Suriya’s highly anticipated political drama, NGK is all set to hit the screens on May 31st. On this occasion, we had a brief interview with the film’s heroine, Rakul Preet Singh. Here is the transcript.
Q) What is NGK all about?
A) NGK is a political thriller. It is the journey of a common man named Nandagopal Krishna in politics. What sort of challenges will he face in his journey is narrated in an intriguing manner.
Q) Tell us about your role in the film?
A) My character’s name is Vanitha. I play a strong and ambitious lady who dreams big to emerge a power-centric political leader. When Selvaraghavan sir narrated the script, I was thrilled and tried to present myself in a new dimension. I worked very hard to fit into the character.
Q) About your director Selvaraghavan?
A) He is a very intelligent and work-minded director who has crystal clear clarity on every aspect. He is quite focused on every minor detail. I’m blessed to have worked under his direction.
Q) Working with Suriya?
A) It’s obviously a memorable experience. He is very sweet and a comfortable co-star to work with. Being such a big superstar, Suriya sir used to ensure comfort for all other artistes on the sets.
Q) Any combination scenes between you and Sai Pallavi?
A) Yeah, but a very few scenes. But we had a good time while shooting.
Q) How is the response you are getting for your Hindi film De De Pyaar De?
A) I was just overwhelmed with the response I got for the film and my character. I know that De De will work out and that is the reason I gave bulk dates for the film by sacrificing Telugu and Tamil films.
Q) Next projects?
A) Apart from Manmadhudu 2, I have one more film in Hindi and I’m yet to sign a few new films in the South.
