Noted Bollywood actor Sushant Singh who first shot into limelight with his baddie role in Ram Gopal Varma’s Jungle (2000) and then became a mascot fixture in most of Varma’s movies is playing a pivotal positive role in senior producer-director K.C. Bokadia’s latest Hindi film titled Dirty Politics which also has the dare-bare Mallika Sherawat in its cast. The versatile actor will be seen in a guest appearance in an upcoming Yash Raj venture Gunday and also in a lead role opposite Surveen Chawla in Vikram Bhatt’s sequel Hate Story-2.
Apparently, his latest look as the suave TV anchor of the crime-reality show Saavdhaan India where he is sporting a macho handle-bar moustache has endeared himself to kids. Enthuses Singh, “It’s bizarre, that although its supposedly a late-night slot crime-based reality adults show, I am frequently being mobbed by children in small towns and cities, almost wherever I go. Most of them may not recall which movies they have seen me in. But they instantly connect with me as the Savdhaan host on Life’s OK channel. They find the show to be an informative eye-opener for prevention of juvenile crime,” shrugs Sushant whose latest ready-for-release is this comedy thriller Four Two Ka One directed by Anwer Khan. Wasn’t his new, imposing, tough look (on the lines of a stern police officer) rather intimidating? “On the contrary, grown-ups and even show-biz folks have been darting admiring and even envious glances. “Kya moochhe asli hain kya”, is an oft-repeated sawaal from some of them,” he smiles as he signs off.
