A few days ago it was reported that Rakul Preet had been offered a pivotal role in actor Nani’s next big film. And, as expected, this created quite a buzz amongst fans. Now, it seems that actress Kajal Aggarwal may have helped Rakul bag the offer. According to a leading daily, the role was originally offered to her but she could not take it up courtesy her packed schedule. However, the ‘Yevadu’ star asked the makers to approach Rakul for the same role. Talking about this, a source said that Kajal convinced the team that the ‘Kick 2’ actress would be the perfect choice for the film.
“The role was initially offered to Kajal, who’s had a great bond with Nani, and has recently worked with him in ‘Awe’. While she refused to be a part of the film because of other commitments, she recommended Rakul’s name for the project and even convinced the team that she’d be perfect for the role. The former okayed the film soon after,” added the source.
Interestingly, Rakul has been trying to reinvent herself these days and this was Kajal’s way of helping her friend. Sweet!
On a related note, Rakul is currently awaiting the release of her Hindi film ‘Aiyaary’ which hits screens in February. In it, she will be seen alongside Sidharth Malhotra and Manoj Bajpayee. Talking about the film, she had once said that she agreed to it because it’s a Neeraj Pandey directorial.
As far as Kajal is concerned, she currently has ‘MLA’ and ‘AWE’ in her kitty. ‘MLA’ has been directed by newcomer Upendra an also features Kalyan Ram in the lead. On the other hand, ‘AWE’ has been produced by Nani and is a Prashanth Varma directorial. In it, she will be seen alongside Nithya Menen and Regina Cassandra.
