Rajeev Khandelwal became a part of most families when he charmed them in his telly soaps, Kahin To Hoga, Kya Hadsa Kya Haqeeqat and Left Right Left. But now, it seems like he's ready for a career shift.
The actor will make his movie debut in Aamir, directed by newcomer Rajkumar Gupta (who assisted Anurag Kashyap in No Smoking).
Rajeev tells Patcy N more about his film, and his future plans.
