They were India’s premier fast bowlers. So if Zaheer Khan and Ashish Nehra offer to train an actor for a cricketer’s role, it’s bound to be authentic. And that’s exactly what happened to actor Sushant Singh Rajput.
A few days ago, during the pre-release promotions of 'Kai Po Che!' in Delhi,director Abhishek Kapoor and Sushant bumped into Zaheer and Ashish at a five-star hotel while they were having dinner.
“Sushant plays a cricketer in the film. And when Zaheer and Ashish found that out during the course of the conversation, they became very interested and started giving him tips on the game. They spent a lot of time discussing cricket because Sushant has also played the sport in his youth,” says an insider close to the film.
“It was a pleasure to meet them and I’m excited that I will be using insider tips from two of the best fast bowlers in the country. They will help me get into the skin of the character I’m playing,” confirms Sushant.
What’s most interesting is that both Zaheer and Ashish have told the actor that they will train him before the next schedule of 'Kai Po Che!' kicks off in about 12 days.
The makers are also elated at the opportunity. “Sushant will train intensively for his role as a cricketer. He will work on his batting and bowling skills and it was brilliant for him that he met Ashish and Zaheer by chance, who are good friends with Abhishek. He could pick their brains on bowling tips,” says Manish Hariprasad, creative director, (studios), Disney UTV.
