Rajkummar Rao is a name in Bollywood to reckon with. He started off as a character actor and today, he is in the league of the biggies Bollywood has to offer. With a series of hits in his kitty, Raj is surely living the Bollywood life, king size. But is he, really?
Recently, in an interview with Hindustan Times, the actor was asked about all the success coming his way and Raj made quite a few revelations.
Eight years back, Raj starred in Love Sex Aur Dhokha and was paid 11, 000 for his role. Will he still continue to work at that amount?
“But we’re talking about LSD, which was eight years ago! In my defence, I’d argue, ‘Abhi mehengai bahut badh gayi hai, yaar!’”
I like walking down the streets. I have to cover my face when I do now. I don’t mind getting pictures clicked at a coffee shop but after a point, I want to sit and have my coffee quietly. People say I’ve started looking good these days but that’s just perception and good photography.
The day I feel this particular act is what I should keep doing because it sells, I will be scared. That is the death of an actor.
This was the most honest reply we’ve ever read, Raj. Keep doing that amazing work!
