Rajat Barmecha, who is well known for his role in his 2010 movie Udaan, told news agency IANS that he doesn't wish to play a sidekick to well-known actors in movies. The 27-year-old actor said: "I am very choosy when it comes to picking up new projects. I don't wish to do films just for the sake of money. After Udaan, I was offered a few films, but I can't play sidekicks to big stars in films. I don't want to play supportive roles." Udaan, which was directed by Vikramaditya Motwane and co-produced by Sanjay Singh, Anurag Kashyap and Ronnie Screwvala, was Rajat Barmecha's debut film.
Rajat Barmecha told IANS: "I have always done films where I had full faith in the script and felt satisfied by it." He further added that he is open to work in any medium. "I am ready to do TV shows also, but it has to be a finite series. I have done a web-series Girl in the City for Bindass in the past. So, medium doesn't matter to me," said Rajat.
Rajat Barmecha will be seen reprising his role as Karik in the web-series Girl in the City season two. Mithila Palkar plays the lead role in the show.
"We received positive reviews for the first season. Also, I had trust in the director of the series. That's why I decided to appear in second season also," Rajat told IANS.
Girl in the City will go on air from March 10.
Rajat Barmecha was nominated for a Screen Award for Most Promising Newcomer- Male for his role in Udaan. The actor also made a cameo appearance in the 2011 movie Shaitan, which featured Rajeev Khandelwal and Kalki Koechlin in the lead roles. Rajat also featured in a short film titled The Finish Line, which won a National Award.
