Here are some of the interesting revelations the two stars made: 1. Bhumi Pednekar revealed that she was YRF’s casting director Shanoo Sharma’s assistant when she auditioned for Dum Laga Ke Haisha. She was already over 80 kgs and had to put on 94 kgs weight for the role.
2. Rajkummar Rao talked about his journey from starring in Love, Sex And Dhoka to 100 crore hit Stree. He said not much has changed in him but people have started noticing and giving him work. He revealed that he is a trained martial artist and not many people know about it.

4. Rajkummar Rao even talked about his eight-year relationship with CityLights actress Patralekhaa. When asked about why they aren’t getting married yet, he said, “Honestly, I am not ready to get married yet. We are in a very happy relationship and we are very happy about it. And our parents are not complaining, so there is no pressure to get married. And I think both of us are just busy in our respective careers. Marriage is, not that we don’t believe in it, just that right now we don’t think it’s the right time. It’s a mutual thing.”
5. When asked whether she has been insecure about him with any of his female co-stars, Rajkummar said, “There have been times she has said, ‘Dekho, zara isse sambhal ke rehna’. She is a very broadminded girl. She was brought up in Shillong. They have a spectacular culture. She is a bong from Shillong. But, nothing serious as such. We are best friends actually. I think it’s a great thing when your partner is your best friend. You would love to come back home and spend all your wonderful time with your partner. You can share everything – you can have fun, dance, sing, go out to watch a film. It’s not about those lovey-dovey talks. It’s about discussing everything in life.
6. Bhumi Pednekar revealed that she had auditioned Ranveer Singh, Rajkummar Rao and Kriti Sanon. She thought Raj was okay in his audition. And she revealed that when Disha Patani had auditioned, she was a little raw. She also said that she has auditioned Parineeti Chopra to an extent and she was really good. This was during Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl.

But, when asked whether it was Ayushmann Khurrana (Dum Laga Ke Haisha, Shubh Mangal Savdhaan), Neil Bhoopalam (Lust Stories) or Akshay Kumar, she did not reveal the name. But, she did agree that everyone would drool over Akshay’s fitness during Toilet – Ek Prem Katha.
8. Bhumi said that she was to be paired opposite someone for an extramarital affair, she would pick Vicky Kaushal. But, she was asked to choose between Vicky and Ayushmann Khurrana as the most talented actor, she chose the latter.
