Rajkummar Rao's forthcoming film 'JudgeMentall Hai Kya' has been marred by controversy owing to the ongoing ugly spat between the film's heroine Kangana Ranaut and a section of the media.
On Wednesday, during a visit to the Capital, National Award-winning actor Rajkummar seemed in the obvious mood to evade all talk of controversy and focus on bringing back media and public attention to the film.
"We have made a good film. The only thing I was expecting was to be a part of a good film. Focus on work and lead a normal life --- that's how I live my life.
I don't get into other things," the actor told IANS, adding: "I don't want too much attention. I am happy the way I am and I want people to know me for my work and nothing else."
Rajkummar may be seeking peace, but the film has been making news for several wrong reasons right from the start.
It was originally titled 'Mental Hai Kya'. The name was subsequently changed after many people including a section of psychiatrists voiced concerns over the use of the word "mental".
Adding to the list of controversies was the much-talked-about heated argument between Kangana and a news agency journalist at an event in Mumbai earlier this month.
'JudgeMentall Hai Kya' reunites 'Queen' co-stars Kangana and Rajkummar after a gap of around five years.
"Shooting with Kangana was like going back on the sets of 'Queen'. She is very sincere when it comes to work. She is passionate about it. That's how I also see my work, so we both constantly discuss scenes.
"A lot of people who have seen the film and the song said we share great chemistry. For me, acting is about reacting to your co-actor. She is brilliant as an actor."
