After the release of his next movie, Rajkummar Rao has a diverse line-up of films coming up — Made in China, Turram Khan with frequent collaborator Hansal Mehta, Roohi Afza and Anurag Basu’s untitled anthology. He is enjoying the ride but not taking it easy, he said. “What I’m liking about doing all these films is that I’m adding some new element to my characters. I don’t want people to feel that they have seen this stuff earlier. I’m pushing myself, it’s risky but I’m enjoying it. I’m not just taking it easy, it’s not coming naturally to me, but it’s a lot of fun.”
Apart from these projects, there has been a buzz about the Stree actor joining hands with filmmaker Karan Johar. Raj says that everything is up in the air as of now, though they have been talking about coming together for a film.
“Karan and I are very keen on working with each other. But I haven’t really signed anything as of now. Also, I don’t think it happens these days that you sign a three-film deal with banners, especially with actors. Maybe, it still happens in the case of directors.
We share a script, we like it, we end up doing it, that’s how it works. But I would love to work with him. We’ve been talking to each other for a while now. It should happen late next year,” Rajkummar said.
