Actor Rajkummar Rao, whose next big screen outing is ‘Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana’, says he is not in a hurry to get married as he still feels like a child. ‘Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana’ is due for release on November 10. Rajkummar, who was present at an event in Mumbai on Monday was asked when he is going to get married in real life.
He said, “I am not getting married in real life, so that’s why I am getting married in films. But there are times in films also where I don’t end up getting married. There is still so much time left for me to get married in real life. Right now, I am focusing on my work and I feel I am still a kid, so I am not in a hurry to get married.”
The actor, mostly known for featuring in films with offbeat content and treatment, says it’s his job to be part of various kinds of films. “I like to give something new to my audience with every film of mine. Otherwise, it would get boring for me as well when I will start doing same kind of films. So it’s better to try and take risks,” said Rajkummar, who featured in ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’ and ‘Newton’ this year.
‘Newton’ is also India’s official entry for the Oscars’ Best Foreign Language Film category. Asked about the development on that front, he said, “It’s a huge responsibility when your film represents your country at the Oscars. We have cleared the first step, but we have to fight a long battle out there.”
“A total of 92 films are nominated with which our film is competing in the foreign language film category. So now we have to make it to the top nine films and then top five films. So, it’s going to be a different ball game altogether, but we will try really hard.”
After ‘Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana’, Rajkummar will also be seen in Hansal Mehta’s ‘Omerta’ and he will make his foray into the web series space with ‘Bose: Dead/Alive’
