Story highlights

She went on to add that she is not giving anyone advice and everyone should do what they want in life.

Shraddha Kapoor and Sushant Singh Rajput are now gearing up for the release of their film together titled ‘Chhichhore’. 

As she is seen busy promoting the film, Shraddha opened up on why she dropped out of college for making her Bollywood debut. She said, “Actually, pehle plan thi ki education aur college khatam karungi, phir acting mein aaungi. Lekin bohot impatient ho gayi main. Wapas aa gayi toh offers aane lage. Auditions ke offers, film offers nahi. Toh mujhe laga ki chalo, drop out karti hoon.” 

She went on to add that she is not giving anyone advice and everyone should do what they want in life.

When Sushant was asked about his college days, he said, “Achcha student tha main, Delhi College of Engineering mein padta tha. Lekin main first semester mein hostel se nikaal diya gaya. Humare college mein rule tha ki 7 baje ke baad agar aaoge hostel mein, toh entry nahi milti.” Sushant had completed three years of the four-year course. 

Shraddha and Sushant are currently busy on a promotional spree for their upcoming film 'Chhichhore' that also features Varun Sharma, Prateik Babbar, Tahir Raj Bhasin and Naveen Polishetty among others. The film is directed by Nitesh Tiwari and produced by Sajid Nadiadwala under the banner of Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment.

Shraddha was last seen in recently released Prabhas starrer ‘Saaho’ that is doing good business at the box office. In its day 3 box office collection, it has beaten 'Kabir Singh', 'Bharat', 'Mission Mangal'. 

Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter to write, ”Saaho sets the BO on fire... Shows big gains on Day 3... Packs a phenomenal total in its opening weekend... North and East India are exceptional, other circuits fantastic too... Fri 24.40 cr, Sat 25.20 cr, Sun 29.48 cr. Total: Rs 79.08 cr Nett BOC. India biz. #Hindi version.”
