Rakul Preeth Singh, one of the top actresses down South, did not have a Telugu film release in 2018. The actress’s last film Spyder released in September 2017 and after that, the actress didn’t sign any Telugu film. The film was a big disappointment for Rakul as it bombed at the box-office. Though she was paired opposite a top star like Mahesh Babu and it was directed by a top director A.R. Murugadoss, the film still was a complete dud.
The actress has signed only one Telugu film, Venky Mama, but the shooting has not yet started. One had hoped that the film would start in December, but Venkatesh is busy promoting his other film F2, which is releasing in a couple of weeks. So, the actress has not shot in a Telugu project, except a cameo in the NTR biopic. She is playing Sridevi and shot only for a few days. Though Rakul stays in Hyderabad as the city is her home now, she has no Telugu release and will have to wait till next summer for her next Telugu film. But she has signed a few Tamil and Hindi films.
