“Chanda Mama Door Ke” Becomes First Hindi Film to be Shot at NASA

New Delhi: Sanjay Puran Singh’s “Chanda Mama Door Ke,” India’s first epic space odyssey with a massive cast of Sushant Singh Rajput, R. Madhavan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui among others, will be the first Bollywood film to be shot at NASA.

Produced by Eros International and Viki Rajani and directed by National award-winner Sanjay Puran Singh (of “Lahore” fame), “Chanda Mama Door Ke” features actor Sushant Singh Rajput as an astronaut. Known to get under the skin of all his characters, Sushant is going the extra mile to prepare for the role of an astronaut in the movie.
Sushant is currently at NASA’s Space and Rocket Centre at Alabama in USA.

According to sources close to the film, the actor is preparing for the role of an astronaut by participating in workshops and various training regimes.

Last month, Sushant had shared a picture from NASA, in which he was seated inside a ‘life size’ rocket. The actor wrote: “From a miniature Rocket to a life size one. This grown up kid will never cease to dream. My mother always wanted her ‘Sushant in Space’.”

Nawazuddin also plays an astronaut in the film and will join the shoot after completing his other projects.
