Rajkummar Rao’s style of acting speaks for itself. He has always managed to wow the audience with gripping stories and his spectacular screen presence. As per the latest reports, Rajkummar has been roped in to play the lead in Anubhav Sinha & Bhushan Kumar’s next, a socio-political drama titled Bheed.
Bheed is jointly produced by Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series and Anubhav Sinha’s Benaras Mediaworks. It will mark Sinha’s reunion with Bhushan Kumar after the success of Thappad, and looking at the track record of films that Abhinav has given us in the past, I am sure this is going to be exciting!
Sharing his excitement, Rajkummar says-
I am thrilled to be working with Anubhav Sinha. It’s a matter of great honour and privilege to collaborate with a filmmaker who has such a distinct voice. Reuniting with Bhushan Kumar feels like coming back on home turf after the success of Ludo last year. I have always found myself gravitating towards stories that trigger conversation. Even as an entertainer, I want my work to get people thinking. This is an important subject and the character needs me to stretch myself as an artist, beyond my comfort zone. I can’t wait to start shooting and lose myself in this universe.
Bhushan Kumar says-
Anubhav and I have a long standing relationship since Tum Bin. And every outing together is even more exciting than the last one. Thappad is a film I am incredibly proud of and I can’t wait for Bheed to kick off. It’s another of Anubhav’s deeply stirring stories and I am so proud to join hands with him yet again on this one. Raj is a wonderful actor and I can’t think of anyone better to pull off a film like this.
Anubhav Sinha shares-
Bheed is one of those titles that the whole team jumps at the moment you propose it. To me, casting was crucial. Raj is a very intriguing actor. He is one of the very few actors who can be so successfully transparent in a story. There always was a keen desire to work with him and I am looking forward to it. I am honoured to have a solid collaborator like Bhushan on my side who is such a strong pillar and a sturdy sounding board.
I am super excited for this film, can’t wait to see what the entire cast has in store for us!
