Rakul Preet Singh

Rakul Preet Singh, a prominent figure in Bollywood, has had a notable year with the success of her Tamil film 'Ayalaan' and her wedding to long-time partner Jackky Bhagnani in February.

Despite her ties to the industry through her marriage to a producer, Rakul recently opened up about her lack of industry connections to support her career. In a candid interview with Zoom, she discussed the challenges faced by outsiders in the industry.

Acknowledging the hurdles for first-generation artists, Rakul emphasized the importance of perseverance. She recognized that even those from industry families had to navigate challenges, drawing on their parents' experiences.

Unlike some, Rakul confessed to not having influential industry connections to fall back on if a film flops. Instead, she takes charge of her career, actively seeking out opportunities by reaching out to directors and filmmakers herself.

In her words, "I've to market myself; I'm a product that should be signed up for a film." She doesn't rely on others to promote her career but proactively communicates with industry professionals.

Rakul attributed her success to her strong work ethic, which has led to repeated collaborations with directors and filmmakers. She described herself as a workaholic, constantly pushing her team to seek out new opportunities.

Rather than lamenting the lack of support, Rakul advocates for proactive problem-solving. She believes in finding solutions and navigating challenges rather than dwelling on them.

On the professional front, Rakul Preet will next appear in 'De De Pyaar De 2', alongside Ajay Devgn and Tabu, showcasing her continued commitment to her craft.
