all Rajkummar Rao fans on social media were surprised recently with the actor’s new beefed-up look. We haven’t seen the versatile actor sporting such an avatar ever. The award winning actor is in the process of undergoing a physical transformation, as he has started the prep work to get into the character of yet another striking role of a cop in Junglee Pictures’ highly-anticipated film ‘Badhaai Do’, also featuring Bhumi Pednekar as a PT teacher.
Rajkummar has been training rigorously since the past couple of months to get into the skin of a tough cop at a Mahila Police Thana, as the film is slated to start shooting in January next year.
Sources suggest that the actor is following a strict diet and exercise regime to achieve the desired result. Besides working on bulked-up body, the actor will also sport a moustache and a different hairstyle for his character making it completely different from his past roles.
Badhaai Do, the actor informs, “Badhaai Do is indeed a special film for me. I have been working on a very strict regime and being a vegetarian, I am following a natural & organic diet consisting of fruits, oats, quinoa and sattu and lots of veggies on a regular basis. Even during the lockdown, when the access to gym was restricted, I have been doing a daily home workout and this entire process has been life changing.”
Riding high on the success and appreciation of two back-to-back successful films – Ludo and Chhalaang, Rajkummar will be seen sharing the screen space opposite Priyanka Chopra in the international film, The White Tiger too.
Junglee Pictures is set to take the success to the next level with Badhaai Do. Directed by Harshavardhan Kulkarni and written by Akshat Ghildial and Suman Adhikary, it features Rajkummar Rao and Bhumi Pednekar who will be seen together on screen for the first time.
