Currently Rakul Preet Singh is slowly coming into the form. Since last year the number of offers for her came down drastically but now the offers are gradually increasing. It was thought after ‘Spider’ setback that Rakul Preet Singh will not get chances in Kollywood. However, Rakul got the role of second heroine in ‘NGK’ being directed by Selvaraghavan with Surya as the hero. Sai Pallavi got the chance of playing first heroine while Rakul Preet, who has no big craze, got the offer of second heroine. Sai Pallavi is playing the role of Surya’s wife in ‘NGK’.
It’s the season of biopic and in Tollywood and Kollywood the biopic trend has reached a crescendo. With ‘Mahanati’ film becoming a hit, the trend picked up. In Tollywood, NTR and YSR biopic films are being made in competition while in Tamil films the biopic on MGR and Jayalalitha are expected to be launched soon. There is a talking going on in Kollywood film circles that ‘NGK’ being made in Surya- Selvaraghavan combination is based on the life of actor politician MGR.
Sai Pallavi is playing the role of Surya’s wife in this movie. It is being said that another key woman in MGR’s life that is former CM Jayalalitha’s role is being played by Rakul Preet Singh. However, the film unit was taking all precautions to ensure that the news of Rakul Preet Singh playing Jayalalitha doesn’t go out. The film unit was taking the precautions because it anticipated problems if it becomes public that the film will have Jayalalitha’s role. However, the report still came out and created a sensation. There is still no clear information on whether Rakul is playing Jayalalitha’s role in ‘NGK’.
