During an appearance on TLC's "Midnight Misadventures with Mallika Dua", Rajkummar said he is a fun-loving person. 

"Mostly audience have seen me portraying serious roles in most of my movies and that`s why everyone thinks that I am like my characters too in real life. But in reality I am a fun loving person when I am around my bunch of people - friends and family," he said.
