BOLLYWOOD – Rajkumar Rao is the recipient of one national award and three Filmfare awards. He is known for his versatile roles. Be it the character of a one-sided lover, or a villain or a liberation fighter, Rao has verified that he can do it all and in a very experienced manner.
Actor Rajkummar Rao says he wants to stay away from the comfort zone of playing to the gallery despite knowing that some of his “gestures” might influence the audience.
Actor Rajkummar Rao says he is a big fan of Irrfan Khan, and adds that he would love to accomplish something like the filmography the late actor had. “I am a huge fan of Irrfan sir. The kind of filmography he had, the work he has done and the performances he has given – I would love to achieve something like that. That would be great,” Rajkummar told.
Irrfan is one of several actors he would love to take a masterclass from. Nonetheless, although Rajkummar regularly garners accolades for his roles, he feels he is not in a position to give masterclass to aspiring actors.
“Trust me I am not in a position to do that, and honestly I don’t feel that I have done anything special to give a masterclass. I think there are way better actors, there are way more people out here from whom I would like to take a masterclass,” the actor said.
Irrfan Khan, recognized for his accomplishment in both Indian and foreign films, passed away at the age of 54 in April 2020 struggling with a rare form of cancer.
