Most actors are known to have busy schedules, but Raj Kummar Rao has gone one step ahead. He has been shooting for back-to-back films for over 200 days now. A source says, “Raj Kummar has his plate full at the moment. The marathon schedule started with Aligarh, and since then, he has been shooting continuously for 200 days, without a single break.”

Raj Kummar has been juggling multiple projects simultaneously since September last year. The actor is not only working on his forthcoming film — a reported black comedy — with director Amit Masurkar, but he is also busy with director Vikramaditya Motwane’s next, director Hansal Mehta’s forthcoming film, and film-maker Ramesh Sippy’s movie.

The source adds, “He usually does two films a year. But this time, he has gone all out, and is gearing up for four releases in 2016. He has had no time to rest, and wants to take a break only once he wraps up everything. Playing multiple characters while simultaneously shooting is the biggest struggle for him.”

The actor says, “It was only when my team pointed out to me that I realised that I have been working for all these days; 200 days is a huge number. I was taken by surprise.”
