‘RAJKUMMAR IS MY EXPRESSION ON CELLULOID’
After working together on several films such as Shahid, City Lights, and Aligarh, filmmaker Hansal Mehta (top) and actor Rajkummar
Rao (above) now share a strong bond. Mehta says Rajkummar Rao is very special to him as the actor expresses his creative vision on-screen. Mehta, who has also directed Rao in his next, feels when an actor and a director embrace their relationship, it shows in their films.
“I think he is the best actor in his generation. Beyond that, Rajkummar is my expression on celluloid. If I am an artist, then I express because I express through him. Rajkummar has changed my life,” Mehta said, adding that they “transform” each other, through their films. The duo will also work together on a web-series based on the life of Subhas Chandra Bose.
