Rajkummar Rao on dancing in Bareilly Ki Barfi: I am open to itRajkummar Rao, who will be seen tapping his toes for the very first time in Ayushmann Khurrana and Kriti Sanon starrer Bareilly Ki Barfi said that he is not scared of dancing.
He may have been mostly associated with off-beat indie cinema but actor Rajkummar said he would love to be seen in a typical Bollywood film that involves dance and music. While both, Sanon and Khurrana have done the song-and- dance routine in films, this is fairly a new terrain for Rao who insisted he always loved dancing.
"I didn't have any apprehension to dance. I used to dance a lot while growing up, that's how I started doing my stage activities. But when I fell in love with acting, I forgot everything else. Once you're a dancer, you're always a dancer. People get happily surprised that 'oh he can dance too,'" Rao told reporters at the music launch of the film, here last night.
To which, Sanon added, "He dances very well. If you watch him in the song, he is having a blast, he is carefree." The Trapped actor said he did not have any disdain towards dancing in films.
"I always wanted to be an actor and act. You can then add your 8-pack abs, learn horse riding and everything. I am still exploring acting and if someone wants me to dance, probably I can give them that as well,'' he said. "I love dancing, I am open to it. If somebody wants me to dance, I'll do it all over again," he said.
Directed by Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari, Bareilly Ki Barfi is scheduled to release on August 18. The film chronicles the story of a lively young small town girl and her equations with her family and the two men vying for her attention.
