Post the success of De De Pyar De, Rakul Preet Singh has been on signing spree. Apart from projects in which she’s starring opposite Bollywood actors Arjun Kapoor and John Abraham, she has also bagged a couple of new projects.

We ask her what she’s doing differently in Bollywood to be bagging all the happening projects. “I am just fortunate to be getting such interesting roles, and I am continuing with my hard work. I put the same efforts for all the films, but the results are not in our hand,” she reveals, adding that De De Pyar De chose her and that it was not the other way around.

However, we did notice that the actress seems to be signing lesser Telugu films than she used to. But Rakul has a quick comeback, saying, “Naturally! When you are working on three Hindi and Tamil projects, it becomes challenging to strike a deal that balances multiple industries at once. However, I have signed two Telugu projects this year and shall announce a couple of films soon.”

The Manmadhudu 2 star also ascribes her success to Tollywood, saying, “I am always indebted to Tollywood because Telugu is the industry in which I learnt the ropes of showbiz, understanding the script and the craft.”
