Nepotism in the film industry, according to actor Rajkummar Rao, "will always be there." In a recent interview, Rajkummar added that there are plenty of prospects in the sector even though there is some nepotism. He talked about his classmates and friends who are becoming well-known on OTT platforms, such as Jaideep Ahlawat and Pratik Gandhi.

Love Sex Aur Dhokha (2010) was Rajkummar's acting debut, but he rose to prominence with supporting appearances in Gangs of Wasseypur-Part 2 and Talaash: The Answer Lies Within (2012). The White Tiger, Stree, Aligarh, Ludo, Newton, Kai Po Che, Shahid, Queen, Bareilly Ki Barfi, and others all featured him. Shahid earned Rajkummar the National Film Award.


Rajkummar stated in an interview with India Today, "There will always be nepotism, but there are numerous options now. I have acquaintances who were in my class but are now well-known because of OTT platforms. like Pratik (Gandhi) in Scam 1992 and Jaideep (Ahlawat), who performed admirably in Pataal Lok. There will be nepotism, but your work and talent will shine through."

He also discussed his favorite genres of movies as well as popular ones. "No one has the secret to making a successful movie; you just have to keep trying and then let fate decide. I haven't given the success of South Asian films much attention, but perhaps it's because they are well-made and the effort paid off. But according to my theory, the movie industry passes through different phases. Once, we were filming music videos in Switzerland, then we started presenting stories about small towns, and now it's time for the larger-than-life cinema that the South has to give. But as an actor, I like to work on movies that I can be proud of, not necessarily ones that are successful. I may continue to tell stories as long as my producers are profitable. My preference is to would rather make movies that I can be proud of. I'm not interested in belonging to a herd. If my movies don't gross $100 crore at the box office, that's fine, he continued.

In the upcoming action-thriller movie Hit: the First Case, Rajkummar will star opposite Sanya Malhotra. The anticipated thriller, which is being directed by Sailesh Kolanu, is a Hindi translation of the Telugu original of the same name. The movie will debut in theatres on July 15.


Rajkumar will appear in many other films besides Hit. He is starring alongside Janhvi Kapoor in Sharan Sharma's Mr. and Mrs. Mahi. Rajkummar also appears in the films Bheed by Anubhav Sinha, Second Innings by Abhishek Jain, the biopic of Shrikanth Bolla, and Swagat Hai by Hansal Mehta.
