About Bheed, the National Award-winning actor said, "I have always found myself gravitating towards stories that trigger conversation. Even as an entertainer, I want my work to get people thinking."
Calling it an important subject, Rajkummar said the character needs him to stretch him as an artist and beyond his comfort zone. The actor can’t wait to start shooting and lose himself in this universe of Bheed.
Meanwhile, Rajkummar is currently gearing up for the release of Hum Do Hamare Do which is set to stream on Disney+ Hotstar from October 29, 2021.
