Not everyone knows that Sushant Singh Rajput was also a background dancer with choreographer Shiamak Davar before he became an actor. He used to dance as part of Shiamak Davar’s dance company just like Shahid Kapoor, Varun Dhawan and a few others in the industry today. He in fact has even performed as a background dancer with Aishwarya Rai, Preity Zinta etc in his dancing days.
From being an engineering student from Delhi to dancing as a background dancer for Shiamak and now being the star who is being choreographed by Shiamak is a huge achievement of Sushant. And Shiamak Davar is extremely proud of where Sushant has reached today.
Sushant has surely struggled a lot and shown the world that even common people with big dreams can achieve those dreams if they work hard and are passionate enough.
Expressing his pride, Shiamak says, “When Sushant wanted to take up engineering, I told him, why don’t you take up acting? You’re fun, you have a good understanding of the craft. I felt there was something special about him back then. He said I don’t know, education is important for me. I said just try, if you fail its okay but at least try. He listened to me and then he got a television role in ‘Pavitra Rishta’ and then he went on to doing films. In ‘Kai Po Che!’ (2013), he was outstanding and in ‘M.S Dhoni’ he was fabulous, beyond words.”
“The thing is that he is a very natural actor and that’s what I like about him. I knew somewhere that this boy had something. And he is a good dancer and it’s so important in the industry nowadays. I am very proud of him, extremely proud of him. I am so proud of where he has reached.”
Further adds, “More so I am proud of him as he hasn’t forgotten the faith I had in him. He has always, in every way, spoken about me as a teacher. Just shows the kind of person he is.”
