After traveling to Hyderabad, Ahmedabad and Indore, Sushant Singh Rajput and Kriti Sanon were in Kolkata for the promotion of the upcoming Bollywood film Raabta.
Raabta starring Sushant Singh Rajput,Kriti Sanon and Jim Sarbh marks the debut of Dinesh Vijan as a director. Produced by Dinesh Vijan, Bhushan Kumar and Homi Adajania, the film will see Deepika Padukone doing a cameo in the title song of the film while Rajkummar Rao will also make a cameo appearance in the film.
To get in the role of the characters that they play in the film, both Kriti and Sushant took rigorous underwater training sessions in order to shoot the underwater bits in the film right. They took two weeks off and solely dedicated their time to these sessions, so that they could perform with conviction.
Sushant said, “For me getting into the skin of the character is a need. I have to be that person, know how to do what he does. Only then will it look like I am that person and not enacting it. In Raabta too, I had to learn how to stay underwater for long and I was ready to do whatever it takes. It is the way an actor should rehearse and prepare for his role.”
“Before Raabta happened, I did not really know how to swim and was scared of being underwater. The underwater sequences in the film needed me to be absolutely calm and comfortable while performing. As an actor it’s very important to not have any parallel thoughts or fears while playing a character. Two weeks of swimming and scuba sessions eased me out. I still don’t love being under water but I am not scared anymore,” Kriti added.
Raabta is a modern-day story of two ordinary people who have the most extraordinary experience when they realize that they are connected through a past experience of unrequited love, passion, adventure and treachery. Raabta, which has been extensively shot in Budapest, Mauritius and Punjab, is a love story based on dreams, destiny and love.
The music of the film has been composed by Pritam, JAM8, Meet Bros and Saurav Roy. The lyrics have been penned by Amitabh Bhattacharya, Irshad Kamil and Kumaar. The full soundtrack album of the film which includes 7 songs was released by T-Series.
The film is slated for release on 9th June.
