Acting is a powerful profession: Sushant Singh Rajput
Mumbai: He is just two films old, but actor Sushant Singh Rajput says he has already realised the power of cinema, and how it impacts the lives of people.
The 27-year-old, whose second movie `Shuddh Desi Romance` released Friday, says his source of inspiration is Bollywood badshah Shah Rukh Khan.
"I told Shah Rukh when I met him that I`m an actor because of him," Sushant said in a statement.
"When I used to watch his films earlier, I used to feel that acting as a profession is so powerful, you can convince people of something which you`re not. Or maybe it`s so larger than life and you can hide behind all these interesting and exciting characters. But I didn`t take acting seriously then," he added.
Sushant, who made his Bollywood debut with "Kai Po Che!", made the confession on `Breakfast To Dinner`episode featuring Sushant that will air Sunday.
