Rajkummar Rao signs his first hardcore action ‘Maalik’

Rajkummar Rao has reportedly signed on for his first hardcore action film, ‘Maalik’.

In his 14-year career in the film industry, Rao has ventured into the action genre only once before with ‘Hit: The First Case’ in 2022. ‘Maalik’, directed by Pulkit of Bhakshak fame, is expected to begin production in September.

A source told Mid-Day, “While Rajkummar has established himself with strong performances, he hasn’t yet developed the image of a mass hero. With his upcoming projects, he aims to explore this new territory. When Jay and Pulkit approached him for Maalik, Raj immediately agreed as the film will showcase him in a new light. It’s an emotion-driven action entertainer that will see him performing high-octane stunts. He has already started working on his physique to meet the role’s demands for a more muscular frame.”
