Rakul Preet Singh was holding the top slot in Tollywood till last year. No other actress would have done the kind of films acted in by Rakul in such a short time without bothering about hits or flops. She did consecutive movies with both small-time heroes and star heroes. Rakul was busy in Telugu and Tamil films and when it looked as if she will remain on top for another five-six year, Raku’s first film with Mahesh ‘Spider’ bombed dashing her Tamil hopes and dealing a blow to the offers in Telugu. Suddenly, she was without work for seven to eight months. At one time, this beauty was keen to work in Bollywood but got only disappointment. Rakul, who is dieting and going to gym for size zero, is currently working with Naga Chaitanya in Tollywood and with Surya in Tamil.
However, at a time when Rakul Preet is struggling, another heroine has come closer to the top position in Tollywood. Puja Hegde, who came to limelight with ‘DJ Duvvada Jagannadham’ is busy working in films with Mahesh, NTR and Prabhas in the same way as Rakul was one time getting series of offers. It can be said that Puja Hegde has taken Rakul’s position. It is being said that Rakul is feeling jealous to see Puja Hegde suddenly becoming a top heroine. It is natural for any heroine, who was getting many offers to feel jealous when another heroine enters and reaches to the top.
