The critically-acclaimed film, which released on July 16, 2010, was Motwane’s directorial debut. As well as the first Bollywood gig for Barmecha, well the film completes 13 years today. 

When asked about how does it feel that his first blockbuster completes 13 years today, Rajat shared,


“It always feels very special, every year. Udaan has been a very special film for a lot of people and it definitely will be the most special for Vikram (Motwane) and I. We both started our journeys together with this film and learnt so much on the way. Generally even for a classic people celebrate their 10 years or 15 years anniversary but Udaan is so close to my heart and the heart of so many people out there. It made so many people go out and actually pursue their dreams and It continues to do so even today and that’s the reason we celebrate every single year of it’s existence. It’s a film that I personally am very grateful for and I celebrate Udaan everyday of my life. I can’t be more blessed to have started my acting journey with a film like Udaan”.

He further opened up on what made him say yes to the project. Rajat shared,

“I doubt there will be any actor who will read the script of Udaan and wouldn’t want to do it. It was my love at first read! Also, being my first film, at that point in my career I wasn’t choosing scripts. Udaan chose me. I auditioned for it like any other boy who comes to Bombay in the hope of getting a film, I wasn’t thinking how or with what kind of a film I wanted to start my career. I just wanted to act. And that’s the reason I am extremely grateful that a film like Udaan came my way at the start of my career. There is no film in the world that could have been a better debut for me than Udaan. It’s a very very important film and every single memory of every single minute spent on that film will be cherished forever. I will never forget Udaan and the people who made it possible. They all hold a very special place in my heart!”

On the professional front, Rajat was recently seen in Kacchey Limbu, opposite Radhika Madan. The film was produced by Jio Studios.
