Rajkummar Rao is riding high on the success of ‘Stree’ and the Bollywood actor’s latest acquisition is a film based on the life of the acid attack survivor Lakshmi Agarwal. While Deepika Padukone will play the lead in this female-centric project, Rajkummar Rao has bagged an important part opposite the A-rung actress. This yet untitled film will be spearheaded by Meghna Gulzar. However, this realistic flick is not all that Rajkummar has in store. The ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’ star has also been signed up to play the lead in yet another horror-comedy which will be backed by Dinesh Vijan. The said project will co-star Varun Sharma along with Rajkummar Rao, while rest of the details are yet to be revealed.
Apart from the above two Bollywood films, Rajkummar Rao has a rather interesting platter of movies releasing in the coming year. The actor has three films that will hit the theatres back-to-back, starting in February with a romantic-comedy ‘Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga’ with Sonam Kapoor and Anil Kapoor. Come March and Rajkummar will be seen alongside his ‘Queen’ co-star Kangana Ranaut in a quirky film ‘Mental Hai Kya’. On August 15, he will don the avatar of a Gujarati businessman for ‘Made In China’. Rajkummar has also signed Hansal Mehta’s ‘Turram Khan’, whose release is yet to be announced.
