And it happened before three years back when I lost my mother. That time also I was shooting for Newton. And I went back the next day to shoot for Newton. And the same thing happened here as I was shooting for RoohiAfza and I came back the next day to shoot for RoohiAfza. Because I know my parents are very proud of me for becoming an actor. That’s the only thing they wanted me to do which gave them so much happiness.”
Rajkummar Rao further said, “I am so glad that when my father was in the hospital and the trailer was just getting ready and I requested Dino (Dinesh Vijan) that ‘I want to show my trailer to my father because doctors were saying things’. He was very kind and he just sent me the link. And I am so happy that he saw the trailer and I am sure he will watch the film as well. His blessings are there.”
