Rakul Preet Singh says far from being apprehensive, she had fun riding a cycle rickshaw.

For Rakul Preet Singh riding a cycle rickshaw for the first time for her upcoming Tamil film Dheeran Adhigaaram Ondru was a fun affair. Although she has never attempted to ride a cycle rickshaw in the past she was not hesitant at all when she was asked to ride one for a song sequence for the film. A source on the set said, “The dance master’s assistant could not ride it as the rickshaw was heavy and difficult to paddle, hence the production team was a little hesitant at first when they asked Rakul to ride a cycle rickshaw. However, Rakul was very confident that she could ride it. She rode it really well.”

Speaking about the experience Rakul said in a statement, “The rickshaw driver was really nervous about me riding his rickshaw. He came to me at least five times to show me where the break was as it was not a regular break. He just wanted to be sure that I don’t ram into something. It was a fun experience. I not only enjoyed peddling the cycle rickshaw around with Karthi and rickshaw driver sitting at the back but also had great work out on set.”

Paired with Karthi in the film, the film marks Rakul’s return to Tamil filmdom after a hiatus. This year, she will also be seen in Mahesh Babu’s Tamil-Telugu bilingual spy thriller Spyder. Going by the industry grapevine, Rakul might team up with Suriya for his upcoming yet-untitled Tamil outing with filmmaker Selvaraghavan.
