Playing the much-loved character of Manav in ZEE TV’s ‘Pavitra Rishta’ is a far cry from the lavish Bollywood love being bestowed upon actor Sushant Singh Rajput. Having been an outstanding contestant on ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa’ last year, Singh Rajput is all set to debut on the big screen in Abhishek Kapoor’s ‘Kai Po Che’. News has it that the actor has also bagged some other lucrative projects in B-town.

The latest trade reports reveal that Singh Rajput will be starring in Rajkumar Hirani’s ‘Peekay’ alongside Aamir Khan and Anushka Sharma. Although actors such as Ranbir Kapoor and Ranveer Singh were initially considered for the role, it is Singh Rajput who landed it.

Aside from this, he has also bagged a role in Maneesh Sharma’s forthcoming to be produced under the Yash Raj Films banner, which will see Parineeti Chopra as female lead.

The actor celebrated his 27th birthday yesterday.
