Bollywood actress Rakul Preet Singh’s film ‘Chhatriwali’ got good reviews on the digital platform. If Rakul is to be believed, she now wants to do an out and out love story. She will currently be seen in Indian 2 alongside Kamal Haasan.
During a special conversation with Dainik Bhaskar, Rakul shared the success of Chhatriwali, the experience of working with Kamal Haasan and many interesting things related to her career-
While doing ‘Chhatriwali’, I believed that this film would connect with people. This topic may not be metro city, but it was able to connect a lot with the people of small towns. Certainly, self-confidence increased, as thought happened. Although it is not that now I will only do films based on social awareness, it is very important for me to entertain the film. I would like to do everything- commercial, dance-sing and social awareness based too. Having a good script matters a lot.
On which subject do you want to do a film?
I definitely want to do a love story. I really want to be a part of this genre because I feel romance never dies. Those who have grown up seeing the idea of romance on the big screen, want to be a part of it. To do at least one out and out romantic film.
How was the experience of working with Kamal Haasan?
Yes, the shooting of this film is almost over, only a few songs are left. I feel very lucky that I got a chance to work with him. He is an institution, Kamal sir is a complete industry in himself. He has given his 60 years to this industry and the kind of experience he has, the passion he still has for acting, is amazing.
Even after so much experience, his dedication was amazing even after being a legendary superstar. His prosthetic make-up in the film was excessive. Coming 4 hours early in the morning, then giving the shot at 9 am, then giving 2-3 hours to remove the prosthetic after pack-up, it cannot be without passion. Even after so many years, if he is so passionate, then our journey has just begun. Got to learn a lot from him.
You are doing another film with Arjun Kapoor, how was the experience?
Arjun is a great actor, I can’t talk much on it right now as the film hasn’t been officially announced. Although this is my second film with him. He is a very nice person, it was a lot of fun. I would say that as much as it was fun shooting this film, the audience will enjoy watching it.
