Actor Sushant Singh Rajput had expressed his fascination for the outer space several times. He had stated that he was extremely interested in stars, constellations and galaxies ever since he was a child.
He owned the Meade 14″ LX600, a highly-priced telescope through which he could see the rings of Saturn. He also posted about the same on Instagram as he wrote, “It’s one of the most advanced telescopes in the world and I’m going to be able to see Saturn’s rings through it.”
Not many know that the actor had visited NASA to prepare for his role as an astronaut in Chanda Mama Door Ke. That’s not all. Sushant was also the only Indian who owned a piece of land on the moon. He bought the land in a region called “The Mare Muscoviense” or “The Sea of Muscovy” from the International Lunar Lands Registry.
Besides outer spaces, Sushant was a bike enthusiast as well. He owned the BMW K 1300 R motorcycle. He also owned the Boeing 737 Fixed Based Flight Simulator and posted about it on his Instagram with a lot of excitement as he wrote “#LovingMyDream 1/150 ! ‘GET A FLYING LICENSE !!’ Buying this beauty (Boeing 737 Fixed Base Flight Simulator) to start loving/living my first of 150 dreams; to fly.”
