Mumbai: Remembering old days, actor Rajkummar Rao revealed he was a dramatics teacher at a school in Gurugram for a brief period. The 36-year-old actor shared how before his acting career took off in Bollywood, he has taught students in a Gurugram school.
“The call centre had just started coming up in Gurgaon and a lot of my friends had joined call centre jobs and I was not really good with language,” Rajkummar said.
During his second year of college, the Trapped actor thought of making some extra pocket money and as a result, he picked up a job which he loved.
“I thought ‘what should I do when everybody is making extra pocket money?’ I was in second-year college. Then I thought let me do what I love, so I just joined the school called KV public school in Gurgaon sector 14 — then I did 1 play for their annual day function. I was there for 3 months, then I focused on myself and learnt,” he added. Adding on why students love Rajkummar a lot, he said, “Students love me because we were pretty much their age. There was not really age difference. So they treated me like a friend.” In his upcoming film Chhalaang, Rao will be seen essaying the role of a PT teacher.
Helmed by Hansal Mehta, the film is a Luv Films production and is presented by Gulshan Kumar and Bhushan Kumar. Produced by Ajay Devgn, Luv Ranjan, and Ankur Garg, the film will feature Rajkummar Rao and Nushrratt Bharuccha in lead roles along with Saurabh Shukla, Satish Kaushik, Zeeshan Ayyub, Ila Arun and Jatin Sarna in pivotal roles.
