Short Take

Rajkumar Rao
What keeps you tethered to acting?
I want to live various lives, and films are the only way I can do that.

What is your biggest fear? 
My biggest fear is to find my comfort zone. 

With regard to Bollywood, do you believe you were in the right place at the right time?
I feel blessed to have joined the industry when it was going through a change. Filmmakers were telling these amazing stories in a different way.

What do you look for in a script?
When I read a script I look for something different, something that makes me explore new things. I need to be excited and the film should push me as an actor.
