Updated: 5 March, 2019 10:35 am IST

In this edition of Off The Cuff, Bollywood actor Rajkummar Rao was in conversation with ThePrint’s Editor-in-chief Shekhar Gupta and Associate Editor Ruhi Tewari in Gurgaon – incidentally, the film star’s home-town. Rao, who has seen significant critical, as well as box-office, success with movies such as Stree, Bareilly Ki Barfi, Newton, Kai Po Che! and Shahid, walked the audience through his journey transforming from actor to character. For Rao, there is nothing he loves more than his craft – so much so, that he was happy to sing and dance for the audience.
