Actor Rajkummar Rao says he is honoured to work with UN Environment and the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change for the cause ‘Beat Plastic Pollution’.
“Such an honour to be working with UN Environment and Ministry of Environment for a very important cause ‘Beat Plastic Pollution’. Asif Bhamla and Bhamla Foundation Initiative,” Rajkummar tweeted on Wednesday. On the acting front, Rajkummar currently has four films in his kitty — Fanne Khan, Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga, Stree and Mental Hai Kya.
In 2013, Rao played the role of Govind in the film Kai Po Che!, Abhishek Kapoor’s adaptation of Chetan Bhagat’s novel The 3 Mistakes of My Life. The movie was a commercial and critical success, and earned praise for the lead performances. Saibal Chatterjee of NDTV remarked: “No praise would be enough for Raj Kumar Rao. Delivering a measured performance as the self-effacing man lost in ‘the magic of numbers’, he is a consummate scene-stealer.” He followed Kai Po Che! with a leading role in the biopic Shahid, based on the life of the slain lawyer and human rights activist Shahid Azmi. It earned praise from the critics with Anupama Chopra writing: “Shahid is Raj Kumar’s triumph. His Shahid has strength, anguish and a controlled anger, but also real charm. His smile lights up the frame. See Shahid for him.”The role earned him a National Film Award for Best Actor (shared with Suraj Venjaramoodu for Perariyathavar) and a Filmfare Critics Award for Best Actor.
