There are struggles for any actor to portray a dark character as the role can take a toll on him (mentally and physically). Rajkummar Rao is one of the few actors who easily becomes the character he is seen playing onscreen. But, even this talented performer faced difficulty as it took him some time to come out of the character of terrorist Omar Saeed Sheikh, that he is playing in his upcoming film ‘Omerta’.

It was the actor’s first attempt at playing an anti-hero and recently during the promotions of his film, he opened up saying it was an exhausting experience for him. He said, “My first as an anti-hero and exhausting as an actor. To feel the hate towards another human being without any remorse can take quite a toll. It took me a while to shed this character.” (Also Read: Omerta: Rajkummar Rao-starrer shines at Hong Kong International Film Festival)

Talking about the film ‘Omerta’, it is based on terrorist Omar Saeed Sheikh’s life and was shot at real locations across London and India. The film witnesses Rajkummar Rao collaborating with filmmaker Hansal Mehta for the fourth time after teaming up with him earlier in ‘Shahid’, ‘Citylights’ and ‘Aligarh’.

It is slated to release on April 20, 2018.
