It’s been a busy year for actor Sushant Singh Rajput who was in Uttarakhand shooting for Abhishek Kapoor’s Kedarnath last year, then flew to Israel to shoot for a special song for Drive with Jacqueline Fernandez. The actor is set to start shooting for Abhishek Chaubey’s film later this month in Chambal region. He is likely to reach the location three weeks early to prep for his role.

“Sushant is playing a dacoit for the first time and wanted to get into the character before the schedule starts, so he will leave for the location on January 12 to spend time with a few former dacoits. He will also lose some muscle weight to look the rustic part as well as learn rifle-shooting,” informed a source close to the development. The source adds, “Sushant has always enjoyed getting under the skin of his characters and undergoes whatever transformations are required of his roles.”

The fictional story is inspired by the tales of Chambal and is set in the 1970’s. So, a major part of the preparation includes working on his diction. Sushant will be joined by co-star Bhumi Pednekar, who also plays a dacoit and his love interest, while Manoj Bajpayee has been roped in for another pivotal role.

“The cast will also work on the Bundelkhandi dialect. Abhishek is leaving for Chambal on January 8. This will be followed by a shorter schedule in Mumbai at a later stage,” adds the source.
