Rajpal Yadav was last seen with Rubina Dilaik in Ardh where he played the role of a man named Shiva, who landed in Mumbai with the dream of becoming an actor. He was also seen reviving his titular character Chotta Pandit in Kartik Aaryan’s Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, which performed well at the box office. Talking about being one of the highlights of the movie despite not being the lead actor, Rajpal said he never had any apprehensions about playing a supporting role.
Rajpal told Filmfare: “Every actor dreams of being the lead role, but I have a bad habit of always leaving the doors open for roles. If the role is 3-4 scenes, I consider it a match. 20-20 cricket where I have 3 overs to play. I think this is the IPL of entertainment, and if I have 3-4 overs here that I’m doing well in, it’s fine. So I don’t ‘ve never kept those limits that say ‘lead hai toh lead hi karunga’ If there’s a character where I have the opportunity that gives me the hook, I take it.
“In Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, I think my habit of wanting to live the lives of unique characters has been good for me. If I hadn’t taken supporting roles, then a cartoonish character in Bhool Bhulaiyaa would never have come to me. And I love doing that. My character should appeal to kids, adults, and old people because at the end of the day, we don’t do reality, we do the illusion of reality. Even in the first Bhool Bhulaiyaa , I only have 3-4 scenes. But everyone loved him so much that everywhere there were so many miniatures. I dedicate this character to Charlie Chaplin because he also had a unique charm”, added the actor. He also thanked the audience and filmmaker Annes Bazmee for the film.
He will then be seen in the next film, Thai Massage. Produced by Imtiaz Ali, the film also stars Gajraj Rao, Divyenndu and Vibha Chibber. It will be released on August 26.
