A prominent face in the South, Rakul Preet Singh is Bollywood-bound once again with De De Pyaar De. Quiz her on her infrequent appearances in Hindi films, and she attributes it to destiny rather than design. “I had signed my first Telugu film before Yaariyan  happened.
When that turned out to be a hit, I got many big projects down South. I thought I will do Hindi films whenever something good comes my way. I don’t have a godfather offering work to me, so there has always been a struggle [to get projects]. But the fact that you do not get it easy makes you respect your work more. I want to have great films to my credit, irrespective of which language they are in.”
