Sushant Singh Rajput is known to dive head on into his characters. His thought processes may not be seen as the most common, but they have delivered great results, as proven in his most intense films, like ‘M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story’ (2016). Rajput is working with Bhumi Pednekar for the first time in ‘Son Chiriya’, an dacoit drama, which will not showcase much romance between the two actors. Thus, there will be only one romantic song in the film, and Rajput reportedly convinced director Abhishek Chaubey to re-shoot the original, as there were an lack of chemistry portrayed.

As according to Mid-Day, a source revealed, “While going through the footage of the song, Sushant felt that the romance between his character and Bhumi’s wasn’t coming across. Since this is the only song that throws light on their love story in the otherwise gritty dacoit drama, it was imperative that the romance be established. On seeing the rushes over and over again, they realized that the song focused on Bhumi’s character with little scope for the male lead. When Sushant suggested the changes to Abhishek, he decided to reshoot it with a balanced approach. The new version sees Sushant’s character professing his love for Bhumi. It would have been difficult to redo this later since special permissions were taken for the shoot in Madhya Pradesh.”

Rajput will also be seen alongside Jacqueline Fernandez for the first time in Tarun Mansukhani’s ‘Drive’.
