Noted director Sudhir Mishra has roped in Rajvvir Arora for his ambitious venture Chattisgarh. Rajvvir will play Abhimanyu, an institute lad caught in the web of college politics. Talking about his character the young actor revealed, “Abhimanyu is passionate about sports and is a simple guy. But circumstances suck him into dirty college politics which leads to violence and fisticuffs. The absurdity and unpredictability of life amidst the violence is what the film is about. All the important characters like a cop, a jawaan, a naxal or the budding youth, they all witness violence and want to curb it and bring about peace.” Rajvvir is looking forward to start shooting under the aegis of the veteran filmmaker as he says, “Working with Sudhirji will not only hone my acting skills but also help me gain knowledge about filmmaking.”
Having cast him in the film the director said, “I had watched 404 (2011) and Rajvvir really stood out in the film. He underplayed his character bringing across his sincerity on screen. As far as Chattisgarh is concerned, I want my actors to immerse themselves into the story and Rajvvir has the ability to become one with the character of my film. He has an impressive presence and there is something about that, that will take him far.”

As a budding actor, Rajvvir Aroraa has had his fair share of see-saw moments. Not many know that he was to debut in Mahesh Manjrekar’s hard-hitting film City of Gold/Lal Baug Parel. For his character, he learnt Marathi and spent valuable time with Manjrekar to get familiar with the nuances of the role. And though Rajvvir lost out on the part, the brief encounter with Manjrekar has been the most enriching experience for him as an actor.
He gained beneficial tips and inputs on acting. And it paid off when praise poured in from critics and the fraternity for his performance in the the psycho venture 404. Ironically, Rajvvir is now sharing screen space with Manjrekar in Ekaant. Manjrekar plays a gritty Mumbai cop, while Rajvvir plays a college boy passionate about filmmaking.
Shooting with Manjrekar was a learning experience too. Rajvvir says, “Performing with a stalwart like him was like reading a chapter on acting. I felt like a student from an acting school observing his teacher. And though I was very nervous, he put me at ease.” Ekaant, a new age thriller, also stars Rannvijay, Anaitha Nair and Imaad Shah.

Producer Nameeta Nair is ecstatic with having discovered a new musical talent in actor Imaad Shah who is the son of the legend Naseeruddin Shah. Imaad, who has proved his acting prowess already, now makes his debut as music composer with Prawal Raman’s psychological thriller 404 presented by Imagik Motion Pictures that releases this month. Twelve years ago the same banner gave Pritam his first break. Namita says, “I have always believed in promoting all round performers who have their own identity. Imaad’s style of music is fresh, soulful and today’s youth will connect with it instantly. I believe he is going to be the surprise package of this year and is a gift to the industry.” 404 is set in a medical college and has newcomer Rajvvir Aroraa in the main lead. Director Nishikant Kamat (Mumbai Meri Jaan, Force) is seen here as an actor. The banner’s next film Ekaant slated for a release later this year is also targetted at Gen Y.
