Actor Sushant Singh Rajput who will be starring in India’s first space movie ‘Chanda Mama Door Ke’ believes that the lack of budget is what makes the production of a space movie challenging.
Sushant will be playing the role of an astronaut in the movie. He undertook the training to experience zero gravity at the NASA centre in the US for his role in the movie.
Talking about his forthcoming film, Sushant Singh Rajput said, “Making this movie was quite challenging, because it will be India’s first space movie. Knowing that we have all seen movies like ‘ Interstellar’ and ‘ Gravity’ and we also don’t have 110 million USD to make that film, so it is an extremely challenging thing for us. But, we want to give you that same experience without that much of funding.”
As the actor shared his experience of his visit to Nasa. He said, “I was in the NASA and I always wanted to go to the NASA. I dropped out of my engineering college in third year. My friends completed and went to the best B-schools, but they could not go to NASA. I always make sure that I click pictures there and send to them to make them jealous. I spent some time there, did everything that an astronaut needs to do, so that I don’t disappoint the fans when they see the movie.”
Nawazuddin Siddiqui and R Madhavan will also feature in ‘Chanda Mama Door Ke’ which is directed by Sanjay Puran Singh Chauhan.
