Buzz is that actress Rakul Preet Singh, who will be playing a doctor in director A.R. Murgadoss’ upcoming film, SPYder, plays a nerdy character in the spy-thriller. Interestingly, the director isn’t quite known for his portrayal of actresses in his films. Except for Akira and Ghajini, rarely have the heroines in his films had anything important to do except to play the love interest of the lead character, dance and look glamourous.
“Rakul’s role too won’t be of key importance in the plot of the film. However, this film could mark a great leap for her as it would mean a large audience in both the Tamil and Telugu lands. Actresses in the director’s films may not win awards, but their career takes a great commercial turn post the release. It will likely be the same scenario for the actress too,” shares a source. Meanwhile, the film’s shoot is nearing completion with just two songs left to be shot in the ongoing final schedule.
