First Look: Sushant Singh Rajput impresses as Chambal dacoit in ‘Sonchiriya’


Sushant Singh Rajput kick-starts the shooting of his next venture, Abhishek Chaubey’s ‘Sonchiriya’ and the ‘MS-Dhoni’ actor is seen in an altogether different avatar. He nails the look of a Chanbal ki Dakoo and looks quite promising in the dacoit attire.

Sushant dons a rugged look for the film, messy hair and beard, khakee attire and a rifle, Sushant looks quite impressive.

The actor took to social media to announce the film along with the first look of the film and wrote, "SONCHIRIYA #AbhishekChaubey @RSVPMovies @RonnieScrewvala @honeytrehan @psbhumi @BajpayeeManoj @RanvirShorey @ashutoshrana10 https://t.co/hYI9cI9Qgc".

Sushant had earlier taken to Instagram to share a picture from the sets. He captioned the post as, “Really excited !! Shoot for one of my favourite, #AbhishekChaubey’s Film starts today in chambal. #RonnieScrewvala #BajpayeeManoj #bhumipednekar #RanvirShorey #AshutoshRana #MaheshBalraj.” 

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh also tweeted the first look of Sushant, he wrote# Sushant Singh Rajput embarks on a new journey... Check out the first look from his new film #Sonchiriya... Abhishek Chaubey directs. 

"Sushant is playing a dacoit for the first time and wanted to get into the character before the schedule starts so he will leave for the location on January 12 to spend time with a few former dacoits. He will also lose some muscle weight to look the rustic part as well as learn rifle-shooting," a source informed.

The film will be shot in Chambal and Mumbai.
