Many love Randeep Hooda for his raw unadulterated sex appeal, some love him for his killer style and many more love him for his love for horses! But as for me, I love the man for his unconventional journey in the showbiz combined with his impeccable acting skills.
However, it wouldn’t be wrong to say that the actor has even till date, not been given his fair due despite some mesmerizing performances in films like Highway, Sarabjit, Bombay Talkies & Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster.
The actor, who made his debut with Monsoon Wedding, has however not been able to reach the space where his unconventional choices have gotten him the due credit. Though there seems to be no flaw with the actor’s looks or acting skills, it may not be wrong to attribute his very trait of choosing unconventional films as the reason that’s keeping him from reaching the stardom he well deserves.
However, Hooda is one of the few actors who have no qualms about accepting the fact that he is an underrated actor. So much so that in one of his interviews, the actor has been quoted saying, ”I think it would be pompous to say I am an underrated actor. I don’t think it is for me to think and decide, it is for people to decide. But I am glad I am underrated than being overrated – that is something I would find hard to digest. But this is something that is good.”
While most actors today strive the extra mile to achieve a body that women would swoon over, what makes me fall in love all over again with the Haryanvi actor is that Hooda is the least bit not fazed about his sex appeal and the impact that he has on his female fans.
Wanting to rather be known for his mantle as an actor than for his looks; the D-Day actor had once said, ”I would like to be known as one of the best actors in the world because that is something that I would have earned. And being sexiest would come from my genes… It is something I was born with and not earned it for myself.”
While we have no complaints about the film choices of Randeep, it would be interesting to see the actor in a mainstream big-budget Bollywood film. This also might help the hunk resurrect his career, and gain the credit and appreciation of the masses that he deserves.
Here’s wishing the actor a very Happy birthday and lots of love!
