Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment - PTI

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.
