Sushant Singh Rajput was at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) in 2017 as part of his prep for Viki Rajani’s Chanda Mama Door Ke, India’s first space odyssey, directed by Sanjay Puran Singh Chauhan. The film based on a team of astronauts whose mission brings the country together, unfortunately never took off.
Sushant had started training at the center in July 2017, part of which included experiencing zero gravity, docking the shuttle to the ISS, flying a space shuttle simulator and training in other simulations programmes at NASA.
The actor had been going all out to get under the skin of his character and had impressed the NASA technical team with his dedication and enthusiasm.
Rajput also visited the U. S. Space & Rocket Center. The U.S. Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama is a museum operated by the government of Alabama, showcasing rockets, achievements, and artifacts of the U.S. space program.
