Rakul Preet is arguably one of the most talented young stars in the Southern film industry. And, of late, she has been in the news because of her rumoured affair with actor Rana Daggubati. During a recent chat with a leading daily, Rakul spoke about these rumours and said that they are baseless. The diva went on to add that Rana is just a friend and there is nothing more between them.
“We’ve been hearing this for such a long time and (we) can’t help but laugh. This is just a rumour. Rana and I are very good friends. He’s there for me whenever I need him. I stay in Hyderabad, away from family, and there I have a group of 15-20 friends. Rana and I are a part of the group. So, we often hang out together and are neighbours, too. In the group, only two-three (people) are single, and we’re among them. And I think people tend to link those who are single,” she added.
Rakul also made it clear that when she finds love, she will let everyone know and not hide anything.
“In fact, I often tell my friends, ‘Guys, find me someone, what are you doing?’ On a serious note, I want to concentrate on my work. When love happens, I’d prefer to announce it rather than hide it,” she added.
Well, that is quite a clear statement and we hope that it puts all such rumours to rest.
On a related note, this is a busy time for Rakul, At present, she is gearing up for the release of the Neeraj Pandey-directed ‘Airyaary’. It is the second Hindi film of her career and will see her share screen space with Bollywood heartthrob Sidharth Malhotra. Besides ‘Aiyaary’, she also has a film with actor Suriya in her kitty.
