Is Sushant Singh Rajput trying hard to impress John Travolta?

While John Travolta was quite impressed by Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra recently, wethinks that the Shuddh Desi Romance actor wants to be the next B-townie to do so

A little birdie tells us that Sushant Singh Rajput is putting in extra efforts for his next film which apparently also stars John Travolta. We hear that though Sushant has just wrapped up his film with Dibakar Banerjee, he has already started preparing for Shekhar Kapur’s Paani. Only recently, Travolta said, “I’ve been approached and I’m considering doing this film.” Well, wethinks that ever since Sushant heard this he wants to make sure that he doesn’t get overshadowed by John Travolta. Wink, wink!

Reportedly, Sushant Singh Rajput who plays the lead role in Paani has requested filmmakers Aditya Chopra and Shekhar to give him 100 days to prepare for his character in the film.

A source was quoted by a popular daily, “Especially now that Travolta is likely to star in the film along with Sushant, he wants to put his best foot forward. Also, he has been a fan of films like Face/Off (1997), Saturday Night Fever (1977) and Pulp Fiction (1994), so he wants to be fully prepared to work with someone like Travolta.”

That’s not all, Sushant wants to get in shape for Paani, we hear. The source said, “For Dibakar’s film, he had lost a lot of weight, but for Shekhar’s next, he needs to have a chiselled physique. All of it will take time since he has just finished the shoot of his last film. That’s why he has asked for 100 days from Aditya sir and Shekhar. And they have agreed, too, because they are aware that it’s going to be a challenging part for Sushant.”

Well now, let’s wait and watch how Sushant looks in Paani. And let’s keep our fingers crossed that his 100 days of efforts don’t go in vain…
