Rajkummar Rao shared that he spent a lot of time with Srikanth Bolla and discussed his challenging role.

During today's trailer launch event of Srikanth on April 9, the 39-year-old actor discussed how he prepared to portray the visually-impaired industrialist Srikanth Bolla.

The Badhaai Do actor shared, "I wanted (Srikanth Bolla) to make him feel like I'm acting. For this I spent much time with Srikanth. This film is not about Srikanth being visually impaired."

 "That's something is there, it's a story. We are showing a special story. It is a fact that he is visually impaired but we are not going to focus on him being visually impaired."

"Because when I met Srikanth, we were very normal. We were talking, discussing. He is very witty, very funny. I asked him so many questions and he was very open to the idea. He opened his world in front of me. It is my responsibility as an actor to take the best from him."

"I and Tushar (Hiranandani) used to visit many visually-impaired schools and spent hours. I wanted to put a reality on screen. The effort was to become Srikanth whenever I went to the set until we packed up."

"Just to act like a visually impaired person on camera and then cut and you become Raj and hanging out and chilling, that is not how I see my art. My art is too spiritual and meditative for me and I love it immensely," Rao added. 

The film Srikanth will be released on May 10, 2024.
