Bollywood actor Rajkumar Rao’s work is finally getting recognition from fans as well as filmmakers. He is probably one of the most demanded actors of 2018 as he already has grabbed a lot of offers this year, most of them are with A-listers. If we start the count, Rajkumar will be first seen in Fanney Khan alongside Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Anil Kapoor. He will then again be seen with Anil Kapoor in the film titled Ek Ladki Ko Dekha To Aisa Lga which will also star Sonam Kapoor and Juhi Chawla.
Moving on, he will also be seen in Shraddha Kapoor starrer horror comedy Stree. He is also shooting for Mental Hai Kya with Kangana Ranaut. We will also see him in Made in China alonside rising star Mouni Roy. Apart from all this, he has also signed two more films titled Patralekha, and Imli.
It would not be wrong to say that the stardom of Rajkumar Rao has begun and there is no looking back now. Rajkumar is now for his flawless acting and choosing the most unique scripts with makes a connection with the audience. For him, story of the film plays the most important role. In an interview, he said, “I believe that content is the only thing that works. For me choosing a film like Fanney Khan or Stree, is all about the story. I do not consider if I am offered the lead role or not but I only say yes to a film if I believe in the story.”
Explaining further, he said, “Films like Shahid or Omerta have also been praised widely. I still get a lot of appreciation for a film like Shahid despite knowing it from the start that such films only cater to a niche audience. For me, choosing the story is more important than it belonging to the parallel or commercial genre. As an artist, I want both kind of films to work well at the box-office.”
He further shared his desire to do an action film in coming future. Rao said, “Nobody thought I could make them laugh until Bareilly Ki Barfi. I certainly believe that just one film will change that perception and I would love to explore action cinema if the right script comes along.”
He further said that he will go to any extent to fit the role. He said, “Like Omerta and Trapped, if I need to be in a particular shape for an action film; I will perhaps make 8-pack abs too.”
Well, we are eagerly looking forwards to the upcoming films of Rao.
