The most prestigious National Award winning performer Rajkummar Rao has stated that he was never ever affected by the hullabaloo and controversy surrounding his film Newton, which has been chosen as India’s major entry for the Best Foreign Language movie Oscar recommendation. After Newton was declared as India’s Oscar entry previous this year, some media reports pointed out a similarity in it’s connive with an Iranian film known as Secret Ballot. But these invalid comparisons were kept aside by the films makers. ”I was not exaggerated by the controversy of my movie Newton as I knew that these two are completely different films. I always knew it from the movie script. On the other hand, I am very content and happy that each one who made the controversy has got an appropriate answer when the movie producer made a declaration mentioning that the movie is completely different from Secret Ballot.”

Rajkummar Rao will next be seen in his new upcoming movie called Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana which also stars Kriti Kharbanda. The narrative of the film revolves around 2 young individuals and their complete journey for almost 5 years. Giving an imminent to his amazing character, Rajkummar stated, “My film character has a expedition that travels the period from a school/college pass out of a very small city to falling in love a very beautiful girl and to becoming a winning and successful, rich guy. It is a vengeance tale and how love will make you do different things that you cannot do normally.”

Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana is one of the Rajkummar’s movies to be set in a very small city milieu after the blockbuster movies like: Bareilly Ki Barfi and Behen Hogi Teri. Does he find it motivating to work on such kind of pictures as this genre is actually working at the box office for him? “He said that for me, enjoyment and experience counts at first stage, and then the numbers come along. I have to like the movie completely to invest my precious time and I am sure rest will automatically fall in place. Yes, Bareilly Ki Barfi movie has completely worked for me and I am very content. What I am trying to say here that at the end every day, I do not wish to say that ‘I shouldn’t have done this particular movie’. so, liking the film from my end is significant.”
