Mumbai: He is just two films old, but actor Sushant Singh Rajput says he has already realised the power of cinema, and how it impacts the lives of people.

The 27-year-old, whose second movie 'Shuddh Desi Romance' released Friday, says his source of inspiration is Bollywood badshah Shah Rukh Khan.

"I told Shah Rukh when I met him that I'm an actor because of him," Sushant said in a statement.

"When I used to watch his films earlier, I used to feel that acting as a profession is so powerful, you can convince people of something which you're not. Or maybe it's so larger than life and you can hide behind all these interesting and exciting characters. But I didn't take acting seriously then," he added.

Sushant, who made his Bollywood debut with 'Kai Po Che!', made the confession on UTV Stars' show 'Breakfast To Dinner'. The episode featuring Sushant will air on Sunday.
