Rajkummar’s ‘Steve Jobs hangover’
After earning laurels for his portrayal of lawyer Shahi Azmi in biopic Shahid (2012), actor Rajkummar Rao (right) wants to act in a biopic on late Steve Jobs (inset), the co-founder of one of the world’s leading IT giants. It seems that the 30-year-old has been deeply influenced by Jobs after he read his biography, and is hoping that someone makes a biopic on him in Bollywood. “Rajkummar is really encouraged by the achievements of Steve Jobs, and he has expressed his desire to play the lead role if a Bollyood biopic is made on him,” says a source close to the actor.
Rajkummar confirmed this, saying, “Ever since I’ve read Steve Jobs’ biography, I’ve been under a Steve Jobs hangover. He was a visionary who came across as mild and sophisticated but he was a super enthusiastic guy when it came to work. I can relate to him in many ways, adding, “Also, I’m a fan of his company’s products and wanted to know more about the guy who made all this possible,” he adds.
