Rajkummar Rao plays a 324 year old man in Raabta: Photos

Actor Rajkummar Rao will be playing the role of a 324 year old man in Dinesh Vijan’s upcoming film ‘Raabta’. The trailer, which has already received 23 million views, ends with a mysterious looking character. The unrecognisable actor is none other than Rajkummar Rao.

The makers of Raabta did 16 look test before picking the final one. Director Dinesh Vijan and Rajkumar sat along with the team over a couple of days to get the final look in place.

“Rajkummar was kind enough to do me a favour. It was tedious but, he patiently sat through it everyday. I think, the idea of the prosthetics making him completely unrecognisable excited him as an actor,” said Vijan in a statement.

In addition to his look, his body posture and voice modulation had to be worked upon.

Rajkummar underwent five to six hours of prosthetic everyday to get into his character. He also had to wear accessories and have tattoos.

Talking about his character, Rao said “It was so much fun as an actor. Dinoo (Dinesh) has a very clear vision as a director and he gave me a lot of freedom as an actor to explore. The prosthetics used to take almost five to six hours everyday and then I would start sweating inside all that make-up. It needed quite a bit of patience”

Raabta releases in theatres on June 9.

  • Today when I searched on internet and saw all the acheivements of srk I have realized that I m bashing a wrong person .. I Want to apolozise to every srk fan in the world .. I m sorry for my nonsence and stupid comments .. I have realized that after 2008 salman started to give hits before he was nothing .. But srk since 1992 he was consistent and still ruling the bixoffice .. ! I think salman can be a megastar but srk is the ultimate king if the Bollywood .. ! I hope srkians will forgive me for my sins ..!

  • At first glance on the first picture I thought he’s Vijay Raaz… Why did they do prosthetics to make Rajkummar Rao look like Vijay Raaz ;-D

  • Just waiting for Tubelight..
    Nobody is going watch his 324 yrs actor.
    But now the competition btw
    Half girlfriend vs RAABTA
    Lets see who wins

  • Fake id made by srk fans shameless fan base for a reason Tiger-the real king is his name and you wrote Tiger_the real king everyone please dont believe that comment he is an srkian @indicine he is using fake id of tiger and you published it i know he used_ instead of – but many readers will miss interpret it to the orignal tiger id so i request you to delete that comment to avoid confusion and never publish similar account id comments

  • Looks like he is playing the role of Ghora who tells the villain about his previous life just like in Magadheera. I may be wrong but this character just increases the similarities between Magadheera and Raabta for me.

  • see actors like rajkmar rao doesn’t hve choices..they hve to do these experiments..they can’t play heroism or charmng characters !

    btw he is looking great .

  • He is a class actor,Teriffic in Shahid( National award winner) & in Trapped.He has his own style of acting..Bro please continue with the kind of movies you are doing,We have so actors & non actors to do commercial films.I want you to win most no of national awards,as you have long career ahead plus you are good looking.

  • But our Xmas relying gigastar is looks like 5 years old both in terms of height, looks and minds. He always cries like a little girl.

    “after 2008 salman started to give hits before he was nothing”……. Abey chameleon, kuch bhi bakwas karega??? Let’s compare Salman vs bakri till 2008…….

    ATHG :
    Salman – 1
    Srk – 0

    HGOTD :
    Salman – 2
    Srk – 0

    BHOTD :
    Salman – 2
    Srk – 0

    HGOTY :
    Salman – 6 (acc to Indicine)
    Srk – only 5

    ATBB :
    Salman – 3
    Srk – only 2.

    Even before 2008 Salman was light years ahead of srk… So, mr. Chameleon come up with something new.

  • I am a big fan of rajkumar rao. .bt he is still not recognised I hope he will get it in the upcoming years. . Hit like if you think rajkumar rao is more talented than other young actors

  • Please dont block my comment admin sir
    @TIGER LOL When did Salman have 3 ATBBs?? KKHH is a Salman film???
    LOL Ye to koi baat nahi hoi!!!!!
    Before 2010

    SRK-5
    Salman-5

    No. Of record openers
    SRK-4(trimurti, MHN, K3g, Koyla)
    Salman-1(Biwi no.1)

    Blockbusters(excluding Karan Arjun)
    SRK-5 Darr/DTPH/K3g/OSO/RNBDJ
    Salman-1(Maybe Saajan as well with HSSH)

    ATBBs
    Salman-2
    SRK-2(KKHH is not a salman film)

    Yes he had two hgotds, one luckily other due to Madhuri
    P.S. Madhuri before HAHK(1988 to 1992)
    Tejaab-BB
    Dil-BB
    Beta-BB
    Khanayak-Super hit
    Thaanedar-BB

    Madhuri after HAHK
    Raja-BB
    DTPH-BB

    Salman before hahk
    1 MPK that too 6 years ago, sorry 5
    After HAHK-HSSH blockbuster

    Dear Indicine, do publish this to prove you r not biased

    And in KKHH at the end it is clearly mentioned SPECIAL APPEARANCE
    Salman Khan as Aman

    @Indicine pls publish this

    I know u aren’t salman fan “Real Tiger”… actually u r a coward like srk who is also a coward… Real mein tu usse aisa bulwa kar dikha to samjhung tu ek baap ka beta nahi to tu 100 baap ka beta hai….
    Ga(y) log aise hi hote gain dusre ka naam leke kuchh bhi likh dete hain…

  • @rejan

    Abey jhandu, read the comment carefully I clearly mentioned that according to #indicine. If you don’t believe in #indicine or its data WTF are you doing here? Get lost from here.

    By calling HAHK a Madhuri film indirectly you are accepting that DTPH, Devdas etc are successful only bcz of Madhuri. Srk’s presence had nothing to do with their success. Isn’t??

    Chal maan leta hoon ki KKHH wasn’t Salman Khan film….. Still, what will you say about these records?
    ATHG :
    Salman – 1
    Srk – 0

    HGOTD :
    Salman – 2
    Srk – 0

    BHOTD :
    Salman – 2
    Srk – 0.

    Or will you blabber that ATHG, HGOTD and BHOTD don’t have any value???

  • Hats off to his dedication. His look will get more audience than SSR-Kriti jodi. Still will be a flop or average grosser. Reincarnation genre is done & dusted !!!!!!!

  • @Fake Tiger : You proved Srk fans are masters in fakeism and ancestors of Photoshop bhakts !!!!!!!! Lol

    You just made a mockery of your idol and his entire fans.

  • @Rejan : What about MPK ? was there a Madhuri in it ? The irony is Sooraj Barjatya never casted Madhuri after HAHK and he worked with Salman in 2 more movies. You keep living in illusion n far from reality. Fake king ke feku fans !!!!!!!

  • Salman Khan I idolise him can’t sleep without googling him. He is my jaan I will remain batchelor for him forever. Bhai love you and tubelight mwah
