WHY RAKUL PREET ADMIRES AJAY DEVGN
Having enjoyed films of actors Ajay Devgn and Tabu while growing up, Rakul Preet Singh confesses to have had the secret desire to work with them one day. However, the actor never imagined that the opportunity would come her way within four years of making her Bollywood debut. Rakul, who is currently shooting for a romantic comedy starring Ajay and Tabu, says that ever since the film came her way, she has been over the moon.
“He (Ajay Devgn) is so grounded. I didn’t feel like I am working with a star. I admire the way he manages his personal and professional life; he’s sorted that way. He makes sure he finishes his work and has time for his kids. He takes breaks, goes on vacations,” says Rakul, whose last Hindi film was Aiyaary.
On the experience of working with the stars, she says, “Both Ajay sir and Tabu ma’am are among the finest actors we have in the industry. Working with them is nothing short of a learning experience. We have a long schedule to go, so, I am totally looking forward to the same.”
However, Rakul remains tight-lipped about her character in the upcoming film, which is being produced by Luv Ranjan. She says, “It’s too early to talk about my role. I can only say that it’s an interesting and meaty role. I’ve never played such a character before. It has many layers to it. I had actually lost about nine kilos to fit my part. [Keeping in mind] the kind of films Luv Ranjan makes, I was sure this film would be an interesting experience. And since I’ve started shooting for it, I know I was right .”
