Being a perfectionist that Rajkummar Rao is, the actor likes to get into the skin of every character that he plays. Right from going on a special diet to putting on weight for the role to reading every book possible on Netaji, Rajkummar’s journey to become Subhash Chandra Bose on screen has been a tumultuous one.
Rajkummar who will be seen next in ALTBalaji’s most ambitious digital show BOSE Dead/Alive, trained himself not just physically but mentally as well, to make sure his character looks authentic on-screen.
To ensure that he got the pulse of the character right, Rajkummar did a very interesting thing. He put up pictures of Subhash Chandra Bose on the mirror of his make-up room, which he used to observe while getting ready or whenever he was in there taking a break. Looking at these pictures helped him connect with the character and observe and learn Bose’s mannerisms and stay connected with the role.
Certainly, a rarity to find actors who go all out for their role!! Yes, we have to agree that Rajkummar’s dedication towards his character of BOSE is bang on!
ALTBalaji’s Bose Dead/Alive starring Rajkummar Rao will trace the journey of the revolutionary from being an introverted 14-year-old to a 48-year-old brave nationalist. This fast-paced thriller will soon be streaming on the ALTBalaji app.
