The guy-next-door


Rajiv Khandelwal

Khandelwal, who made a mark in television with the superhit soap, surprised audiences when he chose to make his Bollywood debut with Aamir, an off-beat, small budget film.
“I am an ordinary guy and there is nothing starry about me. I am very comfortable with my image and even in my next film, I play a guy-next-door,” Rajiv says.

The actor's performance as a modern Muslim man, who after returning to India, finds himself the target of religious extremists, won over the critics. “I was very comfortable doing the film because both me and my director were debutantes. I don't want to do anything different but just follow my heart and instincts. I would love to be part of a comedy, action or a romantic film but the project has to excite me as it did in an intense thriller like Aamir,” feels Rajiv. 

The actor will be next seen in the film Peter Gaya Kaam Se, a romantic thriller where he will star opposite former VJ turned actor Lekha Washington. “I play a bike taxi pilot, who takes people for a ride and then one day a beautiful girl comes and sits on his bike, and his life takes a turn,” he said.
