His line-up of movies is as eclectic as his reputation as one of the most talented young performers in Bollywood.
It seems that 2017 is going to be Rajkummar Rao’s year as he has five films releasing this year, the latest being Vikramaditya Motwane’s “Trapped”.
The 32-year-old actor will be seen playing a man struggling for survival as he gets stuck in a high-rise in the movie.
“I am very happy. As a creative person this is what I look for. I feel complete as an actor as I am exploring something new, something exciting everyday,” Rajkummar told PTI about this phase in his career.
Besides “Trapped”, which released this Friday, the actor will be seen in “Newton”, “Behen Hogi Teri”, “Bareilly Ki Barfi” and “Omerta”, where he has teamed up with frequent collaborator, Hansal Mehta.
Rajkummar says Motwane, best known for “Udaan” and “Lootera”, was always on his wish-list as he really appreciates the way the director captures human emotions.
“I always wanted to work with Vikramaditya Motwane. He deals with human emotions so beautifully. ‘Trapped’ is also an emotional story, though it is one of its kind and something that has not been tried before.”
