Sushant describes Drag as a performing art and not just cross-dressing. It's all performing art wherein you have everything from the way you walk, talk, dress and perform is all a part of the drag.
When asked about the Drag culture, Sushant explained, "We always had artists who performed as the opposite sex. You have men dressing as women for Ram Leela. India is so rich in culture and we should celebrate drag as it is a part of our culture for years."
He describes his journey on the show 'Sa Re Ga Ma Pa' as an amazing experience. "I had a blast, an absolute blast! Because I don't think that everybody was ready for what I had to give them, Rani didn't come to play, she came to slay."

Sushant also added, "My journey as Rani on the show 'Sa Re Ga Ma Pa' was historic because nobody else has been on the show as a drag or from LGBTQ community or in a dual voice. So I had a blast! Legendary Bappi Lahiri sang with me and praised me. He also said I was the real Ko-He-Nur of the country.
Sushant said, "I have learnt a lot and I think once I came out of the closet I was free and felt more comfortable with myself. I could offer so much more of myself than I would if I was still inside the closet."
