Actor Rajkumar Rao has always been a delight for the critics. It helps that this year has been especially kind to the actor. From his cutting-edge performance in Trapped, to Newton, which got selected for the Academy Awards, it’s safe to say that his plate has been full. In a chat, he speaks about his upcoming film, the year gone by and more…

What losses have your broken ankle caused?
I lost three days when I was in the hospital; otherwise, everything is on track. I have been dubbing and also promoting Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana. The only unfortunate part is that we had to push Fanney Khan’s shoot.

 

You seem to be going through an exceptionally prolific year…
It’s certainly one of the best years of my career. I feel very blessed that I’m part of all these wonderful films. I’ll try and keep doing different films and push myself with every film.

Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana is another small town rom-com. Isn’t that becoming a bit of a problem?
Yes, it is set in a small town, but it’s not your usual small town rom-com. As an actor, I try to keep it as versatile as possible. About 70 to 80 per cent our country lives in small towns and they definitely feel a connect to these stories and these characters.

Hansal Mehta’s Omerta, has also been received warmly at the Mumbai Film Festival, Busan and Toronto Film Festival…
Omerta is a powerful film. It took a toll on my mental health, but Hansal sir pushed me to my limits. It’s the story of an antagonist, so it was a first for us. Toronto, MAMI and Busan are all major festivals and I’m really happy that we had such an overwhelming response.
