Rajkummar Rao to groove with Malaika Arora Khan


Rajkummar Rao of ‘Shahid’ and ‘Citylights’ fame doesn’t want his audience to tag him a serious hero because he likes to dance as well. Rao said that he loves to dance, fight and romance like an Bollywood hero and given an opportunity, he would love to shake a leg in movies. He added that he is keen to play an action and die-hard romantic hero.

Rajkummar Rao will shake a leg with item girl Malaika Arora Khan in ‘Dolly Ki Doli’. When asked, he replied, “Yes, I am really looking forward to that. Not too many people in the film industry know this. But I love to dance. They think of me as this serious actor who wouldn't be caught having fun on his feet. But friends know how I freak out when the music blares. Sajid-Wajid have composed a really wicked track. I can't wait to get into the groove”.

Rao was highly praised for ‘Shahid’, on being asked, he said, “Yes, the critics were kind. I take some seriously, some not so seriously. But I know the mistakes that I made in 'Citylights'.

Rajkummar thinks 'Love Sex aur Dhokha' (LSD), Hansal Mehta's 'Shahid' and Abhishek Kapoor's 'Kai Po Che!' are the turning point of his career.

The talented actor does not want to do supporting roles, “Yes, 'Queen' and now 'Dolly Ki Doli' would be the last of my supporting roles. I am consciously trying not to do smaller parts. I will only do leading roles now. But if someone offers me 'Satya', I'd agree to play Bhiku Mhatre instead of the title role. Fortunately, no one is offering me supporting roles”.

Rao said it is tough to choose between ‘Shahid’ and ‘Citylights’, “Very tough to say. I give all of myself to all my characters. Even the s***bag I played in 'Ragini MMS'. Both my characters in 'Shahid' and 'Citylights' are heroic. I am in Hindi cinema at just the right time. Five years ago, I wouldn't have got a 'Shahid' or 'Citylights'. To me, my character, the story and then the producer -- these are the three aspects I look into before I accept an offer”.
