Rajkummar Rao finally opens up on ‘Fanney Khan’ not receiving favourable reviews
When ‘Fanney Khan’ was announced, we simply couldn’t contain our excitement for two reasons, one it reunited Anil Kapoor with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan after almost 15 years and second, the film also featured power-house performer Rajkummar Rao.
However, upon its release, the film failed to live up to everyone’s expectations. In a recent interview with Mid-Day, opening about the film not receiving favourable reviews, Rajkummar said, “It (poor reviews) doesn’t affect my mindset. That people couldn’t connect to the story is momentary . But then, you learn your lesson. I have read reviews where people said that they wanted to see more of my character in the narrative. That is encouraging. At the end of the day, I can only control my honesty in the film. What people like or dislike is not in my hands.”
In ‘Fanney Khan’, we saw Rajkummar playing Anil Kapoor’s side-Kick and reasoning out why he decided to do so, the actor said that if there is an exciting role then he doesn’t mind playing a supporting character in a film. “I am a big fan of Anil sir, and I was glad to get the opportunity of working with him. If there is an exciting role, I don’t mind exploring a supporting character,” he said.
Further talking about how things don’t necessarily turn out the way one wants to, Rajkummar added, “We can’t always make films which will get a five-star rating. It’s fine with me. I just have to keep working and keep believing in things that matter to me.”
