Rajkummar Rao played a few supporting roles in movies like Talaash and Gangs of Wasseypur before breaking out as one of Bollywood’s most bankable leading men. These roles didn’t garner him much attention, but they were just enough to catch people’s attention.

Revealed in a Netflix interview by Rao, “After watching Love Se Aur Dhokha, Anurag sir called me and said I am making a film and come and meet me. So, when I met him, there was just a story, rather a structure of a story. And at that time, the film he narrated was Faisal Khan vs Shamshad Alam. Nawaz and I went to Wasseypur and I had a small tape recorder, which I used to record people there.”

Speaking on how his role disappeared significantly, he stated, “After writing finished 3-4 months later, Anurag sir met me again and told me that my role had become much shorter. But I said no worries sir. He asked me would you still do it and I said of course. I am getting a chance to work with you. And I am glad I did actually.”

Rao played a tiny goon who works with Faizal Khan in the second instalment of the movie Gangs of Wasseypur 2 but subsequently betrays him out of greed. Manoj Bajpayee, Pankaj Tripathi, Richa Chadha, Huma Quereshi, Tigmanshu Dhulia, and other actors are among the ensemble cast in the movie.
