At the Made in China trailer launch, Rajkummar Rao got emotional as he talked about his father’s demise, and said that his father saw the trailer of his latest film before he passed away.
His father Satyapal Yadav passed away in Gurugram on 5 September, while the actor was shooting for Rooh-i-Afza and went back to the shoot the next day. Rajkummar was interacting with the media at the trailer launch, with co-actor Mouni Roy, director Mikhil Musale and producer Dinesh Vijan on Wednesday.
"When my father was in the hospital, the trailer was just getting ready for release. I requested Dinesh (Vijan) that I really want to show the trailer to my father, because doctors were saying things. Dinesh was really kind, he sent me the link and my father saw the trailer, and I’m sure he’ll watch the film too. His blessings are with me." - Rajkummar Rao
The actor lost his mother three years ago when he was filming Newton. “One can never get over such a loss. It happened three years ago also, when I lost my mother when I was shooting for Newton, and I went back the next day to continue shooting. This time also, I came back the next day after my father’s death to shoot for Rooh-i-Afza. My parents are really proud of me being an actor and this is the only thing they wanted me to do,” he added.
He also spoke about working with Priyanka Chopra in the Netflix film The White Tiger. “I am very excited about that film. It's a great book and has a beautiful story. I have met (director) Ramin (Bahrani). He is a great guy. I am really looking forward to start working with Priyanka in the film. I think Priyanka is phenomenally talented, so we will have a good time together while shooting the film,” he said.
