Playing real life character is a huge responsibility: Raj Kumar Yadav
For Raj Kumar Yadav, becoming an actor was the only ambition and his seriousness is much reflected in the kind of characters and films he picks up.
His films Love, Sex Aur Dhokha, and Ragini MMS have helped him carve a niche for himself in B-Town. Up next for this talented actor is Kai Po Che. And he's drowned in work. Ask him about his projects and Raj shares, "Currently I'm working on Shahid, a biopic of Shahid Azmi directed by Hansal Mehta, also in pipeline is Queen with Kangana Ranaut which is a real life love story. Also, I'll be busy with promotions of Kai Po Che."
And, is it tough to play real life character? "It is a huge responsibility. And I'm glad many biopics are coming up in Bollywood." He goes on to add, "In case of my movie Shahid, before I took up the project, I didn't know anything about Shahid Azmi except a vague recollection of an article that I had come across. I met his family, we have no footage available for Shahid. There were only photographs, so my research involved spending time
with his brothers and family and getting into the psyche of Shahid. The more time I spent with them, I got around to understanding about him."
