Deepti Naval sees Sridevi, Madhuri in Yaariyaan newbie Rakul Preet

Image

Rakul Preet who is set to enter Bollywood with Yaariyaan; the directorial debut of T-Series’ head honcho Bhushan Kumar’s wife Divya Kumar, is flattered.

 Image

While shooting for the upcoming movie, her senior co-star; the critically acclaimed Deepti Naval, praised Rakul to the skies; comparing her with Bollywood stalwarts such as Sridevi and Madhuri Dixit.

“I’m pleasantly surprised as much as I am delighted with the praise,” beams Rakul.

The newbie is a trained Bharatanatyam dancer and Deepti Naval is keen she pursues dance more seriously. “Deepti mam feels I should capitalize on my Indian looks and hone my dancing skills. She told me, she felt that none after Madhuri or Sridevi has taken that place.”

Rakul has earlier proved her versatility, starting out with films in the South. She also made her mark a year ago, when she participated in the Miss India beauty pageant.

The girl won various titles like Miss India People’s Choice, Miss Beautiful Eyes, Miss Beautiful Smile, Miss Fresh Face, Miss Talented, and emerged the third runner-up finalist.

Comparisons between Jiah Khan and Viveka Babajee unfair?

“Although there are many similarities between the tragic deaths of Jiah Khan and Viveka Babajee, it would be unfair to compare the two incidents, simply because Viveka’s family never admitted to her case being a suicide,” said PR specialist Dale Bhagwagar, who was roped in as a spokesperson by the Babajee family to address media misinterpretations after her demise.

 Image

“The Babajee family always maintained that they wanted the Police to investigate and the truth to prevail,” Bhagwagar pointed out.

 Image

The similarities include both the personalities found hanging from a ceiling fanat their apartments. Both hung from a piece of cloth. Again, in both cases, alover was involved. While stockbroker Gautam Vora was the last person to visit Viveka at her residence, actor Aditya Pancholi’s son Suraj was the last person Jiah Khan is said to have spoken to.

 Image

There was a ‘depression theory’ which followed both deaths. Viveka was initially written about in the media, as a person who was depressed, was on anti-depressants and suicidal. But as soon as Bhagwagar took charge, he called Press conferences on behalf of the Babajee family and revealed that her family felt, this was completely untrue. “This fabricated depression theory is being floated by Gautam Vora’s friends after her demise,” he had clarified.

 Image

Now in a shocking turn of events, Jiah’s mother Rabia Khanand sister Karisma have described a similar situation. “Reports that my daughter was depressed because of work are all rubbish,” said Rabia Khan. The Khan family also denied reports of traces of alcohol and anti-depressant pills in Jiah’s stomach. Karisma stated she expected Suraj to come and tell the truth of what really happened that night and what forced Jiah to take her life.

 Image

This is yet again reminiscent of the statement the Babajee family’s spokesperson Dale Bhagwagar had made after Viveka’s demise in 2010. “The Babajee family wants Gautam Vora to come up with the truth and nothing but the truth, about the death of Viveka,” he had said.

 Image

Meanwhile, the Police is reported to have taken the Viveka Babajee demise as a reference case study to further learn and investigate Jiah Khan’s case.

Rakul Preet to debut in Bollywood with Yaariyaan

The glamorous industry of Bollywood owes a lot to the Miss India pageant; a talent house which has produced some of the biggest film stars. The names include Nutan, Zeenat Aman, Juhi Chawla, Meenakshi Seshadri, Sushmita Sen, Aishwarya Rai and Priyanka Chopra.

 Image

And now another Miss India participant Rakul Preet is all set to enter the glittering world with Yaariyaan; the directorial debut of T-Series’ head honcho Bhushan Kumar’s wife Divya Kumar.

 Image

“Yaariyaan is about five college friends and I play a nerd in the film. One who is very good with numbers,” quips the leading lady. The character is quite of her liking, as the tall and lissome Rakul is a mathematics graduate, who has studied financial management.

Moreover, like many previous beauty pageant winners, she comes from a family background of the Indian Army. Rakul won various titles in the Miss India pageant of 2011. She bagged Miss India People’s Choice, Miss Beautiful Eyes, Miss Beautiful Smile, Miss Fresh Face, Miss Talented and emerged the third runner-up finalist.

Soon after, she participated in Miss Tourism in China and rose to the sixth position in the international pageant. But that’s not all to her Libran multi-faceted personality! Apart from Hindi, English and Punjabi, the gal has now learnt to speak Tamil and Telugu and also acted in Southern hits.

Her die-hard interests include horse riding, Bharatanatyam, and hold your breath; golf too. Now, now! How many Bollywood actresses would have engaged in playing golf! But if you think, that’s enough for Rakul, you are mistaken!

The girl is a fitness freak with gymming and swimming being her daily addictions. She’s a Blue Belt in Karate, plays cricket, basket ball and even lawn tennis! And wait, did we tell you, she’s particularly proud of her 36-24-36 figure! Ooh la l
