Sushant Singh Rajput has carved his Bollywood career and is in no mood to slow down. The ‘M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story’ (2016) star was once an engineering student studying in a top college in Delhi, but he dropped out of the course in final year after realising he was more inclined towards the arts.
In a recent column, Rajput wrote about his rise to fame and obstacles he had to overcome on his journey from a background dancer to a film star, reports Deccan Chronicle. At that time, Rajput felt that he should met a girl, which led him to join choreographer Shiamak Davar’s dance group.
Talking about his struggling days, Rajput said, “I felt the need to meet a girl, and that led me to Shiamak Davar’s group. My life went into a spin from that point on. Instead of heading to Stanford University from where I had a scholarship offer, I dropped out of college and landed in Versova, in a 1RK (room kitchen) that I shared with six others. You can imagine the reaction at home.”
He then moved to Mumbai in 2006, leaving his family shell-shocked. “It was 2006, my final year in college when I dropped this bomb at home. They were shocked! So shocked that they couldn’t say anything and I took their silence as their approval… It was hard at that time but now it’s different,” he revealed.
He then went on to state that his father is very proud of him but wishes he had completed his studies. Speaking about his father, an emotional Rajput wrote, “My dad loves it when, on his walks, people call out to him, show him some recent clipping on me…he is really proud of me. But even today, almost all our conversations end with “beta, degree le leta…””
