He might be one of the most sought-after stars in Bollywood today but there’s still something he is waiting for. Actor Rajkummar Rao has proven his mettle of acting with many on-screen performances of-late and now he wants to do an action film. The actor has already stepped into the genre of horror-comedy, romance, drama, thriller and everything else in between. However, a strict action film is something that he wishes to do someday.
Rajkummar, whose last on-screen appearance was Stree, spoke about the same in his latest interview with a magazine. He said he wants to keep reinventing his craft and ‘change things up fast’ to maintain a fresh essence. The talented actor added that a ‘high-octane action drama’ is something that’s on his wishlist. He further said he doesn’t overthink when it comes to choosing films but follows his ‘gut’. Rajkummar was quoted by the magazine saying, “I just know I’ve got to listen to my gut, to act, to do. Do my bit, and do it for the right reasons.”
The actor also took a moment to appreciate the boom in the digital market in India. He especially took actor Arjun Mathur’s name and mentioned he’s happy for him as the actor has finally found his due popularity with his performance in Zoya Akhtar’s web-show Made In Heaven. He said, “I feel very happy for Arjun Mathur. He’s such a good actor and now he’s done such brilliant work in ‘Made In Heaven’ and people are talking about him.” He then talked about the writers and directors who are ready to cater to an even bigger audience with the help of a digital platform.
Even though Rajkummar is keen to do an action film, he maintains that nothing would go haywire in his process of choosing films because, for him, the story of a film comes first than anything else in it. He mentioned in the interview that his projects are based on his ‘instinct’ and he likes to work on stories which are ‘more rooted and are more Indian in nature.’
