Actress Rakul Preet Singh garnered good reviews for her acting performance in the movie Puthagam, which was her debut flick in Tamil cinema industry. The movie did not do well in the Box office, but a meaty role for Rakul Preet Singh in the movie gave her enough opportunity to draw the attention of filmmakers in the Tamil cinema industry.
The actress, if sources are to be believed, has been roped in to romance actor Gautham Karthick in a new flick, which is the official remake of the Telugu movie Ala Modalaindi.
Ala Modalaindi is a super hit Telugu flick starred by actor Nani and actress Nithya Menon in the lead roles. The movie is a romantic comedy, which clicked instantly with audiences and made enough profit in the box office too. The movie is being remade in the Tamil cinema industry, which is set to be directed by director Ravi Thiyagarajan. The filmmakers roped in actor Gautham Karthick to portray the lead role, which was essayed by actor Nani in the Telugu original. It seems as the filmmakers wanted actress Nithya Menon to repeat her beautiful portrayal of female lead role once again in the Tamil remake, but the bubbly actress seems to have rejected the offer, as she did not wish do redundant roles.
The filmmakers, now, have chosen actress Rakul Preet Singh for the female lead role. The sources say that the actress is super excited as this role too is a meaty one and has a lot of scope to give her best performance. It is to be noted that actress Nithya Menon bagged the state award for best performing actress for her acting in Ala Modalaindi.
In addition to this new project, Rakul Preet Singh is also making her debut in Bollywood with the movie called Yaariyan!
