Rajkumar Rao Survived On Biscuits As A Struggling Actor

Actor Rajkummar Rao is a self-confessed foodie just like any other North Indian. Talking about his love for food, he said, “I love Indian food, but I don’t cook. Being in the profession of acting though, I have to keep my greed under control. Since I’m working continuously these days, I have to follow a diet.” He gets to indulge in cheat meals only when his role requires him to do so, a recent example being for the web series – Bose.

Talking about how he survived his struggling acting days, Rao said, “When I came from Gurgaon, my hometown, to Mumbai, I shared a flat with two other boys. The only thing I could cook was noodles. Sometimes, if I had the money to spare, I would order some subzi and chappatis from a nearby restaurant.” At times when he didn’t have enough money, he even survived on water and biscuits.

On another note, Rajkumar Rao was also a part of the “Aaj Se Thoda Kam” FSSAI campaign where he nudged people to reduce their salt, sugar and fat intake.
