News is that, for his upcoming film Bareily Ki Barfi which is rooted in UP, the actor is learning the dialect of the city to add a feel to the character and make it look very genuine, followed by several linguistic accents that he picked up for Kai Po Che, City Lights & Shahid and most recent Aligarh.
His movies are said to have earned commercial as well as critical success, with his characters having a indelible impression on the audiences. The actor’s powerful performances have got the audiences rooted for him and love the way he transmutes himself into his character.
It wouldn’t be bombastic to say that the actor fits the bill perfectly when it comes to performance oriented roles. Besides his surprising talent, the actor is known to nail the characters that he plays. Rajkumar is said to be leaving no stone unturned for the preparation of his next with director Ashwini Iyer Tiwari.
The actor is adding yet another feather to his cap as it’s a UP dialect after Gujarati, Rajasthani and Bihari. No wonder this is how he always manages to take the audience by storm with his performances.
Rajkumar Rao says, “I don’t feel anything special about learning different accents or languages for films. It’s my responsibility as an actor. I have always liked picking up accents. All my characters can’t sound the same as in most cases they belong to different regions.”
