His role as a teenage rebel in Udaan won him multiple awards and now Rajat Barmecha will be seen in a negative role in Anurag Kashyap's production venture Shaitan.
'I have done a cameo in Anurag's next film Shaitan. The role is much different from my role in Udaan. In Shaitan I am playing a negative character. It's of two-three minutes long, but I loved doing it,' said Rajat told IANS.
Directed by Beejoy Nambiar, Shaitan is about a group of Mumbai youngsters with actors Kalki Koechlin, Nikhil Chinappa, Sheetal Menon and Rajit Kapoor playing the lead roles.
The unprecedented success of Udaan, which was co-produced by Kashyap, has made Rajat extremely choosy about his next film as he doesn't want to disappoint his fans.
'I am doing lots of commercials. There are a couple of (film) offers, which I liked. Let's see if they work out. Udaan was such a good film and people appreciated my work so much that I want my second film if not better, it should be equally good,' said Rajat, 22.
