This is indeed the year for Rajkummar Rao. He has been giving us hits one after the other, and entertained us in films like TRAPPED, BAREILLY KI BARFI, BEHEN HOGI TERI, NEWTON and many more.
But amongst all his film NEWTON was highly appreciated by fans and critics. The film is an official entry in Oscars as well.
If this news of Rajkummar Rao’s film being selected for Oscar made us feel proud, then his yet another win will make you go AWW! Rajkummar is on cloud 9 as he won Best Actor Award for NEWTON at the Asia Pacific Screen Awards in Brisbane on Thursday.
Raj’s happiness knew no bounds as he shared on social media how happy he is to receive the award and also kissed the trophy which he has posted on social media.
For the award show, Raj wore a black bandhgala and also thanked his mother.
Filmmaker Hansal Mehta congratulated the movie’s team. “Congratulations my darling Rajkummar Rao and amazing talents Mayank Tewari, Amit Masurkar. A win at the APSA is a huge achievement and should make India super proud.”
Soon Raj will be heading for Oscars.
Congratulations team NEWTON and all the best Raj for Oscars now.
