Blame his appealing looks and incredible talent, slightly shy but exceptionally ambitious Raayo S Bakhirta has triumphed upon the hearts of millions with his stint as Vikrant Chaudhary in Pyaar Ka Punchnama. He was praised and loved for his “upar se tough, andar se softy” character in the film. Hailing from Shimla, Raayo S Bakhirta made an impulsive decision of travelling to Mumbai in order to pursue his career in the entertainment industry soon after attending a concert in Delhi.
Raayo says his competition is with himself as he believes actors cannot be compared because there’s something different about each one of them, “I believe each actor is versatile and different so you can’t compare them. I’d prefer comparing my own work from film to film.”
Raayo S Bakhirta stared in films like Ishk Actually, directed by Anish Khanna, written by Arindam Mukherjee, Paranormal film 706, written and directed by Sharavankumar Tiwari and Unknown Caller, directed by Shantanu Anant Tambe may not have been the most commercial films but they certainly gave him a loyal and a niche fan base.
Known for his expressive eyes and controlled acting, he has been a critic favorite. Raayo will soon be seen in films DNA Mein Gandhiji, written and directed by Sandeep Nath; Brunie, directed by Suraj Chitre and Saksham, directed by Shubhanshu Satyadeo. Billed as India’s first dogomance, the film Brunie traces the love story between Brunie and Kalu, two pariah dogs
Talking about his choice of works, Raayo elaborated by saying, “I just want to act in as many different characters as is possible. In the past I have said no to some very important people, because I didn’t understand the ways of this industry. You live, you learn. I choose from what comes my way. I am not here to judge, there is an audience for all kinds of content.”
