Rakul Preet Singh, who was last seen in Divya Khosla Kumar-directed Hindi film Yaariyan, is reportedly working on three untitled films down South. She is to be paired opposite big names like Nitin, Gopichand and Manoj. However, this is not her first venture in the South industry and she has to her credit, a few Kannada, Tamil and Telugu films as she began her acting career in 2009.
“I am glad to have been paired with stars like Gopichand and Nitin as it will be a very good experience for me. Although we haven’t started shooting yet, but during the dialogue sessions, we gelled well,” said the actor.
After getting critical appreciation from the industry for her debut film, the 2009- Kannada venture titled Gilli, which was a remake of the 2004 Tamil film 7G Rainbow Colony, Rakul was open to more South films.
Coming back to her new films, she says, each role in the three untitled films, is a complete contrast from the other. While she acts as an over smart girl in the film opposite Gopichand, she plays a shy girl opposite Nitin. Rakul, who has also signed a Hindi movie, adds that language is not a barrier for her as she loves her work. “I want to do good work, irrespective of the languages,” says the actor.
