We’ve been pure admirers of Rajkummar Rao’s talent and have always known that his work will take him places and how! And as we can see it, everything is falling right in place for the Newton actor. While Rao is busy shooting for Made In China, alongside Mouni Roy, our sources now tell us that Rao will be the leading man in Meghna Gulzar’s next, which is a biopic on Lakshmi Agrawal and stars Deepika Padukone as the leading lady. While there has been no official confirmation on the same, there is no smoke without fire!
In fact, sources have revealed that Raj has decided to sign the film but hasn’t officially done it yet. His role will be smaller than that of Padukone, but is substantial. “But the role is substantial and has excited Rao. He has not yet worked with Deepika. A role that drives back home a social message has excited the actor. Rao is never excited about the length of the roles. He did a superb cameo in Raabta which got many people talking especially for his make-up among other things.”
Earlier, both Rao and Padukone have expressed their desires to work with each other and collaborate in the creative space! We knew it’d happen someday, but so soon? We’re excited!
