Power house performer Rajkummar Rao is riding high on the success of his last film BAREILLY KI BARFI. The actor will next be seen in a web series based on the life of freedom fighter Subhash Chandra Bose.
Rajkummar is a known as health freak. The disciplined actor has been following a strict diet and regime for the past few years to ensure he is in the best shape. The actor is known to not have any vices and gives his 100 percent to every role that he takes up.
Interestingly in the turn of events and being most dedicated to his role as freedom fighter Subhash Chandra Bose, who was known to be a smoker in real life, Rajkummar Rao had to enact smoking like a pro on screen.
So in order to look like a real smoker Rajkummar got into the habit of smoking even when he was off the sets. Speaking on this, creative producer of Bose-Dead/Alive, Hansal Mehta shared, "I was shocked to see that Rajkummar had difficulty breathing during the Ladakh schedule and even more stunned to realize that in the role prep for Bose, he has taken to smoking. The man has no vices, I have seen him at his fittest best, eating healthy, sleeping early and having quinoa. However to get into the skin of the character of Subhash Chandra Bose, he had to gain 11 Kgs and also smoke onscreen. Now he has one vice, smoking!"
We hope that Rajkummar gives up smoking once he is done shooting for this series.
