Rakul Preet is undoubtedly one of the most wanted heroines in the Telugu film industry after her films with top heroes have turned out to be big box successes.
She had paired up with Mahesh Babu in the recently released SPYder which has upped her star status. Her screen presence added with her active participation in the promos has made her one of the most in-demand female leads not only in Tollywood but in Kollywood as well.
Reports are that producers are willing to shell out close to Rs. 2.5 crores to sign her up for their Tamil films and Rakul is only too willing to tap into the Tamil film market. Currently Nayanthara and Anushka Shetty tops the list of highly paid actresses and Rakul will soon join their league, say sources.
Though she made her acting debut with the Kannada film Ghilli in 2009, her debut in Kollywood was made in 2012 with the Arun Vijay starrer Thadaiyara Thaakka and was also seen in Puthagam in 2013. She then began to concentrate in the Telugu film industry and went to work with some of the top league directors and heroes.
Enjoying a huge popularity among the Telugu film buffs, producers are of the opinion that her presence in Tamil movies would be an added advantage when they are dubbed in Telugu. Almost all the leading Tamil heroesâ€™ films are being dubbed in Telugu with stars like Surya, Vijay, Ajith, Vikram and Karthi being popular figures among the Telugu audiences.
Incidentally, Rakul is currently playing the female lead in the Karthi starrer Theeran Adhigaram Ondru which is being directed by H Vinoth. The film, also starring Abhimanyu Singh, Bose Venkat and Scarlett Mellish Wilson, is due to hit the silver screens on November 17 this year.
