Rajkummar Rao continues to make us believe that real talent will shine minus big budgets, fancy sets or industry mentors. In the last two years, he has delivered contrasting performances in Newton, Bareilly Ki Barfi, Trapped, Omerta and Stree. While Stree went on to become the sleeper hit of the year, it also became his first Rs 100 crore film. As the actor has entered the 100 core club, he is being compared with Ranbir Kapoor and Ranveer Singh.
When asked about the comparisons being made, Rajkummar said, “I take it as a compliment. I’m a huge fan of both Ranbir and Ranveer, they are doing tremendously good. I’m looking forward to Gully Boy and Brahmastra. It’s overwhelming, I take it with a lot of gratitude because you’re comparing me with two great actors.”
Rajkummar Rao, at an event for Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga, further said that he would like to grow with every film and not worry about the competition. “I never see competition in any art form, especially acting as you are dealing with emotions. I can’t say I cry better than the other actor. You just have to grow with every film as an actor and let people decide what they want to say. I just want to grow and push myself with every film,” he said.
Meanwhile, Rajkummar Rao is part of the 2019’s highly anticipated films including, Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga, Mental Hai Kya, Made In China, Turram Khan and Imli. Starring alongside Sonam Kapoor, Anil Kapoor, Juhi Chawla, Rajkummar Rao’s next Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga will release on February 1, 2019.
