We couldn’t agree more with director/producer Mahesh Bhatt when he chose Rajkummar Rao as his favorite amongst the new breed of actors in Bollywood on Karan Johar’s chat show. And the ‘Shahid’ actor has proved yet again that he truly is someone who never shies away from taking risks.
The National Award winning actor will be seen playing the role of a transgender in Rahul Mukerjee’s Bengali film ‘Aami Saira Bano’ and the first look of the actor has got us hooked to it, even though the movie struggles to find financial backing!
Joining the likes of versatile actors like Sadashiv Amrapurkar, Ashutosh Rana and Paresh Rawal, here’s what the actor had to say about this role in the film:
“It’s a story about a boy who is a girl from inside and is drawn towards the transgender community who rechristen him Saira Bano. It was a fascinating story and character and challenged me as an actor.”
Rajkummar will be next seen in ‘Shimla Mirchi’, ‘Trapped’, ‘Omerta’, ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’ and ‘Love Sonia’.
