Would love to get Oscar from Meryl Streep: Rajkummar Rao

With ‘Newton’ going to the Academy Awards as India’s official entry, Rajkummar Rao says if the film wins, he would love to be presented the trophy by Hollywood icon Meryl Streep.

The 33-year-old actor is upbeat about the Amit Masurkar- directed dark comedy representing the country at the Oscars but he is prefers to be grounded about it.

“I hope the new year brings along a lot of happiness for the whole country. We are very hopeful for ‘Newton’, and I hope the new year will be great for the film too”.

“I would like to walk the red carpet at the Oscars, but I am not dreaming about it. It is better to be neutral and happy about the fact that it is India’s official entry for the Oscars this year,” Rajkummar told.

When asked who he would like to receive the golden statuette from, the actor said: “Meryl Streep or Daniel Day- Lewis. It doesn’t matter who gives it, I just hope we get it!”

Year 2017 has been rewarding for Rajkummar with films such as “Trapped”, “Bareilly Ki Barfi”, “Newton” and the web- series “Bose: Dead or Alive” receiving a lot of praise.
