Raabta actor Sushant Singh Rajput says that he isn’t full of himself; the public just expects him to be so, as his film MS Dhoni: The Untold Story was so successful.

Actor Sushant Singh Rajput has been called “arrogant”, especially after his film MS Dhoni: The Untold Story (2016) earned more than Rs 100 crore at the box-office. Sushant, who stars in the recently-released film Raabta, is a bit baffled by this tag.

“Earlier, before MS, when I used to speak my mind, people used to tell me, ‘Oh you are such a refreshing personality in the industry. You are so honest and please don’t change’. Now, after MS has earned Rs 130 crore and I don’t get a single f*****g penny [out of it], they think I have become a big star. Now if I speak what I feel, people think I have become a big star and I am arrogant,” he adds.

After his success, Sushant feels that the public expects him to be full of himself. “People don’t see things that they don’t expect. So, it’s not that I have become arrogant, but it is their belief, that I have become so. I am okay with that really,” says the actor who has worked in films such as Kai Po Che! (2013), PK (2014), Raabta among others.

However, the 31-year-old actor has a unique way of handling such remarks. Unlike other actors who try not get worked up, he prefers to get affected by these comments. “I let things affect me, and I want to be bothered by all the negativity. As an actor, one of the most important things is to remain vulnerable. I have been acting for 11 years and I have access to that vulnerability part of a character, when I am playing it on-screen. That’s why people say, ‘his acting is realistic.’ So, I have to condition myself to get used to negativity, or else I can’t be a good actor,” Sushant adds.
