Rajkummar Rao steals the show yet again in the sleeper hit Stree , that went on to create a splash at the box office . This comes fresh on the heels of his last hit Bareilly Ki Barfi , another game changing film after Newton , that went on to become India’s official entry to the Oscars.
The young star has catapulted to the top in a short span of time, thanks to his spectacular success ratio that boasts of films that have struck gold at the box office, while receiving massive critical acclaim.
Slow and steady , Rajkummar Rao , earned the reputation of being part of films that promise to be both substantial yet entertaining and his recent blockbuster Stree stands testimony to that.
All praise for Rajkummar says his Stree co-star Shraddha Kapoor, “Everybody knows how talented Raj is, he is the finest actor in our industry. Raj has such a unique connection with his audience and it is one of a kind.He is one of those rare actors who can’t be replaced, he truly stands out in his own way. Raj is contributing in a very big way to the evolution of India Cinema which I think is very rare. He does it so effortlessly.”
Talking about how the actor was the first and only choice for the film say Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK, the writers and co-producers of the horror-comedy , ” Right from the early stage of the film, we knew Rajkummar will ace this role. Even before anything was formed, the screenplay or the director coming on board, we approached Raj with the story and he loved it.”
Adds director Amar Kaushik, ” Raj and I would often meet during film festivals and when I had to choose an actor for the character Vicky (in Stree) it had to be Raj. When I told him that he was playing a tailor’s part, his immediate reaction was, ‘Okay, send a sewing machine to my house, I will learn tailoring’. Raj makes your work easy”.
Impressed with Rao’s versatility after watching him first hand , producer Dinesh Vijan , went on to cast him in his next , Made in China.
“Raj is a versatile and highly credible actor. He has done a fabulous job in Stree. When he was working on that film, we narrated this concept to him and let’s just say he refused to let it go!”adds Dinesh Vijan
