Sushant Singh Rajput has spent two years in Bollywood, and has worked in films like Kai Po Che (2013), Shuddh Desi Romance (2013), PK (2014) and Detective Byomkesh Bakshy!. While he is a popular name among the young crop of Bollywood actors today, not many know that he had dropped out of the prestigious Delhi College Of Engineering (DCE) in 2006, to pursue acting.

A source close to the actor says that, now, that same college’s authorities want him to visit the campus. “They are proud of him, and want to honour him for what he has achieved. He will visit the college soon to receive the certificate and address the students,” says the source.

When contacted, Sushant confirmed the news, and said, “I am shocked with the invitation. Despite being a bright student, I left engineering in my third year to pursue my dream — Bollywood. It’s really touching that my engineering college wants to give me an honorary degree on their 75th anniversary.”
