Right now, Rajkummar is riding high due to his success with recent movies such as Newton, Trapped and Bareilly Ki Barfi. If insecurities overshadow Rajkummar Rao at any point then he may not be able to stay truthful to his performance. Release of back to back movies is on the cards for Rajkummar Rao at the moment.
During an interview, Rajkummar Rao has said “I always feel secure. I can’t be a pure actor if I feel insecure. I can’t let other things take over my love for acting. For me its a giving art. It is not something which I am doing for myself. I am doing it for my co-actors unless it is something like ‘Trapped’. Acting for me is giving to your co-actors.” Instead of insecurities, nervousness troubles him more.
Later on, he has added “There are times when I do feel very nervous when I start a film. And I feel very nervous before the release. I do get stuck in some scenes but that’s very natural and human. It happens to all the artists in the world.” On changing definition of Bollywood hero, Rajkummar Rao has told us that it has helped the actor like him to get roles. He enumerates “They are the ones who are writing such characters and audiences are interested in watching them. People are falling in love with characters now and that is why writers are creating such stories. I am really happy that such stories are getting prominence. That is the reason why actors like me are getting the chances to portray great characters on-screen. I think it’s the relatability factor which works between me and the audiences. I am one of them. They connect with me as they see a part of them in me.”
Sharing his excitement about the movie Fanney Khan, Rajkummar tells us “People like Anil sir (Anil Kapoor), Amit ji (Amitabh Bachchan) inspire me to keep moving forward and apart from that, the fact that I love my job as an actor keeps pushing me ahead. I never had a plan B. I honestly wanted to be an actor and dedicate my life to movies”
On acting with Anil Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Omerta actor has said “It is a great story and I loved my part. It was very exciting to work with Anil sir and Aishwarya. It was a fascinating experience. My whole romantic side with Aishwarya was really fun. It was great. My character is in awe of her in the film. And I am in awe of her in real-life. It was a very weird combination.”
Release of Fanney Khan is scheduled on 3rd August in your nearest theatres.
