He is a very passionate actor and that’s why we get along very well. We’re both very passionate about our work, and he is very hard working,” Bhumi says, adding, “It’s fun working with someone as talented as him because then you have to up your game. You are put in a challenging spot and have to push yourself to work harder when you are cast opposite an actor like Sushant.”
