Rajkumar Rao is one of the greatest actors in the industry. In just a few years he has set a benchmark for other actors in Bollywood. He has won National Award Best Actor award for the movie Shahid. The actor had a perfectly balanced film carrier with content driven meaningful films.
In an interview, Rajkumar Rao said that he as an individual has not changed but people around him have changed. Here’s what exactly he said, “I am the same person who came to this city Mumbai a few years ago to act in Hindi films and I am just continuing doing that. I did not change as a person. All that happens is people change around me.
"When you are successful, the perception of the people around you changes. If I do a variety of work, people notice me differently and that is what is happening. I am fortunate to get these opportunities.”
The actor had done marvellous movies like ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’, ‘Newton’, ‘Omerta’, ‘Aligarh’, ‘Trapped’ and ‘Kai Po Che’.
When the actor was asked about his judgement of the scripts, he said, “My parameter of judging a script has not changed over the years. I still go for a script where the story interests me. Yes, there are times where I might go wrong; say, out of five scripts, I might go wrong on one."But that is only natural and the ratio is not bad I guess. I try to bring all my sincerity to the character I play. That way I am dedicated,"
Telling about his upcoming movie, he said, "It is an interesting genre that has not been explored because it is not just a comedy or horror film. It is damn funny and scary in parts.
"So for an audience, it is a good dose of entertainment. The overall character that I am playing in the film was very exciting for me to explore, so I did not take time to say 'yes' to the film."
He tells about working for the first time with Shraddha, “"I know Shraddha from my 'Kai Po Che' days and we always wanted to work together. This script was apt for us to collaborate. We had a good time working together."
Rajkumar Roa shares the way he observes Indian cinema, “: "I think over the years, the respect for Indian cinema among the global audience is growing thanks to some of our wonderful filmmakers like Amit Masurkar, Ritesh Batra and others who are making films like 'Newton' and 'Lunchbox'.
"These films are travelling the world and, of course, the perception is changing about our stories and our cinema that is going beyond the song and dance saga. Our stories are more character-driven now and have a more emotional connection to the global audience."
The movie, ‘Stree’ is set to release on 31st August.
