Rajkummar Rao dons many hats, and not only do we feel that he carries each one of them effortlessly but also with perfection. Not only is the actor capable of entertaining his fans and audience to the hilt with his talent in front of the camera, but the method artist also brings out new aspects to the characters he plays on-screen.
From funny and playful, to serious and thoughtful, Rajkummar has wooed us all with his skills when it comes to getting into the skin of the character. However, it wouldn't be wrong to claim that he has considerable talent when it comes to tapping a foot to Bollywood numbers as well, and it is indeed safe to say that he is far better than a certain Khan in the industry. *wink wink*

But did you guys know that even before the acting bug bit Rajkummar, he was taken by the desire to make it as a successful dancer? Rajkummar disclosed the fact that as a young teenager, he really wished to become a dancer and even gave it a shot. Here is what he had to say about that phase when he visited the set of 'Super Dancer Chapter 3' along with the cast of 'Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga'.

Talking about that time from his childhood, Rajkummar said that he was very fond of dancing and wanted to become a dancer. He even travelled to Mumbai as a 16-year-old in order to give his shot at dancing and auditioned for the popular dance show 'Boogie Woogie'. However, things didn't go as planned and he got rejected. But Rajkummar is quick to add that the rejection made all the difference to his life.

Why? Because it gave him the option to explore other options and now look where he has ended up! “I was in the tenth standard when I came to Mumbai from Gurgaon for the first time, I always wanted to be a dancer and came here for the auditions of 'Boogie Woogie' where I got rejected. I was sixteen-years-old when I came here. I was very disheartened by that rejection then but today I am so glad that I got rejected. It got me to a better career that I am in today.”
Such a classic optimist Rajkummar is!
