Rajkummar Rao is gearing up for the release of his forthcoming film Fanney Khan also starring Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Anil Kapoor.
Acting is the ‘art of giving’ for him and Rajkummar Rao said that he would not be truthful to this belief if insecurities overpower him as a performer. Rao is the man of the moment in Bollywood with back-to-back projects and while he calls his routine ‘hectic’, he is not complaining.
“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 it’s 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,” Rao said in an interview. Rao believes the change in the definition of a ‘hero’ in Hindi cinema has opened a lot of avenues for actors like him and he credits writers, new age directors and audiences for this shift.
“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.” The actor is currently one of the busiest stars in the film industry with films like ‘Fanney Khan’, ‘Stree’, ‘5 Weddings’, ‘Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga’ in his kitty, but he does not mind switching from one set to the other.
The actor is excited about his upcoming film, ‘Fanney Khan’, which also features Kapoor, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Pihu Sand and Divya Dutta.
“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.”
The film has been produced by T-Series, Anil Kapoor Films & Communications Network and Rakeys Omprakash Mehra Pictures. It will be released on August 3.
