"each character is different and contrasting.”
Rakul Preet Singh has expressed her gratitude for how Bollywood’s experimentation has allowed her to explore different roles.
The actress made her Bollywood debut in 2014 with Yaariyan.
She has also featured in Aiyaary and De De Pyaar De.
Now, Singh has said that she is grateful for the experimentation in Bollywood film writing.
Because of this, she and actors like herself have the opportunity to choose varied and contrasting roles.
Speaking to PTI, Rakul Preet Singh expressed her appreciation for Bollywood’s diversity.
She said: “I think it’s a great time where people are writing different kinds of scripts, that possibly the audiences are looking to watch.
“The experimentation that’s happening is different and that leads us to get that opportunity to be able to choose those different roles.
“I am very grateful that I have an opportunity to be able to choose these different kinds of roles.
“And each character is different and contrasting.”
Rakul Preet Singh has an interesting selection of projects in the pipeline, including comedy-drama Doctor G and Mayday.
She is also currently starring in Sardar Ka Grandson alongside Arjun Kapoor and Neena Gupta, which released on Netflix on May 18, 2021.
Singh also spoke about her process of choosing projects, saying that she always follows her instincts.
She said: “I don’t think much as an actor. I just go by my instincts.
“I feel great that I am getting to do what I want to do. I think about one day at a time.
“I feel very grateful that I have these films and I am looking forward to having more work.”
Rakul Preet Singh is also due to take on possibly her most contrasting role yet.
In an upcoming project that is yet to be titled, Singh will take on the role of a condom tester.
Explaining the film’s topic, director Tejas Deoskar said:
“Our film is a social family entertainer, which aims at destigmatising the use of condoms.”
According to Deoskar, Rakul Preet Singh was “thrilled” when they approached her to star in the film.
The director also said that Singh was their first choice for the role, saying:
“For this one, I always believed Rakul was the best suited for the character.
“She brings freshness to every role that she portrays and with a sensitive, thought-provoking subject like this, she was our first choice.”
