Rakul Preet Singh is the new star on the horizon. She has taken the big leap with Ram Charan’s Bruce Lee which is set for a mammoth release next week. On this occasion, we caught up with her for a detailed interview. Let’s see what she has to say.
How important is Bruce Lee for your career ?
I feel that I have entered the big league with this film and the success of Bruce Lee will be a huge turning point in my career.
What are your memorable moments shooting for this film ?
Bruce Lee was a life time experience. I got to work with a star hero like Charan and also shared screen space with the legendary megastar Chiranjeevi.
How was the whole experience working with Chiranjeevi ?
It’s a memorable experience. I cannot forget the day when Chiranjeevi sir was on sets. He was on time with make up and arrived before all of us. I learned a lot from him and cannot forget the compliments he showered on me.
Can you elaborate what he said ?
After watching the Le Chalo song, Chiru sir said that I looked gorgeous and he liked the confidence in my performance. His compliments were like a dream and I did not want to come out of it.
How was it working with Charan ?
Even though he comes from such a big family, he is very grounded and jovial. He dances like a dream and I found it very hard to match steps with him. Our chemistry looks rocking and will impress everyone.
Tell us about your character in the film ?
I play a video game developer called Riya and did a lot of comedy through my character. A lot of hard work went into styling my look and credit should be given to Sreenu Vaitla for showcasing me in such a glamorous way.
How does it feel to be the number one actress in Tollywood ?
I don’t believe in the number game and am doing films which are coming my way. A lot of hard work is involved and I am blessed to do some big budgets flicks in such an early age of my career.
You are very tall. Is your height becoming a problem with the heroes ?
No ! not at all. Everyone is quite confident about their personalities and how we are presented on screen is more important.
How was the experience of meeting Shahrukh Khan on sets ?
That was a huge surprise for all us. We were canning a song and suddenly everyone left the sets and started running out. Later, we found out that SRK had dropped by. We had a detailed conversation with him and SRK also saw some of the portions of the song being shot.
Do you feel sad about missing out on Mahesh’s film ?
Obviously ! I feel disappointed but there is a bright future ahead and if things work out, we will surely do a film together.
Reports reveal that you have hiked you remuneration drastically ?
I feel that I am getting popular with every film and there is nothing wrong in hiking your fees when you are in demand.
What are your future projects ?
As of now, I have NTR’s Nannaku Prematho and Allu Arjun’s Sarainodu.
Finally, sum up Bruce Lee for us ?
Bruce Lee is an action entertainer with trademark Sreenu Vaitla aspects. Charan will be the highlight of the film along with the brother sister sentiment.
