(Calcutta Tube) ‘Udaan’ lead actor Rajat Barmecha doesn’t mind being tagged as ‘cute’ by his female fans and says he is keen to work with Kareena Kapoor, but not as her younger brother.
‘I don’t mind being called cute. I don’t force myself to look like a dude. I know I am cute and I am not looking for an image change,’ Barmecha, 21, told IANS.
‘Even Imran Khan is termed as cute and when he tried to change his image with ‘Kidnap’ or ‘Luck’, it didn’t work. So I believe there will be some roles in the industry to suit my age and looks,’ he added.
Though, Barmecha doesn’t have any personal favourites in Bolywood, he would love to meet Salman Khan.
‘I like Salman Khan as a person. I would like to meet him and may be work with him as well. And Kareena Kapoor, I would love to work with her, but please, not as her younger brother,’ he added.
Set in Jamshedpur, ‘Udaan’ is the story of Rohan (Rajat), a teenage boy, who returns home after eight years and finds himself closeted with an authoritarian father and a younger half brother, who he didn’t even know existed.
A story about a father-son relationship, ‘Udaan’ is Rohan’s journey, who is forced to work in his father’s steel factory and study engineering against his wishes, as he strives to forge his own life out of his given circumstances to pursue his dream of becoming a writer and leaves his house to chart his own course.
