Magna House was abuzz when actor par excellence RAJKUMMAR RAo visited Magna Lounge to unveil the May 2018 cover of India’s biggest and best film magazine Stardust, the cover of which was graced by him.
Nari Hira, Chairman, Magna Publishing Co Ltd and Sumita Chakraborty, Editor, Stardust, joined fabulous actor Rajkummar Rao on the dais. The emcee for the event was Sharbani Mukherjee. Dressed rather nattily in casual avatar, Rajkummar Rao unveiled the alluring cover amidst loud applause from the audience. Once the floor was declared open, the media sent a volley of questions to the National Award winner but Rajkummar fielded each one of them very well. The Stardust cover headline stated, ‘Rajkummar Rao on being the industry’s biggest game-changer’, and when the Omerta actor was asked about this, he said, “It is a big thing and definitely a big honour especially as I used to read Stardust Magazine as a child and now being on the cover is such a huge thing.” He was then asked about his experience of working with director Hansal Mehta, Rajkummar said, “It is indeed a wonderful experience working with him every time and he has become more of a family to me now.” When asked whether having a godfather could have made things easier, the actor jokingly said that the only Godfather he actually looked up to were - the DVDs of the film GodfatherI,II and III!
As for working with beau Patralekhaa and possible wedding bells, Rajkummar said that he would love to work with her if they got a proper script but denied the probability of getting married any time soon. He said that he was currently married to his work and would like to continue that association. The event ended on a happy note with the shutterbugs scrambling to shoot the talented actor.
