Rajat Kapoor, Movie (Raghu) Romeo

Rajat Kapoor, an alumnus of the Film and Television Institute of India (FTII), also actively involved with theatre, acting and modelling on both TV and film. He was Preity Zinta's maternal uncle in movie "Dil Chahta Hai", this handsome and intelligent looking person has also entered into film making.

Raghu Romeo is his latest venture, which has also entered in to Locrano Film Festival. Raghu Romeo is ...
    ""...about a about a man who takes television too seriously. The 30 year old waiter lives with his widowed mother in a ramshackle lower middle class tenemant. A dancer, Sweety, is in love with Raghu and a gangster Anna is in love with Sweety. One shining light inspires Raghu to coast through his humdrum existence with a semblance of equanimity - the ideal woman Neeta who unfortunately is not a real person but a character in the long running all time hit soap opera, Dard. Reshma, the actress who plays Neeta, is hardly like the character she portrays. What happens when reality collides with fantasy? A madcap adventure that ends with Raghu finally growing up.""- Synopsis at

Raghu is played by Vijay Raaz, an always brilliant actor. You must remember this noticable actor from "Monsoon Wedding", he had played the "Shaadi Ka Contractor".

The most innovative thing about this movie is the arrangement of finanance. When Rajat felt short of few lakhs for this movie, he floated email to his friends to become part producers of this movie and yes, he got support and finance through this. Really, anything is possible if you have passion and determination.

I have not seen the movie, but storyline and the people involved are really exiting. Best of luck to these guys who give us the real different movies.
