Raj Kummar's Ramleela connect!

Mumbai, Oct. 17 -- After sharing screen space with Manoj Bajpayee in Aligarh, actor Raj Kummar Rao will be seen alongside Kriti Sanon and Ayushmann Khurrana in his upcoming film, Bareilly Ki Barfi.

The movie is being currently shot in Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh. Raj Kummar left for the city two weeks ago, and will be there for a few days to wrap up the schedule.

A source reveals that while in Lucknow, the actor took some time out to attend a local Ramleela play on Dussehra (October 11).

"Since Raj Kummar hails from a theatre background, he has always been fascinated with plays and loves watching them. Ramleela being one of the oldest and traditional acts, the actor was excited to watch it," says the source.

When contacted, the actor confirmed the news and said, "I went there in disguise. I wanted to be amidst the local people, listen to their conversations, and feel the vibe of the place."

Raj Kummar spent almost an hour at the Ramleela ground, but the moment people started recognising him, he had to leave the venue, as he didn't want to disturb the show.

"The experience was nostalgic for me. When I used to stay in Gurgaon, Haryana, all the kids in my house would go for Ramleela with my grandmother. Also, my first stage performance was in a Ramleela, when I was in the first standard," added the 32-year old.
