Sushant Singh Rajput became a household name as Manav Deshmukh in Ekta Kapoor’s TV soap Pavitra Rishta. The talented actor, who worked on the show from 2009 to 2011, won many awards for his performance in the very popular television series. However, how SSR made a name for himself in the big bad world of Bollywood, is an inspiring story of success and hard work.
It is no wonder then that SSR is all mushy towards his mentor Ekta at Karan Johar’s Valentine’s Day bash. Check out the MS Dhoni star hugging Ekta in this adorable pic!
On the work front, SSR’s last movie M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story became a huge hit at the box office. The movie directed by Neeraj Pandey was based on the life of Indian cricketer and the former Test, ODI and T20I captain of the Indian national cricket team, Mahendra Singh Dhoni. The film also featured Disha Patani, Kiara Advani, and Anupam Kher.
SSR will next be seen in Raabta opposite the lovely Kriti Sanon. The film directed by Dinesh Vijan and produced by Homi Adajania is scheduled for release on 9 June.
On the personal front, SSR was in a long and steady relationship with his Pavitra Rishta co-star Ankita Lokhande. However, the two broke up last year after very many years of courtship. SSR was later rumoured to be dating Kriti Sanon. However, the two stars rubbished these rumours.
However, it will be interesting to watch the cute pair in Raabta. Are you looking forward to that?
