Actor Rajat Barmecha, who shot to fame along with his debut movie Udaan, has stated in a latest interview that, at one time, he was jealous of Ranveer Singh. The two made their performing debut the identical yr – 2010.
Rajat spoke to Nav Bharat Times the place he talked about that at one time Ranveer swept all of the awards for his work in Band Baaja Baraat, whereas he obtained none. “In 2010, Udaan released. The same year Band Baaja Barat released. Ranveer Singh and my film released in the same year. Band Baaja came in December and Udaan came in July. From July till December, most of the people said that Rajat Barmecha will get best debut award this time. Some people in other common group of friends had said that ‘this guy Rajat has done a good job’ and that it is going to be a ‘tough competition’. But all the awards went to Ranveer.”
“There was one award function where we shared the award. He was gracious enough to let me enter the stage first. He had a lot of love for the film. Yet for a couple of years I felt continuous hatred, or maybe that bachpane wali hatred ki shayad mujhe milta toh mujhe aaj movies mil rahi honti. Abhi toh mujhe bahot hi bewaoofi wali cheez lagti hai woh (I felt a child-like hatred that I had won it I would have many movie offers. Now, I find it all so foolish).”
He talked about that he would really feel jealous and envious when different actors can be praised for his or her work. Rajat spoke about how it might disturb him that whereas his movie can be praised and so would its director Vikramditya Motwane, nobody spoke about his performing. This continued even after Amitabh Bachchan wrote a weblog on the movie by which he praised Rajat for his performing and requested him to at all times choose such roles.

In the wake of the tragic demise of Sushant Singh Rajput, the problems of nepotism and the therapy of outsiders have been a lot in debate. Speaking to Mumbai Mirror a while again, Rajat had stated there was a time when he had been snubbed on the crimson carpet. “Everywhere I went, I was being complimented for my performance. As a 21-year-old actor, it gave me hope. I read every script that came my way, but they were all mediocre, formulaic films or those in which I was there throughout, but added no value. I couldn’t afford to do a bad film because then, I’d be written off as a one-film wonder.”
He added how regardless of reward from Amitabh and Shah Rukh Khan, he didn’t get any consideration at occasions. “But on the red carpet, those with no project to their name but coming from a film background were clicked more than me, while the producers who had praised my work earlier, did not recognise me,” he added.
