Sushant Singh Rajput becomes the first Bollywood actor to buy a land on the far side of the moon. The nerd in him has to lead the actor to take his fascination for space to another level.
The 32-year-old actor has now acquired a piece of land in a region called the Mare Muscoviense, or the “Sea of Muscovy”. Interestingly, Sushant would be starring in Chanda Mama Door Ke and this could be a unique way to promote it.
Talking about his decision, Sushant said in a statement,“I would like to believe that the different ways we answer questions ‘are’ the answers of those questions. So, the variations in the way we punctuate the narratives; the nuance, would create the different versions of reality in future. My mother used to tell me that my life will be the story that I will tell myself. I am just punctuating a nuance right now and already am, over the Moon!”
Sushant’s social media activity is a proof of his curiosity about the outer space. The actor is already an owner of an advanced telescope called the Meade 14” LX600, which can help him keep an eye on this prime piece of real estate from his home on Earth. The actor’s land is on the blind side of the Earth.
Sushant has bought the property from the International Lunar Lands Registry, making him the first Bollywood actor to do so, though Shah Rukh Khan has already been gifted a piece on the Moon by a fan.
Rajput got the property registered on June 25 but it may not amount to a legal ownership as an international treaty states that “outer space, including the Moon and other celestial bodies”, are the common heritage of mankind and cannot be owned by any nation.
