Recently, Sushant Singh Rajput, who is enjoying the success of his last release M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story, was approached to speak at the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay’s leadership summit.

A source close to the actor reveals, “Sushant is currently preparing for his next film. He took time out from his schedule to speak at the summit on Friday (October 21). Sushant is also a former engineering student. So, the opportunity to speak at the summit was a special one, and became a nostalgic trip for him. The students could relate to him and his stories.”

Apparently, attending the summit was a journey down memory lane for the actor. The source adds, “Sushant studied at an engineering college in Delhi. He spoke about his college days and how he dropped out of the university to pursue a career in acting. He encouraged the students to follow their dreams and also spoke about his struggles in the entertainment industry. Sushant’s aim was to share insights from his experience, so that it could be of help to the students.”

The actor will next be seen in Raabta, co-starring Kriti Sanon and another project co-starring Jacqueline Fernandez.
