Most people would like to believe that Sushant Singh Rajput is not on the best of terms with his Kedarnath producer, Prernaa Arora, after recent reports that the actor was at loggerheads with her and the Kedarnath director Abhishek Kapoor over date hassles. But Prernaa is all praise for Sushant Singh and his immense talent, “He is an incredibly talented actor with a tremendous acting potential. He is a born star. I guess his talent was obvious from his very first film, Kai Po Che. He has also proved that talent overrides everything else in this industry. I am proud to have him on board for Kedarnath and I wish him a great year ahead on the eve of his birthday,” Prernaa said.
The enterprising producer who has a slate of releases in the weeks ahead also clarified that she never had differences with Sushant Singh at any point of time, “Those were all rumours. There were date issues to be resolved but Sushant and I were on the same page and so was Gattu (Abhishek Kapoor). Both I and Gattu have full faith in him. His role in Kedarnath would be one to watch out for,” she said.

Sushant Singh’s last film Raabta had not worked at the box-office but the actor has a formidable line-up of films in the year ahead including a film each with Udta Punjab director Abhishek Chaubey, Dangal director, Nitesh Tiwari and casting director Mukesh Chhabra’s directorial debut. Right now the actor is all geared up for his next big release Karan Johar’s Drive being directed by Tarun Mansukhani. In an earlier interview Sushant Singh had revealed why he was so kicked up about his role in the action comedy, “It is a very stylish and sleek film but the very interesting part is that the drive is very engaging. You will be waiting with bated breath for what happens next,” he said. He had also spoken about how he had connected with the audiences with the role of MS Dhoni, The Untold Story which won him a lot of adulation, “The biggest satisfaction one gets is when the audience connects with you as an actor and that’s where MS Dhoni made a difference. I would like want each of my roles to resonate with the audiences and that’s where the box-office comes into play,” the actor said.
