CityLights actor Rajkummar Rao in a comic avatar in Dolly Ki Doli

CityLights actor is ready to break away from his previous body of work and be seen in a comic role

Rajkummar Rao, known for playing serious and intense roles, will show his funny side in comedy-drama Dolly Ki Doli, says Arbaaz Khan.

Starring Sonam Kapoor in the title role, Dolly Ki Doli is Arbaaz’s production and is being directed by Abhishek Dogra. It also features Pulkit Samrat.

“His character in the film is different from the serious kind of roles he is currently doing in most of his films. People will like him in this particular role,” the 46-year-old said here Monday at a screening of Rajkummar’s film Citylights.

“It is a little more comic. He is playing a very interesting role,” he added.

Dolly Ki Doli is about a girl who loots men after marrying them and then runs away.
