Sushant Singh Rajput is on roll these days as he will next be seen in Raabta and is also prepping hard for Chanda Mama Door Ke. In Chanda Mama Door Ke, Sushant is stepping into the shoes of an astronaut. It was earlier reported that Sushant Singh will head to National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
According to a leading tabloid, a spacesuit has been specially designed for the actor by special effects director John Palmer. Sushant confirmed the tabloid, “Yes, John and Sanjay have been working on this beautiful suit and I can’t wait to get into it. John will fly down to India soon and also meet me at NASA while I’ll be there for the prep.”
Sushant took to Twitter to share the picture of the spacesuit and wrote, “Special Spacesuit designed by John Palmer of #Martian fame for Chandamama. Can’t wait to get in it and start training @sanjaypchauhan.”
John said, “I have designed the spacesuits for which I researched latest Russian and Chinese suit models, along with Indian designs from ISRO. I’ve gone through thousands of designs with Sanjay before selecting these which incorporate Indian elements that are not only aesthetically appealing but functional too. Going by Sushant’s fitness level and dedication, he’s definitely up for the difficult training.”
“Sushant wants functionality over comfort. After special training from NASA and John’s team of experts, he will be ready to fly to the moon,” added John. Sushant has time and again said that he wanted to be an air force pilot. Sushant said, “I wanted to be an astronaut but since I couldn’t figure out how to pursue it, I decided I’d be an air force pilot instead. But my mother didn’t want me to pursue these professions so I started studying engineering instead but even then I was hooked on astrophysics. But now I’m getting to live my dream with this film. I have been fascinated by the subject myself and really looking forward to the experience.”
Talking about his trip to NASA, the Kai Po Che actor said, “It’ll be my first trip there and I’m waiting to experience zero gravity and 16 gravity.”
