Actor Rajkummar Rao, who is playing the role of Pritam Vidrohi in forthcoming film Bareilly Ki Barfi, says the kind of variations the character has is very unique.

According to him, Nitesh Tiwari had narrated the script of the film to Rajkummar before the release of the director's Dangal in 2016.

"The moment he started reading Pritam Vidrohi, I was sold that I am doing this film. The kind of variation that Pritam has is very unique," Rajkummar said in a statement. 

The actor was impressed with Tiwari's narrating style.

"It was one of the best narrations, and personally I prefer reading my scripts, but Nitesh sir is such an amazing actor himself and he knew his characters inside out," he added. 

The story of Bareilly Ki Barfi revolves around three characters - Chirag, Pritam and Bitti, played by Ayushmann Khurrana, Rajkummar and Kriti Sanon, respectively.

The film will be released on 18 August.
