It’s difficult for outsiders to get good roles: Rakul

Actress Rakul Preet says it is extremely tough for an outsider to get meaningful roles in the film industry.

But she is glad that she is getting a chance to explore her calibre with films like “De De Pyaar De”.

“I said ‘yes’ to the film because of my role. Let’s face the fact, it is very difficult for an outsider to kind of crack the film which has a great role for the girl and when you are an integral part of the story,” Rakul told IANS.

“When I heard the role, I was completely blown by it. I said ‘I will do anything to get this role’. I am extremely grateful that I am getting such a good response and people are noticing me in the trailer when it has two stalwart actors. I was overwhelmed with the response,” she added.

The film, a romantic comedy, also stars Tabu and Ajay Devgn. Written and co-produced by Luv Ranjan and directed by Akiv Ali, it tells a story of how a 50-year-old falls for a girl much younger than him, and what happens when she meets his former wife.

In the film, Rakul will be seen essaying the role of a girl from London.

On her look, the actress said: “My look is very different. When I got the film, Luv Sir asked me that to lose weight. The brief given to me was, ‘You need to look like Deepika Padukone from ‘Cocktail’.

“Considering I own a gym myself, I couldn’t say no. I had 25 days before I started the film and I lost about 8-10 kg at that point of time. It was a lot of work in terms of getting the look right.”

She continued: “I was training for four hours and there was a proper regime. I had to crash diet for a week and then build muscle. It was one month of intense training. It was probably the most hardworking month of my life in terms of fitness.”

“De De Pyaar De”, produced by T-Series and Luv Films, will release on May 17. Rakul hopes the “film creates the same excitement as the trailer”.

Actress Rakul Preet Singh, who will share screen space with actor Sidharth Malhotra once again, says it’s fun to work him.

The two will feature in the upcoming film “Marjaavaan”. They had earlier worked together in the 2018 action-thriller film “Aiyaary”.

“It is fun to work with someone you know you get along well with. Sidharth and I hit it off well during ‘Aiyaary’ because he is from Delhi and so am I. He is a very grounded, nice boy and fun to work with. I think that equation definitely shows on screen,” Rakul told IANS.

Directed by Milap Zaveri, “Marjaavaan” is an action-thriller. It also stars Riteish Deshmukh in a pivotal role.

Rakul describes her role as “very different”.

“Milap loves giving ‘bhaari bharkam’ (hard-hitting) dialogues and when I signed this film, he said my heroes have always had big dialogues. This is the first time my heroine also has,” she said.

The 28-year-old actress also has Luv Ranjan’s upcoming movie “De De Pyaar De”, starring Ajay Devgn and Tabu.

“People in the same year will see me in two absolutely contrasting roles in Hindi which I am really looking forward to,” she added.

Rakul Preet Singh Charges Extra for Nag

Even as Rakul Preet Singh is struggling to bag offers in Tollywood, she is getting good money for the films that she’s signing.

She missed the chance to pair up with Venkatesh in ‘Venky Mama’ but she has now more reason to celebrate as she bagged to act as romantic leading lady in senior actor Nagarjuna’s “Manmadhudu 2”. The highlight of this project is that she will receive more remuneration.

She will be paid whopping Rs 1.5 Cr for this movie since she’s acting opposite senior star.

Not many heroines are showing interest to pair up with senior actors like Venkatesh, Nagarjuna and Balakrishna. So, producers are shelling out extra money to convince the actresses like Tamannah and Rakul.

Though Rakul has not many Telugu films in hands, she demanded more money for ‘Manmadhudu 2’. The film will start rolling later this month.

Before signing this film, Rakul was willing to cut down her pay to snatch some offers. Interestingly, she is now getting more money than her regular remuneration.
