Rakul Preet Singh, a name that every Tollywood movie buff is familiar with and loves to the core. Starting her career at the age of 18, she went on to make her movie debut with the Kannada film Gilli, which is the remake of the critically acclaimed film 7G Rainbow Colony.
This was followed by being noticed nationally with the Femina Miss India Pagent, where she was placed fifth and honored with numerous titles like Pantaloons Femina Miss Fresh Face, Femina Miss Talented, Femina Miss Beautiful Smile, and Femina Miss Beautiful Eyes.
Her Telugu debut happened in 2011 with the film Keratam starring opposite Siddharth Rajkumar. She never had to look back post that. And with every film, she just grew closer to the Telugu audience by her flawless portrayal of the girl next door. Here are a list of 5 times Rakul stole our hearts as the girl next door.
Prarthana – Venkatadri Express
The middle-class college girl who misses her train and is forced to travel with a stranger all night long to reach her destination, face various challenges on the way, Rakul was beyond perfect. Essaying the role flawlessly, her fights with the hero, her smile, and her conversations with everyone in the wedding they go to, was something that reminded us of a girl we all know in real life.
Chandrakala “Chandu” – Loukyam
From being the bully in college to the damsel in distress, Rakul as Chandrakala aka Chandu wooed everyone in the audience effortlessly. Didn’t she woo you too, as she tried to avoid Venky (Gopichand)’s advances? 😉
Ishika – Dhruva
The chirpy, lively, and bubbling with energy girl in the IPS training camp, Ishika is similar to every other college girl head over heels in love with someone. The way she tries time and again to impress her crush is something that made us all think of her as one among us.
Bhrahmaramba -Rarandoi Veduka Chudham
A list on Rakul Preet Singh’s performances as the girl next door would be incomplete without a mention of this film. Dazzling on the screen in bright colored half-sarees and giving the protagonist a difficult time trying to woo her, Rakul is all of us in marriageable age, who is not ready to take the big plunge unless we meet our prince charming.
Charlie/Shalini – Spyder
The modern-day girl of the 21st century, who spends her time studying and aspiring to make it big in the world during the day, and spends her nights exploring newer ways to pleasure herself and share it with her bestie, none other than Rakul could have pulled off the role of Charlie, better than she did.
