Rajkummar Rao also shared excitement regarding the movie and said that it will raise an important subject. However, he did not reveal much information about his character or the social issue which the movie will raise. “I have always found myself gravitating towards stories that trigger conversation. Even as an entertainer, I want my work to get people thinking. This is an important subject and the character needs me to stretch myself as an artist, beyond my comfort zone. I can’t wait to start shooting and lose myself in this universe,” Rajkummar Rao said.

Talking about the movie, Anubhav Sinha said, “Bheed is one of those titles that the whole team jumps at the moment you propose it. To me, casting was crucial. Raj is a very intriguing actor. He is one of the very few actors who can be so successfully transparent in a story. There always was a keen desire to work with him and I am looking forward to it. I am honoured to have a solid collaborator like Bhushan on my side who is such a strong pillar and a sturdy sounding board.”

Apart from Bheed, Rajkummar Rao will also be seen in Hum Do Hamare Do and Netflix film Monica O My Darling.
