Rajeev Khandelwal’s professionalism!

Some actors would go to any lengths to bag a role.

And then there are some like Rajeev Khandelwal who would go to extreme lengths to look convincing in a role.

For his role in Aamir, the handsome actor of popular serials like Kahin To Hoga, Kya Hadsa Kya Haqeeqat and Left Right Left will be seen in the same outfit from start to finish.

Set in the Muslim dominated, but poor, areas of Mumbai, the film explores the seedy life of the city through Rajeev’s character, who finds himself lost in the streets.

And like the professional he is, Rajeev insisted on wearing the same filthy shirt throughout the shooting of the film.

Says Director Rajkumar Gupta, “We bought few shirts of the same size, colour and brand but Rajeev insisted that he should continue with the same shirt so that it would look real.”

He adds, “Rajeev, however dried his shirt in sun and also applied lot of perfume on it to make the ordeal a little more bearable.”

Rajeev’s popularity!!!

Rajeev’s popularity

We met up with the most eligible bachelor in tellyland, Rajeev Khandelwal on the sets of Left Right Left. While chatting up with us, he narrated a rather dreadful experience in the Pink City Jaipur where he was hounded by a gang of 20 girls in a disco.

“As I entered the disco some 15 to 20 girls came running towards me. All of them wanted to dance with me; they were yelling and pulling me towards themselves. It was a bit scary as I was not really able to handle so many girls at the same time. Ultimately, I left the venue within the next ten minutes. Later, after an hour I returned back and guess what! Those girls were still waiting for me. I was pleased by their attitude and decided to shake a leg with all of them,” adds Rajeev.

This is not the first time that Rajeev faced such a situation. Two years back, one had heard of instances where girls used to forcefully enter the sets of Kahiin to Hoga just to get a glimpse of the actor. Well! We can only wish Rajeev All the Best!
