Rajkummar Rao on Stree, Fanney Khan: Box office success is not my aim

Bollywood’s one of the finest actors Rajkummar Rao recently featured in Fanney Khan opposite Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. The film received mixed response from the audience as well as critics. Also, the film’s box office performance has been below par. Talking about this, Rajkummar says that box office success of a movie is not his aim. Rajkummar was interacting with media to promote his forthcoming film "Stree" on Tuesday.

The critically acclaimed actor has been often praised by critics and audiences. But he is yet to transform that into a major box office success like his male counterparts such as Varun Dhawan, Ranbir Kapoor and Ranveer Singh have been able to.

Asked whether he is working on that aspect, the National Award winner said: "That is not in my hands so, I don't have any idea how to work on that aspect."

"My job is to deliver good performances. My last year's films, whether it was 'Bareilly Ki Barfi', 'Trapped' or 'Newton', have done good business. So it is not that my films haven't done well at the box office.

"My films are doing good business. That's the reason why I am constantly working in many films. Box office success of a film is not my aim because it is not in my hands. My job is to act and I get satisfied when people appreciate my work."

Rajkummar has featured in different kinds of films. Now he is doing a horror comedy.

Asked whether it's his conscious effort to act in different types of films, he said: "Definitely. That's my conscious effort because that's the fun of being an actor... to do different kinds of stuff.

"If I will keep doing the same thing over and over again then, I will get bored and the audience will also get bored of me. Therefore, my effort is to choose unique characters or I do something different while playing those characters which will excite me and the audience."

"Stree", which also stars Shraddha Kapoor, is scheduled to release on August 31.
