I’M HAPPY WITH HOW MY FILM JOUR­NEY IS SHAP­ING UP: RAJKUMMAR

HT City - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Last year, work sat­is­fac­tion came ac­tor Rajkummar Rao’s way in the form of his films, Trapped, Be­hen Hogi Teri, Bareilly Ki Barfi, and New­ton. He’s hop­ing to de­rive the same “hap­pi­ness” from his projects this year. And mind you, there are quite a few.

“Fan­ney Khan is my sec­ond re­lease of 2018 af­ter Omerta, and the trailer of Stree will be launched soon. Af­ter that, I have Ek Ladki Ko Dekha To Aisa Laga (ELKDTAL). So, I’m very happy [with] the way my film jour­ney is shap­ing up. I just wish this year also brings the same amount of hap­pi­ness and work sat­is­fac­tion,” says Rajkummar.

On the re­sponse to the Fan­ney Khan trailer, which was re­leased re­cently, he says, “I’ve al­ways been a big fan of Anil Kapoor and Aish­warya Rai Bachchan... Peo­ple are prais­ing Anil sir’s char­ac­ter in the film, and the chem­istry be­tween Aish­warya Rai and me is also be­ing ap­pre­ci­ated.”

Af­ter the Rakeysh Om­prakash Mehra film, Anil and Rajkummar will share screen space in ELKDTAL. “Peo­ple are say­ing there’s a new cou­ple in town in the form of both of us, and I am com­pletely okay with it.”

There’s an­other film — Men­tal Hai Kya, along­side his Queen (2013) co-star Kan­gana Ra­naut. Rajkummar has just re­turned from a Lon­don shoot­ing sched­ule of the film. On work­ing with Kan­gana again, he says, “It is a lot of fun work­ing with her... We are re­ally good friends.”
