Rajkummar Rao and Kriti Kharbanda attended promotional event of their upcoming ‘Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana’ on Tuesday in Mumbai. while interacting with media, Rajukmmar stated that he is to totally game for female centric films.
Rajkummar Rao has always given preference to content rather than length of his character in his films so when asked him in future also he will be part of female centric films since he has become established actor in bollywood, he said, “I am always totally game for it. I was part of film like ‘Queen’ so who can argue with that? I hope there should be more female centric films like ‘Queen’ and ‘Lipstick Under My Burkha’ made in Hindi film industry and more than that, I feel we should make all kinds of film because cinema is like buffet and we should serve everything to the audience and let audience decide what they want to watch”
Kriti added, “I feel actor should be secure in his space whether its male or female. Actors like Rajkummar are really secure in their own space really doesn’t care about whether it’s a male centric or female centric film as long as it brings content and entertainment quotient in the films so now almost all actors of this generation are thinking in this manner so I feel we are getting there”
Talking about his excitement for ‘Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana’, Rajkummar said, “I am very excited for the film. This film is made with lot of heart and efforts. Content driven films which have worked superbly this year , this film will be included in this list. Its high on content film. Characters in this film is real so audience will be able to relate and connect with characters of the film so we are very hopeful with this film.”
Talking about his character in the film, Rajkummar said, “In first half of the film, my character is really sweet and simple who is madly in love with Kriti’s character who wants to get married , have kids and wants to do 9 to 5 job but on his marriage day, something happens and he meet Kriti’s character after 5 years and this time he has become more aggressive, serious and ambitious so playing two phases in a one film was really fun for me”
Nowadays, there is debate that actress should get equal remuneration with their male counterpart, talking about it Kriti said, “if I am interested in script of the film then I am not bothered about money now but most of the time what happens is content driven films doesn’t get adequate funding but fortunately after film like ‘Newton’ investors and markets perception has changed to look at content driven films and producers are now willing to take risks and they are gaining confidence to produce films but I have gone through a phase where despite having a good script , I wasn’t able to take that up because of I was offered less money but now on, I have decided that I will never say no to a film just because they are offering less money to a film’
“I also feared that if script of this film would have gone to any other actress then no one will reject this film that’s why I decided to be part of this film”
Talking about her marriage and relationship outlook, Kriti said, “I am clear about one thing that I will not get not get into marriage or in a relationship in hurry. There are examples that certain couples who are in a relationship with each other for 10 years but their relationship doesn’t work but there are some instances when you meet someone only once and decide to spend rest of your life with that person so you can’t decide the future. Till now, I used to think about my future a lot rather than living in present but now I am consciously trying to live in present rather than thinking about future”
