Rakul Preet Singh is an extremely busy Bollywood citizen these days as she gears up for the release of her next movie Marjaavaan opposite Siddharth Malhotra. She is busy attending promotional events with just less than a week left for the film’s box office release. In a F2F with TOI, Rakul shared with us her journey in Bollywood & juggling between South & Hindi films. She admitted that the juggling act can get crazy at times. Hence stopping him from taking up 4 South projects a year like she did before. This Yaariyaan actress alleges that Bollywood demands a lot of one’s time & even when you aren’t shooting, actors need to make their presence felt.
She explained in detail how different it is to maneuver Bollywood, unlike the southern film industry where celebrity managers do most of the heavy lifting. These were her words,
“In Bollywood, it’s more about the personal touch you have with people, you reach out yourself for the kind of films you want to be a part of. Also, let me tell you, nobody is going to give you work just because you attended a party. It helps to touch base with everyone, but only good work begets more work. Today, content is what matters and because of that, there is an increasing demand for talent. If you are talented, it might take time, but at the end of the day, you will find your place. Mumbai and Hyderabad are both very welcoming that way. They also appreciate hard-work. If you are hard-working, people are ready to give you a chance”.
