Nargis Fakhri and Rajkummar Rao go to Hollywood

Nargis Fakhri and Rajkummar Rao

Rajkummar Rao is on a film-signing spree. After wrapping up Bareily Ki Barfi with Ayushmann Khurrana and Kriti Sanon, the actor begins work on his Hollywood project, 5 Weddings.

The Namrata Singh Gujral directorial also features Nargis Fakhri, Bo Derek and Candy Clark. “Namrata saw some of my work on Netflix and other platforms following which I was approached to play the leading man who’s a cynical cop with Punjab Police,” says Rajkummar excitedly.

About his equation with Nargis’ character, he reveals, “Harbhajan is assigned to escort Nargis’s character, an Indian girl raised in the US who has come down to India to do a magazine feature on Indian weddings. What had seemed like a simple assignment turns complicated thanks to this cop who is convinced it’s an espionage operation.”

The actor also reveals that the film revolved around not one, but five wedding. Will one of the five weddings be Nargis’s and his? “That’s a secret for now,” grins Rajkummar.
