Within a span for eight years, Rajkummar Rao has made a steady rise to the top, becoming one of the most distinctive and trusted actors of Hindi cinema. The actor is like a chameleon and can easily slip into characters with ease and perfection. Whether it is a shy lover boy, a conniving shop owner, a disciplinarian officer, or a righteous lawyer - he excels in every role.

So here are XX moments that prove that when it comes to making the character a part of yourself, no one aces the game like Rajkummar Rao.


1. Newton - His Unshaken Idealism - In a battle between cynicism and idealism, we always favor the former, but Rajkummar Rao's Newton Kumar is perhaps the only character who could convince you to support the latter. Throughout the movie, you are amazed by his strong beliefs but it is the last scene where Rajkummar's talent shines through. Despite facing physical and emotional turmoil, Rao's unshaken principles convinces you to walk away with a belief in idealism.

2. Queen - His Innocent Flirting - We all left watching Queen hating the character of Vijay portrayed by Rajkummar Rao. But one scene which remains intact in our memories is where Vijay tries to woo Rani. He cleverly flirts his way into her good books as he asks her, "Manchow? Queen, maan jaao?". Rajkummar's playful innocence coupled with charm completely makes us believe why Kangana's character falls for him.

3. Bareilly Ki Barfi - His Perfect Swaying Between Two Extreme Personalities - Who else could play the role of Pritam Vidrohi to perfection besides Rajkummar Rao? The actor nails the role as a shy, reserved, and a goody-two-shoes turning to an uncouth good-for-nothing young man within the span of seconds. When Rajkummar Rao goes from harassing the waiter by asking him 'kaun poochega kya lijiyega?' to the nervous friend asking, 'theek tha bhaiya?", you agree with Ayushmann Khurran - 'baaja phad diya tum!"

4. Shahid - He Sheds His Stoic Demeanor For A Heated Argument - The movie is a testament that Rajkummar can display a range of emotions that even seasoned actors find it difficult to achieve. In one of the most powerful scenes, Shahid gets into a heated argument when the prosecuting attorney brings up his past. His questions her for believing why every man who spends time in jail is considered a terrorist and immediately, controls his emotions to continue
questioning the witness.

5. Kai Po Che - His Emotional Outburst - Throughout the movie we see Rao's Govind as a money-minded guy but when Ishaan played by Sushant Singh Rajput steals his from his shop and gets into a fight with Omi played by Amit Sadh, it is Govind whose raw and emotional intensity steals the show. His sheer helplessness combined with an unfiltered anger is brilliantly portrayed by Rajkummar.

6. Trapped - His Struggles With His Phobia To Survive - In one of the most iconic scenes, Shaurya lets his survival instincts overcome his phobia of rats, and struggles to eat one, only to throw up the second he consumes it. Rajkummar Rao completely convinces you that even as his hunger drives him to impossible acts, his innate fear is hard to repress.
