Rajkummar Rao Opens Up About Losing Roles to Star Kids

Rajkummar Rao is preparing for the release of his upcoming film Mr & Mrs Mahi alongside Janhvi Kapoor, slated to hit theaters on May 31. Directed by Sharan Sharma and produced by Zee Studios and Dharma Productions, the romantic sports drama is highly anticipated.

In a recent conversation with producer Karan Johar, Rajkummar discussed their film and reflected on his acting journey. He disclosed experiencing setbacks in his career, losing roles to star kids.

Addressing the topic of star kids in the industry, Karan expressed, “Sometimes they are using it as a toll to make headlines. Immensely successful people are saying, ‘Oh I felt victimised like an outsider and lost opportunity to a star kid’. Somebody is saying, ‘I didn’t attend a party so I didn’t get a role.’ I don’t know at which party there has been transactions for films.”

Responding to Karan, Rajkummar revealed his own encounters with losing roles to star kids during his struggling days, expressing his belief that it is unfair. He shared, “When I came to Mumbai, even I was told that ‘you have to attend parties’. Making contacts is not a problem, but going to a party and saying, ‘Hi I am here to make contact’ is. But having said that, I was supposed to do a film, but then suddenly I was not in that film overnight. Somebody who is known and happened to be a star kid got that part.”

He continued, “In my mind, I think it was not fair. Just because you can control things, you know people, you can make some calls, it is being unfair. That film never got made eventually. That guy was an insider but he could have also been an outsider who is successful and could do the same to you.”

Aside from Mr & Mrs Mahi, Rajkummar will also be seen in Amar Kaushik’s Stree 2, featuring Shraddha Kapoor, Apaarshakti Khurrana, and Pankaj Tripathi in pivotal roles.
