Rajkumar Rao in a recent interview revealed that he was the initial choice to play the role of Vikraant Massey in the upcoming biopic, ‘Chhapaak’. He was initially chosen to play the male lead role opposite Deepika Padukone for the film.
Rajkumar’s shooting dates had a clash with the ‘Chhapaak’ schedule and hence he couldn’t take up the role. Eventually the role went to Vikrant Massey.
The actor loved the role yet he couldn’t take it up. He expressed his support to Deepika for the film in Twitter.
