Mumbai, Feb 27 (IANS) Coming out of his “Aligarh” mould, Rajkummar Rao has embarked on a new cinematic journey to bring alive “Newton” on the silver screen. He will be shooting in an area with “almost no network”.
The actor, who found fame with critically-acclaimed films like “Shahid”, “Citylights” and “Queen”, is earning accolades for portraying a journalist in Hansal Mehta’s reality drama.
Amid all the appreciation, Rajkummar says it’s time to go incognito and will be shooting in a no-network area for black comedy “Newton”, which is directed by Amit Masurkar.
