Sushant Singh Rajput is enjoying a good time in Bollywood having many promising films in his kitty. The actor will play the role of an astronaut in his upcoming movie ‘Chanda Mama Door Ke‘. Sushant is presently receiving training at NASA’s Space & Rocket Centre at Alabama, USA.
Check out his astronaut look:
Eros International and Viki Rajnani are producing the movie. Also, the National award-winning director Sanjay Puran Singh is directing the movie. Alongside Sushant Singh Rajput, the film also features R Madhavan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui in the lead roles. As a matter of fact, Sushant is the first actor from Bollywood to receive special training at NASA.
Following Sushant’s arrival, USSRC released an official statement stating:
“We would like to welcome Youth Icon and promising Indian Actor, Sushant Singh Rajput for undergoing this training schedule, including the important training regimes such as, ‘Flying a Space Shuttle Simulator’ or ‘Lunar Module/Mars Lander Simulation’, ‘Experiencing Zero G’, ‘1/6’, ‘Wearing a professional Space Suit’, ‘Flying a multi-axis trainer’ and ‘Docking the shuttle to the ISS’. We congratulate him on his decision and applaud the prudent advice of his director to make things more authentic rather than just following basic scripts, concepts, and virtual technologies. We wish Sushant all the success for the training and for his film and commend his efforts in the wake of educating people back there in India through the learnings he will take back from here. We hope he will not only use this knowledge for on-screen perfection but also be socially involved in educating people about the future of it, especially in a nation, which is an emerging powerhouse in Aeronautical Engineering and Space and Research Programmes today; a land that has produced legendary astronauts.”
Talking about the film, Viki Rajani said:
“We are very honored and privileged to be pioneering the first of its kind film in Bollywood and that Sushant Singh Rajput is the very Indian actor to train at NASA. The director Sanjay Puran Singh Chauhan has worked on the script and the technical detailing for the last 7-8 years. All this together will go a long way in putting together a truly authentic space odyssey.”
