Rajkummar Rao is gearing up for the release of his upcoming film Mr & Mrs Mahi with Janhvi Kapoor. The film is all set to hit the big screens on May 31. The romantic sports drama film is directed by Sharan Sharma and produced by Zee Studios and Dharma Productions.

Recently, during a conversation with producer Karan Johar, Rajkummar talked about their film and opened up about his acting journey. He even revealed that he lost films to star kids.

Talking about how outsiders talk about star kids, Karan expressed, “Sometimes they are using it as a toll to make headlines. Immensely successful people are saying, ‘Oh I felt victimised like an oustider and lost opportunity to a star kid'. Somebody is saying, 'I didn’t attend a party so I didn't get a role.' I don't know at which party there has been transactions for films.”

While responding to him, Rajkummar said even he lost a films to star kids during his days of struggle and he feels it's unfair. He said, “When I came to Mumbai, even I was told that ‘you have to attend parties’. Making contacts is not a problem, but going to a party and saying, ‘Hi I am here to make contact' is. But having said that, I was supposed to do a film, but then suddenly I was not in that film overnight. Somebody who is known and happened to be a star kid got that part."

He further added, "I my mind I think it was not fair. Just because you can control things, you know people, you can make some calls, it is being unfair. That film never got made eventually. That guy was an insider but he could have also been an outsider who is successful and could do the same to you.”

Meanwhile, on the work front, Rajkummar will also be next seen in Amar Kaushik's Stree 2. The movie features Shraddha Kapoor, Apaarshakti Khurrana and Pankaj Tripathi in pivotal roles.
