Signature Start Up Masterclass is a unique platform to inspire and enable those who want to follow their passion and make a mark for themselves.
Born and raised in Gurgaon, Rajkummar graduated in Arts from the University of Delhi and later studied method acting from FTII, Pune. After moving to Mumbai for a film career and starring in brief roles in several of the highly successful Hindi films, Rajkummar achieved success for his breakout role with the courtroom drama Shahid and the mainstream potboiler Kai Po Che and never stopped experimenting with his roles. He has been graced with innumerable nominations and awards like Forbes 30 under 30, GQ Man of the year and his movie Newton as India’s official entry to the Oscars.

A method actor in the truest sense, his performances leave the audience with a sense of awe and bated breath for what is to come.
Speaking at the event in Noida, Rajkummar said, “I’m deeply grateful to share the coveted Signature Startup Masterclass Stage. I have always believed that it is our own responsibility to give our heart and soul to anything that we take up, to carve out a truly unique body of work for ourselves. I have gone on to battle it out and stood my ground when I had to. It was that passion for achieving something that led me to success eventually. After this event, I hope I inspire the audience to chart out a plan and endure all hardships to achieve what they truly want.”
The event witnessed a high turnout who were inspired by Rajkummar Rao and entertained by the amazing Vernon Noronha who enthralled the audience with songs from his latest album.
