Bollywood actor, who made his Bollywood debut with Vikramaditya Motwane’s Udaan, recently revealed that he was jealous and disheartened, when Ranveer Singh bagged Best actor award for his performance in Band Baaja Baaraat. Talking to NBT, Rajat said, , “In 2013, almost all the awards went to Udaan. It even got the Best Film award. But when it came to announcing the Best Actor, it was Ranveer and not me, and I was a little disheartened at that time.” He futher added, “Everyone had praised me a lot for my work in the film. Amitabh Bachchan even wrote a blog about me and Udaan. So I couldn’t digest the fact that even after Udaan got the Best Film award, how was I not the best actor? I was present in each and every frame throughout the film.”
Rajat revealed at one event he and Ranveer shared the Best Actor award and RS made him lift the trophy. “This was when I was just 21 years old. I was quite naive then and these feelings were only a product of my naivety. I never had any hard feelings for Ranveer or never wished anything bad for him. Now after all these years, I have become more mature and now I find these stories really funny. I wouldn’t react the same way if such a thing happens today. Also, I am not jealous of Ranveer anymore,” said Barmecha.
Talking about Udaan, the film also featured Ronit Roy, Manjot Singh, Anand Tiwari and Ram Kapoor in pivotal roles.
