Citylights actor Rajkummar Rao says he always had a dancer in him but after going to acting school, he fell in love with acting. The actor adds that he would love to be part of a dance-based film if given a chance.”The dancer is in me. It always was. But after going to FTII, I just fell in love with acting. Since childhood I have been dancing in the front for every competition and function. But since I started acting, the actor in me over-shadowed the dancer in me. But if somebody offers me a dance film, I would love to do it,” Rajkummar said.
The actor was on the second season of on Zoom’s Yaar Mera Superstar to promote his film Behen Hogi Teri. The movie also features Shruti Haasan and Gautam Gulati in pivotal roles. The film’s story revolves around a man who falls in love with his childhood friend and neighbour, but the twist is that the girl treats him as nothing more than a neighbour or a brother.
Known for his intense performance in films like Shahid, Citylights and Trapped, this is the first time that Rajkummar has tried the comedy genre. The film will release on June 9. Talking about it, he said: “I quite enjoyed performing. Getting the comic timing correct is important, but it should also look effortless. It’s fun to be funny. One of the reasons why I did the film was to explore this genre.”
