Reportedly, ever since the actor has tasted success in Bollywood, there have been murmurs of Sushant’s high-handed behaviour. Reports of the actor becoming too big for his boots have made headlines often.

When he was asked about it by a tabloid in an interview, he said, “I am a middle-class boy and didn’t find success easily. I had always been acknowledged for my performances, but with Dhoni (biopic), I tasted success at the box office as well. The film earned a lot of money, but everything didn’t come to my pocket."

Sushant defends himself by adding, "Now [post Dhoni’s success], if I am doing the same 10 things in my personal life that I did earlier, people will have problems with at least two of them. They will have a long discussion on my arrogance based on my body language or the way I speak to a journalist. But I am still the same person.”

Rajput confessed that he doesn’t believe in chasing stardom and money. Concludes the Raabta actor, “When I was doing TV, I reached a point where I didn’t have to think about money. Even right now, I don’t think about it. You can take away all the money and glory, and I will still perform. In fact, I am willing to pay and perform. Fame and money cannot change me. I got myself a nice house and my dream car, but that doesn’t make me any different from the rest in the business. So I want to know what reason can I give myself to be arrogant?”
