Dhruva has joined the million dollar club and Rakul Preet is happy. She has three hits in her kitty and the actress talks about the movie, fitness plans and much more.
How will you be ushering the New Year?
Will all that hectic work schedule I really need to party. It is not that I am tired, just that I need some leisure. This New Year I will be with my friends in Goa. I want to just party with my friends.
Tell us about Dhruva and Thani Oruvan?
Thani Oruvan is a good film. After signing for Dhruva I did not watch this film. I did not want to have Nayanatara’s role in my head while acting for this one. Comparisons are bound to be made. I have given my best. There have been some changes in Dhruva.
You look awesome in Pareshanu Raa...
It wasn’t that easy. I did not have a drop of water till the shoot was complete. I had stopped eating the previous night and I wanted my stomach to look flat. When we finished the shoot at 6pm I ate.
How did you feel when this film was offered to you?
It came in as a huge surprise. I have worked with both Ram Charan and Surender Reddy before. So I know their style of working. The comfort level was there.
Why did you not dub for Dhruva?
I would have loved to dub, but there was no time. Off late I have started talking to many in Telugu.
You are in the top slot, how does that feel?
It has been hard work and I have reached here step by step. Nothing happened overnight. I started from small films. I love what I do. I don’t mind glamorous or performance oriented roles. Glamorous roles are not easy to do. Comparatively sometimes deglam roles are easier.
Tell us about your future projects?
I have five films, which are A R Murugadoss and Mahesh Babu movie. Then there is Boyapati Srinu's movie, Sai Dharam Tej's 'Winner', Naga Chaitanya-Kalyan Krishna's movie, and Karthi's movie. In one of these films I play a character as bubbly as Kareena Kapoor in Jab We Met. In one I am an athlete. My dream is to do a romantic film like Aashique.
I love fitness, I read about it whenever possible. I can tell you what food has how many calories. I don’t like the word diet. Eat good food, home made food.
