Rajkummar was impressed with Nitesh Tiwari’s narrating style. Tiwari’s work in Dangal was praised all around the globe. He had directed the Aamir Khan starrer. The film became one of the top 20 grossing films ever in China.

“It was one of the best narrations, and personally I prefer reading my scripts, but Nitesh sir is such an amazing actor himself and he knew his characters inside out,” the actor added.

With a variety of performances in films like Raabta, Behen Hogi Teri, Aligarh and Trapped, Rajkummar Rao has proved that he can readily take on any challenge thrown at him.

Rajukummar Rao is a National Award winning actor. He won the National Award for his performance in widely appreciated film Shahid. Apart from Bareilly Ki Barfi, he is also working in Ittefaq alongside Sidharth Malhotra, Sonakshi Singh and Akshaye Khanna.
