An actor that brings freshness on the screen, Rakul Preet is a favourite among directors who want female leads who do more than just look great beside their respective co-stars. While many fail to make their presence count, Rakul has been able to make her roles memorable even when she shared the screen with stars like Mahesh Babu in the recent release Spyder.
As she celebrates her birthday today, here are five things you should know about Rakul:
Rakul might have gained popularity because of her work in the South film industry but did you know that she is a proper sardarni brought up in Delhi. Well, yes. Rakul was born in a Punjabi family in New Delhi. She did her schooling from Army Public School and did her graduation from Jesus and Mary College, University of Delhi.
She might be the perfect Yash Raj girl, flaunting her saree in beautiful locales but in real life she loves sports. In fact, she is a professional golf player too.
Her love for sports and fitness was also evident when she started her own gym line in Hyderabad, which was launched on February 20, 2016.
For many, Rakul made her debut with film Yaariyan in 2014 but that is not true. She made her acting debut with the Kannada film Gilli, which released in 2009.
In 2011, after pariticipating in a beauty pageant, Rakul made her debut in Telugu film industry with Keratam and then in the following year, she appeared in Tamil film Thadaiyara Thaakka.
She started off her journey with Rs 5 lakh for a film and now, she takes Rs 1 crore. Well, that for sure is some growth.
The actor has turned 27 today and we cannot wait to know how she will be celebrating her birthday this year. Meanwhile, she is busy with her second Bollywood project, Aiyaary, also starring Sidharth Malhotra and Manoj Bajpayee.
