Rajkumar Rao on Priyanka Chopra & Shahrukh Khan
Rajkummar Rao is one of the underrated actors in Bollywood. Known for his acting more than looks, Rao will be soon seen in The White Tiger, alongside Priyanka Chopra Jones and Adarsh Gourav. The film based on the Booker Prize-winning novel by Aravind Adiga, under the same name, is directed by Ramin Bahrani and will be released on Netflix on January 22.
Rajkumar while talking in an interview about working with diva Priyanka Chopra Jones said, "Priyanka is phenomenal. She is a very chilled out person, a global star who never made us feel that she was the biggest star on our set. I have always been a big admirer of her work. It's fun to work with great actors as it enhances your performance and Priyanka did just that to me. She even helped me out in my scenes. I look forward to working with her more and hopefully, it will happen soon.
Rajkumar also spilled the beans about his inspiration in Bollywood.
Talking further he said, "I am an actor because of Shahrukh sir. Seeing him on screen made me want to join the industry because I could connect with his journey. He taught me that if you have a dream and if you’re ready to work hard, the dream will come true. We all know how charming he is and how he makes everyone feel special. There is so much to learn from him; be it on-screen or off it.
Rajkummar isn't over his obsession with Shahrukh Khan. He has often spoken about his love for SRK.
There is so much to learn from Shahrukh, both as an actor and as a person, he says. After the success of Queen, he finally met Shahrukh. “I was shooting in Mehboob. And I heard that Shahrukh sir was also shooting there. So I thought this was my chance––maybe I could go meet him. I sent a message across to him– I didn’t think he’d know me, but, he called me to his trailer – he knew my entire bio," said enthralled Rajkumar.
“He made me feel so special. I was already a fan, but that day I was probably his biggest fan. I was nervous and in awe throughout. I once spoke to his posters...and now there he was, in front of me. How can I even explain what that felt like?” he said about his idol with a grin.
