‘Srikanth’ actor Rajkummar Rao on doing biopics: It’s not just a responsibility, it’s a duty

by admin

Most power-packed performer Rajkummar Rao has never failed to prove his caliber as a performer. His versatility is why the actor has become the top choice for filmmakers to cast in out-of-the-box films, especially biopics. From portraying the iconic Indian freedom fighter Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose in ‘Bose: Dead/Alive’ to bringing to life the struggles of the slain human rights activist Shahid Azmi in ‘Shahid’, Rao has demonstrated his exceptional talent and dedication to his craft, and with his upcoming film ‘Srikanth’, his endeavour to deliver performance par excellence continues.

The National Award-winning actor’s ability to immerse himself completely into the skin of the character has earned him accolades from critics and audiences alike. One of the key reasons behind Rao’s popularity in biopics is his commitment to authenticity. He meticulously researches his characters, studying their mannerisms, speech patterns, and nuances to bring them to life on screen. Talking about the same, Rao had said, “Playing real-life characters is a huge responsibility. You want to do justice to their journey and their story. It’s not just about mimicking their physical appearance; it’s about understanding their emotions, their struggles, and their triumphs.”

In an interview, the most versatile actor spoke about how doing biopics is very risky because there’s a chance that the actor might not get the character to the T. He said more than responsibility, it is an actor’s duty to justify his role in the biopic as it is based on a real life person. “If we hit it wrong, then there’s a big problem,” he shared. As Rao is set to mesmerise audiences with his performance yet again with ‘Srikanth’, which is set to release on May 10, one thing is certain – when it comes to biopics, the actor is a force to be reckoned with!
