Helmed by Amit Masurkar, 'Newton' was a film about a government clerk on election duty. Rajkummar played the titular role of Newton Kumar in the film. The film was India's official selection for the 'Best Foreign Language Film' category for the 90th Academy Awards.
Bareilly Ki Barfi (2017)
In this film directed by Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari, we saw Rajkummar playing a very different character of Pritam Vidrohi - a salesman in a saree shop. Later, he transforms into a 'Badass Babua' in order to woo Kriti Sanon.
Rajkummar underwent a great physical transformation to play his part of a man trapped in a high rise building without any food, water or electricity. The film was directed by Vikramaditya Motwane.
Rajkummar Rao played a journalist in this film which was directed by Hansal Mehta. Rao's character helps Prof. Siras (Manoj Bajpayee) in his fight for justice.
Kai Po Che (2013)
Based on Chetan Bhagat's novel 'The 3 Mistakes of My Life', Rao played one of the three friends around whom the film's story revolves.
Just two years after his debut, Rajkummar starred in this Hansal Mehta directed biographical drama and bagged the National Award for his terrific performance in the film.
Whenever Hansal Mehta and Rajkummar have come together they have created magic on-screen and this film was no different. The film opened up to some rave reviews with everyone praising Rao's performance in it.
Though Rajkummar wasn't playing a major role in this film, he still managed to grab attention for his portrayal of a man who dumps his to-be-wife (Kangana Ranaut) just a day before their marriage.
Rajkummar Rao marked his Bollywood debut in 2010 with ‘Love Sex Aur Dhokha’ and the rest as they say is history. In a mere eight years, the 33-year-old actor has carved a niche for himself in the film industry and has even bagged a National Award. Over the years, he has impressed the audiences and the critics alike with his terrific acting prowess. On the occasion of this brilliant actor’s birthday, we bring you his eight films that you must see. Have a look:
