Bollywood actor Rajkummar Rao is one of the most versatile actors present in the film industry. With a career spanning over 13 years, the 38-year-old star knows the art of making blockbusters at the box office, and his films like Kai Po Che! (2013) and Stree (2018) are evidence of the fact.
And now, the talented actor is looking forward to working on a promising film based on the life of freedom fighter Bhagat Singh. The official announcement of this development has not been made yet.
However, a report by Pinkvilla believes, “Rajkummar Rao is passionate about a project on Bhagat Singh and is very eager to play the revolutionary leader soon. The project is in a very nascent stage of development now as a team of writers is busy researching on the episodes from Bhagat Singh’s life. Rajkummar himself is very involved in the script development process and is treating it as a pet project.”
The team close to the development told Pinkvilla, ““The team wants to make content around Bhagat Singh unlike anything done before. Rather than going in the conventional film format, the team is also exploring the long-form format for the story. It’s all in very early stages and the writing will take another 6 to 8 months.”
Meanwhile, Rajkummar Rao is all set to collaborate with popular Bollywood actress Shraddha Kapoor for the film titled, Stree 2. A press statement on April 12 confirmed that the film is under development. India Today – a news portal – reported on Tuesday that Shraddha Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao will start shooting for Stree 2 in July.
On the work front, Rao recently in March, featured in a critically acclaimed film, titled Bheed. This social drama film encircled the lives of people during lockdown amidst the prevalence of the COVID-19 pandemic.
