EXCLUSIVE: RAJKUMMAR RAO TALKS HUMBLE BEGINNINGS,(Interview): Signature Startup Masterclass, Season 2, is all about converting your “passion to paycheque”. The series of webisodes exhibit real-life success stories of revered personalities who provide guidance to aspirants wishing to achieve their dreams and desires. And this time, in its Delhi edition, the audience witnessed talented actor Rajkummar Rao in conversation with host Neil Bhoopalam at one of the plush bars at the NCR.
The powerhouse performer, who hails from Gurgaon, has slowly and steadily carved a niche for himself in the industry by taking up meaningful roles without falling prey to the 100-crore box-office bug. He’s displayed some immense talent in films such as Trapped, Newton, Talaash, Kai Po Che! among other gems making him one of the most endearing actors of today’s times.
And, right before the masterclass, he sat down with LiveInStyle for an exclusive interview where he spoke about his humble beginnings, his definition of success, and more.
We’ve admired you as an actor (a terrific one) and now we’re going to witness you as a mentor at the second edition of the Signature Startup Masterclass. What should your fans expect from you at the event?
I’m just here to share my experience, and I hope somebody out there can relate to my stories and get inspired by them. If I can help somebody find their way around, then I’m always there for that. I’m not here as a mentor, I’m out here to share my experiences. Mentor is a heavy term; I’m a little scared of this term. Neil (Bhoopalam) will be there on-stage with me and we are actually really good buddies. So I’m looking forward to it.
