Rajkummar Rao recently appeared in Arbaaz Khan’s talk show Pinch. In the teaser for the episode, the actor can be seen discussing the cons of social media, his career in the film industry and some professional choices he is not proud of.
In response to a troll asking him to ‘try not to be a hero and stick to super duper acting’, Rajkummar responded, “They feel like this because they think, ‘You stick to acting, because we have enough heroes. You concentrate on that’.”
Another comment called him Keshto Mukherjee, a prominent Bangla actor, often cast in supporting, comedic roles. Rajkummar responded, “But he was a great actor.”

Among others, a fan requested him to not take up projects where his ‘art is not given enough due’. In response, Rao shared, “I’ve taken up films that I’m not proud of. Nahin bhi karta toh chal sakta tha (it would have been okay had I not done them either). Some films are for the box office, some are for life.”
Speaking about the ills of social media, Rajkummar said, “I don’t take social media that seriously. Zindagi zyada sukoon bhari thi without social media. (Life was so much more peaceful without social media).” He also called it a shortcut to get instant fame. “It’s a small part of your life, not your entire life. Don’t depend so much on social media.”
On the work front, Rajkummar Rao is awaiting the release of Netflix original ‘Monica O My Darling‘.
