Rajkummar Rao, who turns 37 on Tuesday, once revealed that while he was in the 11th grade, he dated a girl who already had a boyfriend. As a result, the actor said that he was beaten up by 25 individuals.

Rajkummar Rao has always wanted to be an actor. He not only worked hard to realize his dream but he is now regarded as one of the best performers in the country.

The actor was up to his fair share of mischief in school before achieving success. Here’s a peek at one such occurrence as he approaches his 37th birthday.

When he appeared on an episode of EIC vs Bollywood, the actor admitted that he was a goon in his youth. He left that phase of his life behind when he reached class 11 and decided that he wanted to be an actor.

That year, Rajkummar was reminded of Kuch Kuch Hota Hai when he saw a girl playing basketball and thought he had discovered his ‘Anjali.’ She was already with her Aman, which was unfortunate for him.

“I moved to this new, really modern, fancy, Blue Bells school in Gurgaon and I was a big, I’m still a big fan of Shah Rukh Khan. So I saw Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and I saw this one girl, playing basketball, same hair, and I was like ‘Anjali’. I was like, ‘I found her mother, I found her (imitating Shah Rukh).’ And then somehow, we started dating but she had a boyfriend,” he said.

“It was a Jat boy and then, of course, they came to thrash me. Some 25 Jat boys from law college and by that time, I was a saint guy. I was like ‘Now no more fighting, this is enough. I have to be an actor.’ They were thrashing me, 25 boys were like, ‘Take out the gun, take out the gun, shoot him, take out the gun.”

I was sitting like (makes a gesture of being huddled up). My two Punjabi, cute friends were like ‘Don’t hit him, hit me if you want to’. The only thing I was screaming is, and trust me, it’s a true story, ‘Don’t hit my face, I want to be an actor,'” he added.
