Don't need to ask for work from Anurag, he's family
Rajat Barmecha made his Bollywood debut with Anurag Kashyap's production Udaan and the actor says he doesn't need to go asking for an acting job from his mentor because they are like family.
The 27-year-old actor, who debuted in the 2010 film directed by Vikramaditya Motwane, says if they believe that he is cut out for a particular role, they will surely approach him.
"Anurag and Vikram are like family in Bombay. I don't have to go upto them and tell them let's do something together. If they think I'm suited for
some role, I know they will let me know," Rajat said.
The actor says even if he was offered a film like Kashyap's magnum opus Gangs of Wasseypur, he would have felt out of place.
"As much as I would have loved to do a Gangs of Wasseypur, it was not a movie I could visualise essaying a role in. It would have been exciting
for me as an actor but I know in my gut, it was not for someone like me."
"It's a different genre if I keep my look in mind. There's nothing I could have done in 'GOW', so there's no point in saying that they didn't approach me or them saying that may be I could do it." .When asked why has he disappeared from the film scene post Udaan, Rajat says he was busy pursuing his other passion which is travelling.
"From the past two years, I have been solo backpacking.But I have not just been travelling, I did two films in the middle, which are slated for
release this year. I started shooting for the second season of 'Girl in the City', a Bindass web series", said the actor.
Rajat reprises his role as Kartik in the web series that premiered last year and says that the audience has been kind in embracing his character
with so much love.
"I was overwhelmed with the response. It was both unexpected and satisfying."
Rajat says his avatar in season two will be completely different from the first one and is something to watch out for. "It will be a 360-degree
transformation for my character and people are going to be blown away to see the new Kartik."
He will also feature in a film presented by Imtiaz Ali, tentatively titled, Leader, which will come out in the next three-four months.
'Girl in the City 2' will air in March.
