10 Years of Shahid: The Film That Earned Rajkummar Rao a National Award
Mumbai: The Indian film industry is no stranger to exceptional talent, but there are some actors who stand out with their versatility and the ability to seamlessly embody diverse characters. Rajkummar Rao is undoubtedly one of these exceptional actors, and as we celebrate a decade since the release of “Shahid,” it’s the perfect time to reflect on how this film marked a pivotal moment in his career. Directed by Hansal Mehta, this film tells the story of lawyer and human rights activist Shahid Azmi.
The titular role of Shahid Azmi was brought to life by none other than Rajkummar Rao, a performance that would become one of the most significant milestones in his career. It highlighted his ability to transform into any character and deliver a powerful performance. Rajkummar Rao’s portrayal of Azmi earned him the National Film Award for Best Actor.
“Shahid” was a game-changing moment in Rajkummar Rao’s career, not just because of the accolades it brought him but because it showcased his remarkable chameleon-like ability to slip into any character’s skin and breathe life into it.
A decade after this remarkable film, his journey continues, and we eagerly await the characters he will bring to life in the years to come. Looking forward, Rajkummar Rao continues to entertain audiences with a pipeline of exciting projects, including “Vicky Vidya Ka Woh Wala Video,” “Stree 2,” and “SRI.”
