In an official statement released from USSRC, they said, “We would like to welcome youth icon and promising Indian actor, Sushant Singh Rajput for undergoing this training schedule, including the important training regimes such as, flying a space shuttle simulator or ‘lunar module/Mars lander simulation’, experiencing zero gravity, wearing a professional space suit’, flying a multi-axis trainer, and docking the shuttle to the ISS."

Produced by Eros International and Viki Rajani and directed by National award-winner Sanjay Puran Singh (Lahore fame), Chanda Mama Door Ke is India’s first epic space odyssey starring Sushant Singh Rajput, R Madhavan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui among others.

Sushant, who is known to get under the skin of all his characters, is going the extra mile for Chanda... and is currently at NASA’s Space & Rocket Centre at Alabama, in USA. The actor is preparing for the role of an astronaut, by participating in workshops and various training regimes aimed at acquainting him with the life of an astronaut, in as realistic a manner as possible.

USSRC recently welcomed Sushant, the first actor from the Indian film industry to undergo special training at NASA. In an official statement released from USSRC, they said, “We would like to welcome youth icon and promising Indian actor, Sushant Singh Rajput for undergoing this training schedule, including the important training regimes such as, flying a space shuttle simulator or ‘lunar module/Mars lander simulation’, experiencing zero gravity, wearing a professional space suit’, flying a multi-axis trainer, and docking the shuttle to the ISS. We congratulate him over his decision and applaud the prudent advice of his director to make things more authentic rather than just following basic scripts, concepts and virtual technologies. We wish Sushant all the success for the training and for his film and commend his efforts in the wake of educating people back there in India through the learnings he will take back from here. We hope he will not only use this knowledge for on-screen perfection, but also be socially involved in educating people about the future of it, especially in a nation, which is an emerging powerhouse in Aeronautical Engineering and Space and Research Programmes today; a land that has produced legendary astronauts.”
