New Delhi [India], Nov.12 (ANI): Bollywood's ace choreographer Shiamak Davar knew it back then that "there was something special about Sushant Singh Rajput" and is now "extremely proud of where he has reached."

Sushant is one actor who has proved that dreams do get fulfilled. From being a background dancer, to a television actor, he has now hit the ball out of the stadium with his latest release 'MS Dhoni:The Untold Story'.

Not many people know that the 'Raabta' actor used to dance as part of Shiamak Davar's dance company just like Shahid Kapoor, Varun Dhawan and a few others in the industry today.

Expressing his pride on his journey from background dancer to a star, Davar says, "When Sushant wanted to take up engineering, I told him, 'Why don't you take up acting? You're fun, you have a good understanding of the craft'. I felt there was something special about him back then.

"He said, 'I don't know... education is important for me'. I said, 'Just try, if you fail it is okay, but at least try'. He listened to me and then he got a TV role in 'Pavitra Rishta' and then he went on to doing films," he added.

The 30-year old actor made his Bollywood debut with 'Kai Po Che' and was last seen and appreciated for his acting in 'MS Dhoni:The Untold Story'.

""In 'MS Dhoni..', he was fabulous, beyond words. The thing I like about him is that he is a very natural actor and a good dancer as well. I am very proud of him and of where he has reached," said the star chorographer. (ANI)
