Having enjoyed films of actors Ajay Devgn and Tabu, Rakul Preet Singh confesses to have had the secret desire to work with them one day. However, she never imagined that the opportunity would come her way in just 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. While working with him, I didn’t, even for once, 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, who marked her entry in Bollywood with Yaariyan (2014) and her last Hindi film was the Sidharth Malhotra-starrer Aiyaary.
Elucidating further on the experience of with the actors, she adds, “Both Ajay sir and Tabu ma’am are among the finest actors we have in the industry. I have watched their films while growing up. So, working with them is nothing short of a learning experience and I don’t want to miss out on that opportunity. We have a long schedule to go, so, I am totally looking forward to the same,” adds Rakul, who has several Tamil, Telugu, and Kannada films under her belt.
All praises for her co-stars, Rakul remains tight-lipped about her character in the upcoming film, which is being produced by Luv Ranjan. Not divulging much, she says, “It’s too early to talk about my role in the film. I can only say that it’s an interesting and meaty role. I have never played such a character before. It has many layers to it. I had actually lost about nine kilos to fit my part. Also, [keeping in mind] the kind of films Luv Ranjan makes, I was sure this film would be an interesting experience. And since I have started shooting for it, I know I was right ”
