Rajkummar Rao has given some fantastic performances off-late. With Oscar nominated Newton still running in theatres, the actor was funny and adorable in Bareilly Ki Barfi, unrecognisable in Raabta. But there was one performance that will forever haunt viewers – Trapped. Stuck in his apartment and no help at hand, Rao gives a spine-chilling performance of his career.
