Rajkummar Rao may be known for his versatility but the actor, it seems, is open to experimenting in each project he undertakes. News now has it that in Ramesh Sippy۪s forthcoming Shimla Mirchi۪, he will be seen romancing dreamgirl Hema Malini.
Speaking to IANS, the actor revealed, It’s (‘Shimla Mirchi’ is) a very unusual film. It’s a rom-com and the treatment of the film is going to be very different. I am extremely excited to romance Hema Malini on screen.
The film is said to be a story about a mother and daughter (Rakul Preet Singh) who fall for the same man. The film will be widely shot in Shimla and I have been asked to gain weight by the makers of the film. I am working very hard to gain weight as I had lost seven kg for ‘Citylights’. I have a personal trainer who is working with me to help me gain weight, added Rao.
The film is expected to commence in September.
