Rajkummar Rao says money has never been a driving force behind his decision to do films. He picks his projects based on the content. Rajkummar opened up about his funda when he appeared on BFFs With Vogue Season 3 recently.
When host Neha Dhupia asked Rajkummar what changed after back-to-back box office success, he said nothing. “For me, now also it is about the film. It’s about the story. The only thing that has changed is that I get to work with bigger filmmakers and bigger films,” he said. The actor added, “Apart from that, nothing has changed in my life.
For Trapped, I didn’t get paid at all. So, money is not important. It’s the story, the content I am a part of. I didn’t know that Stree’ would turn out to be such a big box office success, but it did. It’s a great feeling when a film does great at box office. But for me, I was not chasing that, I am still not.”
