Actor Sushant Singh Rajput, who is gearing up for the release of his upcoming film Raabta, has said that he admires filmmakers Abhishek Kapoor’s passion for cinema. Sushant made his Bollywood debut with Kai Po Che, which was directed by Abhishek.
Abhishek's last film Fitoor did not work at the box office. There were reports of a rift between the actor and the director after Sushant dropped out of the project. Sushant, however, says he is looking forward to reteam with Abhishek after their 2013 movie.
"'Fitoor' almost happened. But I was waiting to work with Abhishek Kapoor after 'Kai Po Che!'. One thing, apart from innocence I like in people is their passion. You might not had an immediate success, but that doesn't matter to me. If you are passionate, I cannot say no as I am also like that," Sushant told PTI.
Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh's daughter Sara Ali Khan is also in talks to star opposite Sushant in the film. The director, Sushant, Sara and Amrita were recently spotted at a hotspot in Mumbai.
"We still have to sign the film so I can't say much about working with Sara," he says when asked about their recent meeting. The actor, whose film Raabta is slated to release this Friday, will soon start working on Drive with Jacqueline Fernandez.
He is also preparing for sci-fi Chanda Mama Door Ke. Apart from this, Sushant is in talks with Udta Punjab director Abhishek Chaubey for his next.
