After the success of the latest release Rarandoi Veduka Chudam, Rakul Preet seems to be going through the best phase of her career. Having had a great 2016 with Naanaku Prematho, Sarraoinodu and Dhruva, Rakul Preet is one of the most sought-after actresses currently. Rakul has played a varied range of roles in her career so far but according to the actress Rarandoi Veduka Chudam has a different characterisation which she has never played till date.

In an interview with a news agency, Rakul Preet spoke about her recent release and about her journey so far in South Indian films. “I have played village-based roles, but this one is an out-and-out village belle, which is new to me… I always wanted to do a love story, and this is a very nice and innocent character. The audience will not only see a different Rakul in the film but a different, strong characterization for a heroine too.”

A multi-faceted Rakul feels that enjoying the journey is important rather than worrying about success or failure. She said, “Neither did 2016 make me extra excited nor did the failure of Winner pull me down. Success and failure are not in our hands. If it was, then all the films would be hits. Nobody would make a flop movie. So, I just enjoy the journey and the experience and learn each day.”

Rakul revealed an interesting point about her journey in films which is not known to many. The actress said, “Venkatadri Express which released in 2013 was my proper Telugu debut because after 2011 film Keratam, I took a two-year break. I didn’t know whether I wanted to continue doing films at that time and be an actress. It’s been quite a journey.”

The actress opines that Telugu film industry is one of the best places to be. “There has been an improvement in me because I have been continuously working and also got a grip on the language. I think Telugu film industry is one of the finest places to be working in, and I feel blessed that I got a great experience ever since my first day.”
