Rajkummar Rao starrer Omerta which released on 4th May mostly got the critics thumbs while the box office collections showed a lukewarm response from the audience. Directed by Hansal Mehta, Omerta was the fifth collaboration for the actor-director duo of Rajkummar Rao and Hansal Mehta.
Prior to Omerta, Rajkummar worked with Hansal Mehta in films like ‘Shahid’, Citylights, ‘Aligarh’ and the web series ‘Bose – Dead or Alive. However, now the good news is that Rajkummar Rao will be again be seen starring in Hansal Mehta’s next titled ‘Swagat Hai’.
Interestingly the actor’s real-life love interest actress Patralekha has been roped down as the lead for the film. Rajkummar Rao and Patralekha have earlier featured together in Hansal Mehta’s 2014 film ‘Citylights’. Their sensitive portrayal and pairing had got a thumbs up from the viewers and critics. Since then, fans have been waiting for this couple to team up for another film. Patralekha’s earlier release this year, Nanu Ki Jaanu – received a tepid response at the box office.
Now, the wait is over as the duo will be featuring in Hansal Mehta’s ‘Swagat Hai’. It will be quite interesting to see this Jodi once again on the silver screen.
Talking about Rajkummar’s other projects, the actor has many films in the pipeline this year. He will be seen in the upcoming film ‘Fanney Khan’ starring Anil Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. Besides this, the actor will be seen in ‘Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga’ with Sonam Kapoor, Anil Kapoor and Juhi Chawla, ‘Stree’ with Shraddha Kapoor and ‘Mental Hai Kya’ with Kangana Ranaut.
