Does Rajkumar Rao try too hard to fit-in in the industry ?

No doubt he is a brilliant actor, he has come a long way since his debut and made his mark in Bollywood industry. Nobody is questioning his excellent acting skills, but does he try too hard to fit- in in the industry ? He comes from no film family, has no godfather in the industry, but the fact is that the industry could be a little harsh on these ‘so called’ outsiders. Looking at his his competitors from the industry are stars like Ranbir Kapoor, Varun Dhawan, Ranvir Singh who started around the same time. He once in an interview said that people take time to notice him in parties and other places. Does he feel out of place and that is why the need of trying too hard ?
