Rajkummar Rao Says His Different Looks in Judgementall Hai Kya Show the Complexity of His Character

Rajkummar Rao’s Judgementall Hai Kya has been embroiled in several troubles, ranging from the film’s initial title to controversial media events. As the film gears up for release on July 26, the look of the actors in the trailer and promos have drawn worldwide attention. Rajkummar, who has impressed with his unconventional characters, plays Keshav in the upcoming project. He is a troubled guy who has multiple faces and can’t be trusted completely. For the first half of the film, he is a guy-next-door who sports a rough and rugged look. In the second half, his character moves to London and he transforms into a suave and slick man.
Speaking about his role, Rao said, “I have two remarkably different looks in the film, one where I play this regular boy next door, living in the bustling city of Mumbai, and the other, where I step into this suave gentleman look. The difference in my styling reflects the complexity of my character, at the same time emphasising the normality of his behaviour.”
Keeping the essence of both the personalities in mind, stylist Sheetal Sharma has worked closely with director Prakash Kovelamudi to design different looks for Kangana and Rajkummar. “Bobby (Kangana) is very complex. Through her looks, we had to show her conflicting sides. She is crazy, suspicious and different, and all this had to be showcased through her look as well,” said Kovelamudi. The trailer which released earlier showed Kangana and Rajkummar as neighbours, who observe and are curious about each other. Kangana is a loud, bold woman who prefers going to the mental asylum over paying a fine. Rajkummar comes across as a very “normal” person, who is seen romancing Amyra Dastur. Then we see the lead actors being questioned by the police for the same murder and the two accusing each other of being sketchy. The audience can expect the film to a captivating murder mystery.
