- Rajkummar Rao was never affected by Newton's controversy
- He will be next seen in Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana
- "I see no harm in playing small parts in a female-centric film," says Raj
The actor will next be seen in the film Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana opposite Kriti Kharbanda. The story of the film revolves around two young people and their journey of five years.
Giving an insight to his character, Rajkummar said: "My character has a journey that travels the phase from a college pass out of a small town to falling in love with a girl and to becoming a successful, rich guy. It is a revenge story and how love makes you do things that you cannot do otherwise."
Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana is yet another of Rajkummar's films to be set in the small town milieu after Behen Hogi Teri and Bareilly Ki Barfi.
Does he find it interesting to work on such film as this genre is working at the box office?
He said: "See, for me, experience counts first, and then the numbers. I have to like the film enough to invest my time. Rest will fall in place. Yes, Bareilly Ki Barfi worked and I am happy. See, I am trying to say that at the end of the day, I do not want to say that 'I shouldn't have done this film'. Therefore, liking the film from my end is important."
Interestingly, well-known male actors are becoming a part of a women-centric films and playing small yet significant parts -- like Aamir Khan in Secret Superstar and Manav Kaul in Vidya Balan-starrer Tumhari Sulu.
What does he think?
"I see no harm in playing small parts in a female-centric film if the role is pivotal. I have done it in Queen. For me, it is the importance of the character and not the length of it. So yes, I will be doing that in future."
Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana will release on November 10.
