Ra­jkum­mar’s ‘Steve Jobs hang­over’

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment - YASHIKA MATHUR

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.
