Rajkummar has a lot going for him this year. The versatile actor was quite excited to receive the Critics Choice Best Actor award for his film, Newton at the Screen Awards 2017 held recently in Mumbai.

Rajkummar says, “I would like to thank the director of Newton, Amit Masurkar, producers Aanand L Rai and Manish Mundra without their support the movie wouldn’t have been made. I would also like to thank the audience for giving so much love to Newton and if you continue doing that I’m sure we will be able to make 10 more Newton.”
With five impressive releases so far – Trapped, Behen Hogi Teri, Bareilly Ki Barfi, Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana and the latest one being Newton, the year certainly belongs to Rajkummar Rao! The versatile actor is also eagerly awaiting for his upcoming web series Bose to be streamlined on ALTBalaji.
Rajkummar was recently bestowed upon Asia’s highest honour ‘Asia Pacific Screen Award’ for Newton and ‘Indian of the Year’ CNN News 18 award. The versatile actor, who was honoured with a National Award four years ago, is now unabashedly breaking rules on his way to stardom, starring in a web series titled Bose, making a smart move by catering to the digital audience, after delivering box office hits.
