Actor Rajkummar Rao is undoubtedly one of the best actors we have in the country. The ace actor has been largely responsible for bringing forward a new era of content-based cinema in India but life wasn’t always so rosy. He recalls a time when he was beaten up by 25 boys in college and had to beg them to spare his face as he wanted to be an actor.

“I moved to this new, really modern, fancy, Blue Bells school in Gurgaon and I was a big, I’m still a big fan of Shah Rukh Khan. So I saw Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and I saw this one girl, playing basketball, same hair, and I was like ‘Anjali’. I was like, ‘I found her mother, I found her (imitating Shah Rukh).’ And then somehow, we started dating but she had a boyfriend,” he had told EIC vs Bollywood.

“It was a Jat boy and then, of course, they came to thrash me. Some 25 Jat boys from law college and by that time, I was a saint guy. I was like ‘Now no more fighting, this is enough. I have to be an actor.’ They were thrashing me, 25 boys were like, ‘Take out the gun, take out the gun, shoot him, take out the gun.’ I was sitting like (makes a gesture of being huddled up). My two Punjabi, cute friends were like ‘Don’t hit him, hit me if you want to’. The only thing I was screaming is, and trust me, it’s a true story, ‘Don’t hit my face, I want to be an actor,'” he added.
