2017 was undoubtedly a great year for Rajkummar Rao. Rao not only proved that he is one of the most talented actors in Bollywood, but also showed the world that he is here for the long run. From ‘Newton’, ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’, ‘Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana’, to ‘Behen Hogi Teri’ and ‘Bose’; Rao literally ruled the box-office this year with his back to back brilliant performances.
And he completely deserves all the awards and respect in the world because this man works really hard and gives his all to the movies he works on. Earlier this year, he posted his transformation pictures on Instagram, which proves that things were never easy for him and that he has achieved all this only and only through hard work and dedication.
#AnActorsLife #Building a character. From Behen Hogi Teri to Trapped to currently shooting for #Bose. Nothing gives me more high than preparing and living a character.
After impressing us with his exceptional performances, Rao is back to make 2018 scarier for us with his upcoming horror-comedy flick alongside Shraddha Kapoor. The movie is directed by Amar Kaushik and written by Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK. For quite some time, reports of Rajkummar and Shraddha featuring together in a movie were making rounds. The news was further confirmed when Shraddha posted a picture of her with Rajkummar Rao, teasing us about the movie.
