It seems success is getting to Rajat Tokas
's head. This junior Prithviraj Chauhan and now Veer of NDTV Imagine’s ‘Dharam Veer’
is talking as if he has become a very established star. “Who else has got the best actor award at the age of 16?”, he asks?
says that he is very lucky to have got two completely different roles.
"While Prithvi went by the book, Veer is ready to cut corners as long
as the end purpose is served", states the actor. He has no issues
sharing share screen space with Vikrant Massey
. “Veer is still the main
lead. The only thing is that he is doing it for somebody, while
Prithiviraj was working for himself”, opines the actor.
Talking further about his Dharamveer co-star he says, “Vikrant and I
share a cordial relationship. We are neither enemies nor are we good
friends. I have only one funda in life and that is to work. You have to slog
very hard to retain the number one position”, he claimed.
One question which really irked Rajat was why he is sticking only to
mythos and period stories. “I have got success and love here, so why
should I do something else? And let’s face it, you would not have been
speaking to me had I not achieved a certain status in the industry”. He
also dismissed the idea of doing a reality show, “I want to be a lead
and not an anchor or dancer, that I should enter this genre”.
Post this NDTV Imagine period show, Rajat has got his eyes firmly on
major bollywood roles. “I am nursing few injuries at the moment. Once
they get all right, I will start pitching for films. This will be my last TV
appearance”, he asserted.
