And now another B-town actor is all set to make his debut in the International Cinema. We are talking about Rajkumar Rao who has been roped in for a Hollywood production titled ‘5 Weddings’, to be directed by Namrata Singh Gujral.
Interestingly, Rao will be sharing the screen with actress Nargis Fakhri
"A production house from Los Angeles got in touch with me. I liked the script and the whole idea. Then I spoke to the director and I came on board. It's a feature film and Nargis and I are together in the film," Rajkummar told IANS.
Rajkumar will start shooting for ‘5 Weddings’ after he is done with his current project ‘Bareily Ki Barfi’.
"It will go on floors by November, once I finish shooting for 'Bareily Ki Barfi'. We will be shooting in Chandigarh and LA. As far as Nargis is concerned, I feel she is a fantastic and lovely girl. I haven't met her yet, but I have seen her work in 'Madras Cafe'.
"The role fits really well for her because she will be seen as an Indian girl raised in the US, so I feel it suits her. I am looking forward to work with her," said the National Award winning actor.
He is happy how content makers are considering Indian talent for their films and shows.
"I feel very fortunate and I think it's a fantastic time for all the actors. Look at Deepika Padukone, Irrfan Khan, Priyanka Chopra... they all are doing such a fabulous job. I am glad that the west is considering our Indian talent. I am in a happy space right now," he said.
