"If I will keep doing the same thing over and over again then, I will get bored and the audience will also get bored of me", Rajkumar says. Flickr

Actor Rajkummar Rao, whose latest film “Fanney Khan” has received mixed response from the audience, says that box office success of a movie is not his aim.

Rajkummar was interacting with media to promote his forthcoming film “Stree” on Tuesday here.


The critically acclaimed actor has been often praised by critics and audiences. But he is yet to transform that into a major box office success like his male counterparts such as Varun Dhawan, Ranbir Kapoor and Ranveer Singh have been able to.

Asked whether he is working on that aspect, the National Award winner said: “That is not in my hands so, I don’t have any idea how to work on that aspect.”


The critically acclaimed actor has been often praised by critics and audiences.

“My job is to deliver good performances. My last year’s films, whether it was ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’, ‘Trapped’ or ‘Newton’, have done good business. So it is not that my films haven’t done well at the box office.

“My films are doing good business. That’s the reason why I am constantly working in many films. Box office success of a film is not my aim because it is not in my hands. My job is to act and I get satisfied when people appreciate my work.”

Rajkummar has featured in different kinds of films. Now he is doing a horror comedy.

Asked whether it’s his conscious effort to act in different types of films, he said: “Definitely. That’s my conscious effort because that’s the fun of being an actor… to do different kinds of stuff.

“If I will keep doing the same thing over and over again then, I will get bored and the audience will also get bored of me. Therefore, my effort is to choose unique characters or I do something different while playing those characters which will excite me and the audience.”

“Stree”, which also stars Shraddha Kapoor, is scheduled to release on August 31. (IANS)

While everyone is making their big fat Indian wedding dreams come true, they are also adding their carbon footprint and undue energy consumption. Modern couples are now looking for ways to have a wedding with a sustainably conscious mindset. It's become about incorporating less waste, locally sourced and seasonal food, natural materials over the use of plastic. Mindful wedding planning and decor includes the use of recycled paper and goods along with eco-friendly venue needs. Check out this quick guide to achieve a sustainably conscious wedding without compromising on luxury:

Choose locally sourced material to uplift artisans
Sustainable can be luxurious too, incorporate some native flavour into the decor and theme. With the use of locally sourced materials and local artisans coming into play, the wedding instantly becomes sustainable. Include the work of local vendors ensure minimal packaging requirements, thus saving on unnecessary plastic and lamination. It also decreases the need for transporting elements from other cities and hence lowers the carbon footprint. For instance, at one of our weddings, we made use of sand art for a setup in Jodhpur. This helped promote local work while also being environmentally friendly with zero wastage of other materials. In another instance from Rajasthan, the traditional glass-blown technique was used to build decor items while giving a cultural touch to the destination wedding.
