Rakul Preet looks forward to a busy year
Actress Rakul Preet is excited about Milap Zaveri's MARJAAVAAN, and says it is a very performance-oriented role but with a commercial touch.
The actress is also looking forward to the release of DE DE PYAAR DE as she feels the movies will help her find her base in the Hindi film industry.
"MARJAAVAAN comes out this year. We are shooting for it at the moment. What is exciting for me is that both the roles in MARJAAVAAN and DE DE PYAAR DE are very different from each other. I can't reveal much about MARJAAVAAN," Rakul told IANS.
"But I can tell that both are very performance-oriented. From my look to the way I walk or my dialogues, MARJAAVAAN is absolutely different," she added.
It also stars Sidharth Malhotra, Riteish Deshmukh and Tara Sutaria. The other details of the film are still under wraps.
Giving a glimpse into the universe of MARJAAVAAN, Rakul said: "More than the fact that I haven't done anything like this, I don't think Hindi cinema has seen a role like this. Milap is known for giving heavy dialogues."
"I remember when I signed the film he told me that 'this is the first time my heroine has such heavy dialogues'. I have that 1990s touch with all the grace and a lot of commercial mass dialogues -- which I am enjoying a lot while shooting. I hope people also like it."
She is having fun shooting with her AIYAARY co-star Sidharth.
"It is really nice when you have a certain comfort level with your co-star and when you know them well. And that good equation really helps in our performance," she said.
Rakul says 2019 is a very exciting year for her.
"2018 was a year when I shot for five films. DE DE PYAAR DE which took a major chunk. There was a lot of prep which went into the film. And then I signed MARJAAVAAN, shot for the NTR biopic. It is a special appearance. Then I shot for three films in Tamil."
The actress says her work will come out in front of people this year.
"Especially in Hindi where people haven't really seen me do much commercially, or seen me in a performance-oriented role. So, I am very kicked about DE DE PYAAR DE be it the songs or the character."
DE DE PYAAR DE is a romantic comedy co-produced by Luv Ranjan and directed by Akiv Ali.
