Acting not competition but personal journey, says Rajkummar Rao

The actor began his journey with Rann in 2010 and came into the limelight after starring in Kai Po Che! (2013).


National Award-winning actor Rajkummar Rao doesn't see acting as a competition. He says it is a personal journey.

Rajkummar's "personal journey" in showbiz started in 2010 when he featured in the film Rann. But it was after starring in the 2013 film Kai Po Che!, based on three friends, that he achieved fame.

"For me, acting is not a competition. It's a very personal journey. My only competition is with the man in the mirror and to grow as an artiste with every film," Rajkummar tweeted on Sunday (18 March) along with his image in which he is all suited up and looking at himself in a mirror.

He even gave image courtesy to his girlfriend and actress Patralekhaa, with whom he acted in Citylights (2014) — a film by Hansal Mehta.

Rajkummar is currently being showered with appreciation for his work in Omertà by Mehta. The film's trailer was unveiled earlier this week. It is based on British-Pakistani terrorist Omar Saeed Sheikh.
