Sushant Singh Rajput has slowly but surely made a mark for himself. From being a much loved face on Indian television to smoothly transitioning to the big screen – he has had a commendable journey! He’s today considered one of the best and most bankable actors we have but his journey hasn’t been easy. A lot of hard work has gone into getting to where he is.

In a recent interview with HT Brunch, he spoke about his journey from the small to the big screen.

People often ask why after Shah Rukh Khan, I am the only actor who could successfully make the transition from television to movies. Let me recount an incident from the sport’s history. In 1954, Roger Bannister was the first man ever to run a mile in less than four minutes, till then it was an unheard of feat. But the very next year 27 other people achieved the same feat. This was because they thought that if he can do it, so can we. But here, most people think that oh this guy just got lucky, and they don’t put in the effort. Luck is a factor, definitely, but don’t make it your excuse.

Couldn’t agree more!
