His line-up of movies is as eclectic as his reputation as one of the most talented young performers in Bollywood. It seems that 2017 is going to be Rajkummar Rao's year as he has five films releasing this year, the latest being Vikramaditya Motwane's 'Trapped'.

The 32-year-old actor will be seen playing a man struggling for survival as he gets stuck in a high-rise in the movie. "I am very happy. As a creative person this is what I look for. I feel complete as an actor as I am exploring something new, something exciting everyday," Rajkummar told about this phase in his career.

Besides 'Trapped', which released this Friday, the actor will be seen in 'Newton', 'Behen Hogi Teri', 'Bareilly Ki Barfi' and 'Omerta', where he has teamed up with frequent collaborator, Hansal Mehta. Rajkummar says Motwane, best known for 'Udaan' and 'Lootera', was always on his wish-list as he really appreciates the way the director captures human emotions.

"I always wanted to work with Vikramaditya Motwane. He deals with human emotions so beautifully. 'Trapped' is also an emotional story, though it is one of its kind and something that has not been tried before." It was physically gruelling to play the role of a man trapped in a high-rise building for days and Rajkummar stopped drinking water for days to get into the space of the character.

"Luckily, we shot it in a linear pattern. So, I just had to live the character every day as it came. Despite challenges, it was an organic process. That's the fun of being an actor. I could challenge myself and explore so much despite being confined in that house."

The actor says he really does not have a process when it comes to picking up projects, though his filmography - 'Shahid', 'CityLight', 'Aligarh', 'Dolly Ki Doli' and 'Queen' - suggests otherwise. "There was a struggle phase of about two years but 'LSD' changed things for me. I am open to everything that comes my way. I don't connect too many dots. If my heart says I should do something, I just do it. The only condition is that it should be something that I have not done before."
