Rajkumar Rao is one actor who has set a very high bench mark ever since his first film. He is regarded as one of the finest actors and we know why. Every film he’s a part of has a gripping story line, a splendid performance and just an absolute treat to the eye and mind. After films like Newton, Stree, Shahid and more, the actor has proved his worth in the industry. Not to forget, the actor has bagged a National Award for his performance too!
On his 36th birthday today, here are five films of Rajkumar Rao that you just cannot miss!
#1 Stree – A one of kind horror-comedy film, Stree not only performed well at the box office but also won our hearts with Rajkumar Rao’s epic role. The genre really brought out the unseen!
#2 Newton – A story of an honest clerk who is super dedicated to his work and could go till any extent to finish it. Rao could relate himself with his character Newton Kumar and his ideology so well. Newton had its world premiere in the Forum section of the 67th Berlin International Film Festival and it was India’s official entry to the Oscars.
#3 Trapped – Apart from a major body transformation, Rajkumar Rao who essayed the role of a man trapped in a building with no food, water and electricity aced it in this movie. The film had a positive impact on him as an actor physically as well as mentally, according to him.
#4 Shahid -It was for Shahid that the actor bagged himself a National Award. The film was based on Shahid Azmi, a lawyer and human rights activist who was assassinated in 2010. As per sources, Rajkumar Rao spent a lot of time with Shahid’s real life family too.
#5 Bareilly Ki Barfi – From a naïve salesman to a badass you must watch out for, Rajkumar Rao played both roles with so much ease. He indeed made us fall in love with both his avatars at the same time!
Here’s wishing the super star a very Happy Birthday from Team Cineplex!
