," he said.

Meanwhile, the actor will also be seen in the title role in Neeraj Pandey's "MS Dhoni - The Untold Story".

I like fact he never looks down on tv with some silly excuses

The experimentalist: Getting up close and personal with Sushant Singh Rajput

Priyanka Srivastava   |   Mail Today  |   March 21, 2015 | UPDATED 11:35 IST

He is a devout member of the club of experimentalists in Bollywood, unapologetic about trying out something new on celluloid. Forever hungry to grab distinct roles, Sushant Singh Rajput gets a good night's sleep only after he has satisfied himself in front of the camera.

In the two films he has done so far, Sushant proved he enjoys going the extra mile to whet his appetite for offbeat characters within the mainstream format, in the process emerging as unique in the crowd of the new-age actors. "I am making these choices out of my excitement (for the medium), in turn getting excited about my choices," says Sushant. His next experiment is a dhoti-clad makeover of a Bhadralok detective as he brings to life Sharadindu Bandyopadhyay's classic creation, detective Byomkesh Bakshi. The film Detective Byomkesh Bakshy! is directed by Dibakar Banerjee, which would promise there is scope for characterisation that leads to adrenaline rush.

From the time he started shooting the film Sushant could not help but marvel at the world of Byomkesh and was in "absolute fascination with the character". The mention of Byomkesh Bakshi brings to mind several acclaimed actors including legendary Bengali actor Uttam Kumar, who essayed the detective inSatyajit Ray's Chiriyakhana, and Rajit Kapoor's brilliant portrayal in Basu Chatterjee's TV serial of the early nineties. Sushant hasn't watched any film or TV show on the detective but he read all the stories penned by Sharadindu - about 32 in number - as suggested by Dibakar. He refrained from watching other actors play Byomkesh because he wanted to bring his personal elucidation on screen.

"I learnt the script by heart as Dibakar had articulately incorporated everything about the character along with the mysteriously endearing world of old Calcutta to recreate the magic," says Sushant, who is simultaneously working on few other hyped projects such as Neeraj Pandey's MS Dhoni: The Untold Story, a biopic of the Indian cricket captain, and Shekhar Kapoor's Paani. He is undergoing grinding training to get into the skin of Dhoni while he knows that Paani would be yet another exhausting project about complications in a world as imagined by Kapoor, without water. "I had to undergo back-to-back auditions that lasted for 18 hours," says Sushant, underlining how hard it was to please Kapoor. Close interaction with Dibakar, Shekhar and Rajkumar Hirani (for a brief role in PK) has been a lifetime's education for the newcomer.

"They all are extremely different while approaching their films. Dibakar and Shekhar have the vision that we would associate with European cinema. They leave their actors on their own to give a personal narration on the screen," says Sushant. Their effect has helped him fine, considering he had everything that made him seem a misfit to begin with. He was a rank outsider minus an illustrious surname. In the staggering crowd of newcomers consisting of star kids, Sushant could only showcase his mass popularity by way of TV shows such as Pavitra Rishta and Jhallak Dikhlaa Jaa, with which he started. His popularity on TV initially proved to be a hindrance, given the unspoken, deeprooted prejudice against TV actors in Bollywood.

Not the type to recount how he was turned down by filmmakers during his struggling days, Sushant liberally quotes Gandhi to lay out his mantra while he was trying to make space for himself in the industry. "As Gandhi said first they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win," he points out. The Delhi boy who dropped out of the mechanical engineering course of Delhi College of Engineering is often compared with Shah Rukh Khan. Their TV background, theatre connections, acting classes by Barry John and Delhi roots are few common things. Sushant finds it too embarrassing to be compared with the superstar, considering he is still not aware of his trajectory.

"Everything happening around me is very random. I am enjoying the phase as the journey is far more enjoyable than the destination," concludes Sushant.

Rise of a TV star
Shah Rukh Khan and Vidya Balan were two legendary examples who made a memorable entry into Bollywood. Sushant Singh Rajput is yet another new entrant who not just broke the clutter but is also working in several big banner films. A large number of TV actors making a foray into Bollywood have to remain content playing second fiddle or essaying the lead in small films.

Few actors like Ram Kapoor and Ronit Roy made their presence felt with strong character roles, only after proving their mettle on the small screen for long. On TV, Sushant started out with a small role in Kis Desh Mein Hai Mera Meet in 2008 and went to become a sensation with Ekta Kapoor's Pavitra Rishta opposite Ankita Lokhande (in pic) , who he plans to marry soon. Sushant proved his dancing abilities on Zara Nach Ke Dikha and Jhallak Dikhlaa Jaa.

Neeraj Pandey's biopic about Indian captain Dhoni will narrate the cricketer's life as a Ranchi boy who rose from a humble background and went on to lead India to World Cup glory. A cricket player at college level, Sushant has been undergoing gruelling training to step into Dhoni's shoes.

Dibakar Banerjee's mystery thriller aims at initiating GenNow to the world of Byomkesh Bakshy, as created by Bengali novelist Sharadindu Bandyopadhyay. Sushant aims to offer a modern interpretation to the dhoti-clad, sharp and unassuming detective who solved some truly complicated crime cases.

PK (2014)
Rajkumar Hirani's mega blockbuster starring Aamir Khan as an alien and Anushka Sharma as a journalist was a satirical take on God and godmen. Although Sushant had a blink-and-miss role of a Pakistani boy in love with Anushka's character, he agreed to do the film only for Hirani.

Maneesh Sharma's rom-com was a refreshing take on live-in relationships in smalltowns. Sushant's portrayal of a confused boy, undecided about relationships and marriage, brought him to the forefront and helped him emerge as a new-gen heartthrob.

KAI PO CHE! (2013)
Sushant made his debut as Gujarati boy Ishaan, a district-level cricketer aiming to coach youngsters in his modest mohalla, in this Abhishek Kapoor film based on Chetan Bhagat's bestselling novel 3 Mistakes Of My Life. The story of three friends earned him accolades as a promising debutant. He made the complex Ishaan come across as a simple person on screen.

Sushant had no reason to refuse 'Detective Byomkesh Bakshy!'

March 21, 2015 Reetu 728 reads 0 comments 

Actor Sushant Singh Rajput, who will be seen as a protagonist in Dibakar Banerjee's period drama "Detective Byomkesh Bakshy!", says he had no reason to say no to the film as he felt it would be a great learning experience -- and it was!

Primarily, it was the film's freshness that attracted the actor, apart from getting the chance to work under Banerjee's direction.

"I jumped at the idea of working in this film with Dibakar Banerjee and Yash Raj Films. Besides, when I read the script, I was convinced to do it as it has lot of newness," Sushant, who has worked with Yash Raj Films in "Shuddh Desi Romance", said here.

"Everything shown in this film is period correct. However, the way all the stuff has been shown in the film is new and very interesting and innovative as well. There was so much in this film that I could learn, so I had no reason to say no to this film," he added.

"Detective Byomkesh Bakshy!" is based on fictional detective Byomkesh Bakshy created by Bengali writer Saradindu Bandyopadhyay. It is slated to release on April 3.

The 29-year-old actor further said: "From the very first day I was sure about doing this character."

Detective Byomkesh Bakshi - Character Sketches

Posted on March 21st, 2015 in HotMoviesNews

Yash Raj Films presents one of 2015's most anticipated releases Detective Byomkesh Bakshy!, a darkly compelling, pulp noir opening in cinemas worldwide on 3rd April 2015.

Directed by Dibakar Banerjee Detective Byomkesh Bakshy! is a gripping, Indian crime thriller based on the pursuits of the fictional, detective character famous in Indian literature. Sushant Singh Rajput, features in the title role alongside Anand Tiwari and Bengali actress Swastika Mukherjee in principal roles, supported by an exceptional ensemble including Divya Menon, Neeraj Kabi, Meiyang Chang, Mark Bennington and Shivam.

Detective Byomkesh Bakshy! is based on Saradindu Bandyopadhyay's popular fictional detective, Byomkesh Bakshy and presents a contemporary interpretation of Calcutta during the 1940's. This first of its kind detective film is an adventure thriller mired in deep political intrigue. A young, astute and intelligent Byomkesh, fresh out of college, pits himself against a mega world villain, depending more on his intuition and instinct rather than concrete proof to solve the case, sometimes sidestepping the law if needed.

We now present the characters of DBB!
15mar_ByomkeshBakshy-Character01BYOMKESH BAKSHY (SUSHANT SINGH RAJPUT)

Rude. Arrogant. Charming. Genius.

Byomkesh Bakshy is a man everyone loves  to hate. A habitual non-conformist,  Byomkesh is forever trying to make sense  of the world around him. He cares for nothing  else but truth; once found and he loses interest.  It is the pursuit, the hunt which interests him.  Byomkesh has almost photographic memory,  and does not let go of a mystery until he has solved  it for himself. Currently obsessed with his first case  - the disappearance of a genius chemist.

He is short of two things in life - friends & love.  While working on the case, Byomkesh becomes friends with Ajit Bannerjee, and their friendship grows  to be legendary. The other lacunae in his life, love,  is fulfilled by Satyawati, a woman who is an equal match to him in intelligence, character & strength.





Pursuing MA in Bangla Literature from Vidyasadan College. An aspiring writer, and a body-builder by hobby. Son of the genius chemist Bhuban Banerjee, who has suddenly gone missing.









The sister of Sukumar and niece to Gajanan Sikdar. The only one in the house who can stop uncle & nephew from jumping at each other's throats. She is young, quiet, demure - yet one can clearly see her sharp intelligence and strong will.








Heartthrob of Bengal. Her films fan riots on the opening weekend. When she sheds on tear on screen, rivers flow on the street. When she dies, her fans slit their wrists. When she sings, hearts break. Her face launches everything from beauty soaps to diamond jewellery. Her politically connected lover Gajanan Sikdar backs her with influence and money. Yet why do they say that she does tragic roles best?







The philanthropic homeopath and the owner/manager of Mahamaya Boarding House. He runs the boarding house like clockwork, has each boarders needs at his fingertips, helps the poor with free medicine, and is the only one who commands the respect of the rather arrogant new boarder Byomkesh Bakshy.







One of the sharpest Detectives to ever sit in Lalbazar. No one can figure him out. Some hate him for his ruthlessness. But many say he loves Calcutta. He is known to disguise himself and walk freely through the dangerous neighborhoods to keep up with the latest. But ever since the biggest shipment of Opium to land in Calcutta from Shanghai disappeared mysteriously from the riverside - he is a very worried man.






The Chinese opium trader (licensed) who found his home among the Bengalis at Mahamaya Lodge, loves fish curry, speaks Bangla fluently and has even changed his chinese name! He is on the lookout for someone called Cheng Ling. Cheng Ling who?








The mysterious Japanese dentist residing in a tony apartment in white town. He could pull your teeth out with a pair of pliers, but he prefers practicing with a sword after lunch.









Legislative Council member from the Amar Bengal Party that has shot to prominence suddenly in the last three years. No one knows how he in such short time he became so rich, politically powerful, and the special man in the life of the silver screen heartthrob Anguri Devi! Rumor has it that though in public he bays for the British Government's blood, actually he is hand in glove with them.







Nephew of Gajanan Sikdar. Young, firebrand leader of the new Jai Bengal Party, which split from Gajanan Sikdar's Amar Bengal Party a few weeks ago. Sukumar doesn't lose a single opportunity to heap scorn at his uncle's character and his political compromises. Clearly, all is not well in the family!







Without him mahamaya boarding house will stop functioning. He cooks, cleans, serves, dusts and knows the perfect recipe for Byomkesh's potato fries.









The mournful, lost ex roommate of Bhuban Banerjee. He has not been the same since Bhuban Babu went missing. Cant sleep at night and keeps asking for for Bhuban Babu's trademark paan masala he used to love having every day when Bhuban was around.







Insurance agent and the local wit at Mahamaya Boarding Lodge. He thinks he knows it all but does not have any proof!
