Is Sushant Singh Rajput the new blue-eyed boy of Bollywood?

The Kai Po Che! lad has been bagging big films one after the other ever since he entered tinseltown

Though Sushant Singh Rajput has had only one movie release – Kai Po Che! – the actor has managed to impress the Bollywood biggies. Right from Yash Raj Films to Rajkumar Hirani, the boy has managed to get a lot of attention.

Our khabroo tells us the Shuddh Desi Romance actor has now been offered Ashutosh Gowariker’s next project. The Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey director’s next film is apparently a period drama set against the backdrop of the early Mohenjo-daro colonies in the Indian subcontinent. According to earlier reports, Hrithik Roshan was to be part of this film. But now Sushant is in it. Also, Gowariker is quite keen to work with Priyanka Chopra again, since she has been the director’s fave since What’s Your Rashee?.

So with this development, Sushant has his plate full for the next year or so. The actor will be seen in Detective Byomkesh Bakshy!, P.K. and a film opposite Katrina Kaif which is reportedly based on Charles Dickens book Great Expectations.
