Talking about method acting, one star to take note of is, Rajkummar Rao. It is revealed that the actor who recently wowed all of us in Newton, will be going the extra mile, doing an erotic scene where he will be seen, performing in the nude.
This is said to be Rajkummar’s latest and boldest, in the film Omerta that has already been released to the international media. The biopic is based on global terrorist, Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh and was recently screened at the Toronto International Film Festival.
"In a sequence Rajkummar has not only shed all his clothes and gone completely nude on screen, but he’s also shown enacting a violent love-making scene”, says a source. “It was a sequence where the terrorist is shown brutally copulating with a prostitute. Both director Hansal and Rajkummar decided not to fake the scene. Hansal had to look for an actress who was willing to go all the way with his leading man on screen. The result is stunning.” an official was quoted saying.
Rajkummar Rao confirmed the same in a media statement saying, “I’m very comfortable with my body and if a scene genuinely demands nudity, I don’t mind it. As long as it’s there for the scene and not to titillate the audience. Be it LSD, Shahid or now Omerta. These are all very powerful scenes in extremely relevant contexts.”
Seems like an exciting project, doesn’t it?
