The actor discusses his commitment to fasting and its impact on his life and career, inspired by his mother’s devotion to Santoshi Maa.

During the promotions for his upcoming film, Mr. & Mrs. Mahi, Rajkummar Rao shared a heartfelt tradition he continues in memory of his late mother, Kamalesh Yadav. In an interview with Curly Tales, Rao revealed his dedication to fasting every Friday, a practice he adopted from his mother. “I keep a fast on Fridays. It is something my mother would do for Santoshi Maa. I started following her ever since I was a kid…since I was 16…and it has been a part of my life,” he said.

Rao, whose mother passed away in 2016, spoke about how this tradition affects his daily life, particularly while managing the demands of his acting career. He acknowledged the challenges, noting that fasting can sometimes make his hectic schedule more difficult. “Sometimes, I do not eat any meals, and sometimes, when I am working and I need to put in a lot of energy that day, I have one meal at night," Rao shared. Despite these challenges, he remains committed to this practice as a way to honour his mother's memory.

The actor often expresses his deep love and admiration for his mother. On her death anniversary in March, Rao posted a poignant photo from his wedding to Patralekhaa, showing him blowing a kiss to a picture of his late mother. His caption read, “You will always be the best mother in this world Maa. I know your blessings are always with me. Miss you every day. I love you forever." This emotional tribute underscores the profound impact his mother continues to have on his life.

Rajkummar Rao is gearing up for the release of Mr & Mrs Mahi on May 31, where he stars alongside Janhvi Kapoor. The film, directed by Sharan Sharma, features Rao as an aspiring cricketer and Kapoor as a doctor with a passion for cricket. This film follows Rao's earlier release in May, Srikanth, which received favourable reviews. With a busy year ahead, Rao's commitment to his mother’s tradition remains a significant and touching part of his personal and professional life.
