Who would have guessed powerhouse performer, Rajkummar Rao could also dance!
Having successfully essayed a variety of characters, the talented actor finally got an opportunity to showcase his dancing skills in the highly-anticipated, Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana.
Lauded for his brilliant performance in the dark comedy, Newton ((being selected as India’s official entry to the Oscars 2018), Rajkummar recently shot a promotional track, Pallo along with his co-star, Kriti Kharbanda for his upcoming family entertainer. The song is a peppy number sung by Jyotika Tangri and Yaseer Desai and has been choreographed by Adil Shaikh.
Rajkummar says, “Though I’m not a trained dancer, I have enjoyed dancing since I was a kid but don’t get too many opportunities to do so on screen. This song is set in a club and we shot it in one night.”
The powerhouse performer informs that before he entered Bollywood, he was part of a dance troupe in Gurgaon and participated in a lot of competitions.
Adds Rajkummar, “But since not too many people know this, whenever they see my happy feet on celluloid they are like, ‘Oh you can dance too, we never imagined!’”
