Actor Rajkumar Rao is very happy to do back-to-back romantic comedies after he has done a series of serious roles.
“’Trapped’ did take a mental and physical toll on me. It was a very taxing film to do. While ‘Behen Hogi Teri’ and ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’ are fun films. But my commitment towards my work is the same. I had to learn the accent, work on the character but it was all fun this time,” Rajkummar told PTI.
The 32-year-old actor says it was not a conscious decision enter the mainstream commercial space.
“I feel fortunate and lucky that people are thinking of me in each and every genre. ‘Behen Hogi Teri’ and ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’ are wonderful stories and I have good roles in both the films,” he says.
The actor told that he is receiving good encouraging comments from industry people.
“They are happy to see me in this avatar and they are saying I should do this often. But I don’t have any plan... I do the work that I like.”
Rajkumar is paired opposite Shruti Hasan in ‘Behen Hogi Teri’. The film is scheduled to release on June 2.
Ashwiny Iyer-directed ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’ features him along with Ayushmann Kurrana and Kriti Sanon and it will release on July 21.
