The actor is ready with his next release ‘Raabta’ which is currently making the right amount of noise among fans and moviegoers. And with some very interesting projects lined up in his kitty, this latest news will add to the happiness of his ardent fans.

It has been reported that the project revolves around Chambal dacoits and is set in the period of 1970s. The film is being produced by Ronnie Screwvala. Sudip Sharma, who has co-written the film has talked about his initial research on the project saying, “Some of them have more than 80 murder charges on them. Everyone has heard horror stories about the dacoits of Chambal but I’ve realised the reality is quite different from what Hindi films portray. We aim to capture that reality.” [sic]

Well, it would be quite interesting to see Sushant in this yet another different avatar. But, let’s wait for an official confirmation from the makers or the actor himself.

Talking about Sushant Singh’s upcoming projects, the actor will soon start shooting for ‘Chanda Mama Door Ke’ where he will be seen playing an astronaut. There’s also a film titled ‘Romeo Akbar Walter’, which is touted to be a thriller and is directed by Robby Grewal.
