Actress Payal Rajput has had only one success her debut film RX100, but even that had released a couple of years ago.
Though Payal acted in a few films after that, she has not been able to pull that kind of coup again. In fact, most of those films actually went bust at the box-office.
Despite appearing in a blockbuster such as the 2019-multi-starrer Venky Mama, opposite Venkatesh, she has still not been able to make herself visible enough for other good projects.
However, we hear Payal has been blaming Venky Mama’s director Bobby (K.S. Ravindra) for casting her wrongly, in an older character. Payal, who plays a teacher in the film, looks older to Raashi Khanna in the film.
A source close to the actress tells us that the actress has been telling her close friends that director Bobby made her look like an aunty in the film, which is why, she reasons, she has not yet been approached by other filmmakers for any good roles opposite young actors.
As per the source, Payal had compared her role in Venky Mama with that of actress Tamannaah in F2, in which the latter was paired opposite Venkatesh. As Tamannaah’s was a glamorous role in that film, Payal assumed that the director would cast her likewise in this one too.
This was why, we are also told, Payal had accepted the role. “However, the result was completely unlike the other,” adds the course. “And this is why Payal thinks she is not getting chances opposite young actors.” But to undo the damage done as of now, the actress, says the source, has now hired a PR team to promote her differently....
