As we all know that Rakul Preet Singh is going to essay the role of Bollywood legendary actress Sridevi in south superstar NTR’s Biopic.
Rakul Preet Singh to Play as Sridevi in NTR’s Biopic
If one could define Rakul Preet’s life, and how things have changed for her over the years, then it boils down to one word – work. With multiple projects lined up in Telugu, Tamil and Hindi, it looks as if she cannot afford to take a day off. The only break she managed to take in the past few months was a weekend in Goa and that too because the shoot of one of her films got postponed. And yet, she often makes headlines for not signing enough films, especially in Telugu.
The actress has three films lined up in Tamil, including Suriya’s NGK, Karthi-starrer Dev and an untitled sci-fi film with Sivakarthikeyan. “I’m playing an astronomer in Sivakarthikeyan’s film,” the actress reveals, rather gleefully. “NGK has a political angle to it and on the other hand, Dev has me playing an NRI, who’s a millionaire. It’s a romantic drama about people with different ideologies in life. While Karthi’s characterisation is that of a guy who is quite adventurous, I’m playing someone whose work is her life and she has no time for herself. It’s an interesting character study of two people who are poles apart. Having worked with Karthi in Theeran Adhigaaram Ondru, we shared a great rapport while working on the sets of Dev too. We hit it off really well right from the beginning.”
Meanwhile, in Telugu, she is going to team up with Naga Chaitanya soon for a multi-starrer which also has Venkatesh in a lead role, but at the moment, all eyes are on the NTR biopic, titled as Kathanayakudu, in which she has essayed the role of Sridevi. The film has Balakrishna playing NT Rama Rao and Krish as the director. “It’s the first time someone is playing Sridevi onscreen. I’m both nervous and excited about it. I know that I’m putting myself out there for a lot of criticism if I don’t do a good job. When I was offered the role, I kept asking myself if I can pull it off, but I’m glad that Krish had that faith in me. It’s a big deal for me and I hope I can do justice to the character,” Rakul signs off.
