Sushant Singh Rajput, who plays a bindaas small-town lad in Shuddh Desi Romance, enjoyed playing his character because it takes a lot from his real life.
Sushant plays Raghu in the upcoming Yash Raj Films’ Shuddh Desi Romance, and gets to romance two beauties in the complicated romantic comedy. If with Vaani Kapoor he paints the town red, he stays in a live-in relationship with Parineeti Chopra in the movie.
It’s learnt that director Maneesh Sharma had an easy time explaining the role to the actor, and even for Sushant Singh Rajput stepping into his character’s shoes was a cakewalk as, like in the movie, he stays in a live-in with his ladylove Ankita Lokhande, whom he first met on the sets of TV show Pavitra Rishta, and eventually fell in love with.
“Sushant hails from Patna while his live-in sweetheart Ankita Lokhande hails from Indore. He has been quite open about his relationship just like in the film. They have stood by each other through thick and thin,” a source tells a tabloid.
In Shuddh Desi Romance too, Sushant starts living in with Parineeti’s character, and since the actor knows the pros and cons of living together, he was much prepared to play the role before shooting commenced.
