Before MS Dhoni: The Untold Story hit the theaters, we had a no holds barred chat with Sushant Singh Rajput about his latest movie, his contemporaries, followed by a fun game of 'five seconds rule' on The Firstpost Show with Renil Abraham in association with Garnier Men Acnofight.

Sushant spoke about how his family reacted when they got to know that he wanted to be a dancer and an actor. He said that he didn't tell his family about this for almost three years till a situation came up where he had to fly abroad for a dance performance.

When asked about how he can still be cordial with a contemporary actor who probably bagged a role he really wanted, he jokingly said that he is a good actor in real life also. He went on to say that he would definitely feel disappointed if someone else got a role that he really wanted, but would never have a problem with the other actor who got the movie.

The episode took a much more fun turn when Renil spoke to him about how he reacts to male and female attention. Sushant said he doesn't know how to respond to someone who is hitting on him; he gets uncomfortable and that any kind of feedback is not welcome. "If a girl is hitting on me, even if I like her, I still wouldn't know what to do," Sushant confessed.

We spoke about his recent public break up with actress Ankita Lokhande and asked him if heart break helps him in emoting a poignant scene better on screen. Sushant answered that how would one emote something until and unless they know that emotion better, and that drawing on one's real life personal setbacks definitely helps.

Talking about MS Dhoni: The Untold Story, Sushant told us the funniest thing that he discovered about Dhoni. He said that Dhoni sleeps a lot (like a baby in fact) and that for that such a big personality, Dhoni is calm, composed.

After the conversation, the host and the actor went on to play a few fun rounds of 'five seconds rule' and it was Sushant who aced it.
