Rakul Preet Singh: Want to do credible work

Mumbai – Rakul Preet, who kick-started her Bollywood career with Yaariyaan in 2014, is ready to be seen in another Bollywood flick De De Pyaar De, alongside senior actors Ajay Devgn and Tabu.

In the movie, the 28-year-old actress will be essaying the role of a younger girlfriend of a married older man, played by the 50-year-old Ajay. Talking about her times on the sets and working alongside Ajay, she says, “We all are professionals. It is very robotic on film sets, one moment you are laughing, crying, romancing, and action. It is all structured in our head. As professionals, it is the emotion that you give as per the demand of the script. Ajay sir never made me feel like I was new and that he is a seasoned actor. Everyone was welcoming. If I was nervous it would show onscreen and people are talking about the chemistry.”

De De Pyaar De was also embroiled in a controversy for casting Alok Nath who was accused in the Me Too movement. Reacting to it, Rakul reiterates what the actors and the makers have already said. “It was shot much before. People have already given their clarification and I would not like to comment on it. The makers and Ajay sir have already commented on it, ” she says.

While the actress started out her Bollywood journey in 2014, she has only starred in three Bollywood movies so far.

The big-eyed beauty has made herself quite a star in down South. But the actress claims that it’s not a conscious decision. “When I did Yaariyan, I was very new; I was not aware of the film industry, and I was very young. I had a Telugu film that released two months before Yaariyan and it turned out to be a huge hit. I had big film offers there, so I decided to do that. It was not a conscious break,” she reveals.
