Sushant shot to fame with his role as Manav Deshmukh in Ekta Kapoor's hit show 'Pavitra Rishta' and is making his Bollywood debut with 'Rock On' director Abhishek Kapoor's new film 'Kai Po Che'.
This film is yet to hit cinema houses but Sushant has bagged his second film-Rajkumar Hirani's 'Peekay'. "Yes... Sushant has been signed for 'Peekay'," sources close to the project told PTI, without divulging details of his role in the film.
