Stardom can add pressure on you: Rajkummar Rao

Actor Rajkummar Rao’s ‘Stree’ has broken records and crossed the Rs 100 crore mark at the box office, however, Rao says that he does not think he has achieved a ‘star’ status in Bollywood.

Speaking at the success party of Stree, Rao said, “I just don’t think about stardom, I have never thought about it that way. I like working, I love my job, and that’s what I do. I can’t work under pressure, all these things can add pressure. For me, it is my job and I strive to do it in the best way possible.”

The 34-year-old who is on a golden run, further added that he is humbled by the response the horror-comedy received, though he never gets caught up in the numbers game.

“I don’t really think about the box office but I want my films to do well. I knew that we’ve made a good film. However, none of us expected the film to do so well at the box office, and that it is still running everywhere. It is definitely one of the most profitable films of the year.”

When asked about the film’s sequel, Rao said, “Just wait for a couple of more months for more details on this. We are definitely looking at ‘Stree 2’. We should start shooting early next year.”

Directed by Amar Kaushik, Stree also features Shraddha Kapoor, Pankaj Tripathi, Aparshakti Khurrana and Abhishek Banerjee.
