When Sushant Singh Rajput started his journey in ­showbiz as a dancer under choreographer Shiamak Davar’s troupe, it was just to see “hot girls”, but he ended up getting life lessons there.

On a chat show, the actor was asked how an ­engineering student like him landed up in a dance class. He said: “You will be shocked to hear the story. I used to sell peanuts along with my friends to hunt for hot girls, and then someone suggested that dance classes have many hot girls. So, I joined Shiamak Davar’s dance class and danced behind all the big stars and in all big award events. And then I knew that someday I will be in the front.”

Sushant said that it was Shiamak “who gave me the ­confidence to be an actor”.

Sushant debuted in Bollywood with Kai Po Che.

“He used to tell me that although I am not one of his finest dancers, he still keeps me in the front row because I have the charm to address the audience,” Sushant said.

The 29-year-old, who has starred in films such as Kai Po Che (2013), Shuddh Desi Romance (2013) and PK (2014), will next be seen playing Indian cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni in a biopic on the cricketer. It is also rumoured that Sushant is soon planning to tie the knot with ­girlfriend, actor Ankita Lokhande.
