After ruling the small screen with his boy-next-door character Manav, actor Sushant Singh Rajput is emerging as the next superstar on the silver screen as he has given some memorable performances in films like MS Dhoni: The Untold Story and Shuddh Desi Romance. Talking about the Maneesh Sharma-directorial, the romantic-comedy, which showed the views of youth on an arranged-marriage, live-in relationships and commitment issues, had received immense praises from cine-goers for the direction, plot and performances of Sushant Singh Rajput, Parineeti Chopra and Vaani Kapoor.

But did you have any idea that SSR was not the first choice for the film? Director Maneesh had taken another chocolate-boy star Shahid Kapoor to portray the character of Raghu Ram in this YRF venture. But the film took too long to go on the floors and Shasha had other commitments. So, unfortunately, he had to turn down the offer. The film went on to become a hit and Shasha's loss turned out to be Sushant's gain. But honestly, that's a normal thing to happen in B-Town, isn't it?
Meanwhile, Shahid is shooting the last leg of Kabir Singh along with Kiara Advani, which is the official remake of Vijay Deverakonda's Telugu hit Arjun Reddy. The film is scheduled to release on June 21. On the other hand, SSR has 5 projects in the pipeline, out of which Sonchiriya is hitting the screens this Friday. Directed by Abhishek Chaubey, the dacoit drama also stars Bhumi Pednekar, Manoj Bajpayee, Ashutosh Rana and Ranvir Shorey in key roles.
