Sushant Singh Rajput becomes first Indian actor to receive training at NASAAug 2, 2017 Abhishree Kulkarni
It’s a known fact that actor Sushant Singh Rajput goes out of his way to prepare for the roles his play. The actor who is currently working on the space odyssey – ‘Chanda Mama Door Ke’, is pushing the envelope yet again to get under the skin of his character.
Sushant who is playing an astronaut in the film is currently at NASA’s Space and Rocket Centre at Alabama, in USA, where he is participating in workshops and undergoing various training to acquaint himself with the life of an astronaut. In fact, he is the first Indian film actor to undergo this 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 G', '1/6', '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.”
Produced by Eros International and Viki Rajani and directed by National award-winner Sanjay Puran Singh (of Lahore fame), ‘Chanda Mama Door Ke’ is India’s first epic space odyssey with a massive cast of Sushant Singh Rajput, R Madhavan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui among others.
