Bollywood actor Rakul Preet Singh who was last seen in ‘Runway 34’ along with Ajay Devgn has stated that she is never worried about how many other co-stars are there in the movie. She feels that she is a secure artiste and knows that no matter how many other stars are part of the movie no one can take away her contribution to the movie.
In a chat with HT, the ‘De De Pyar De’ actor says, “I am a greedy actor, not an insecure actor. I am very secure as a person. I’m greedy for more work for my own growth, not for any other reason, and not to be telling anybody, or not to be in a number chart.”
She also goes on to add, “All that subsequently happens, but that’s not what I’m chasing. I’m chasing my growth and chasing opportunities”.
She then adds that she never feels satisfied when it is about her career. Rakul says, “I’m happy but not satisfied, because there’s always more that you want. Your fire should always be burning, because I’m someone who craves for more. I’m very grateful for the films that I have… I am a greedy actor. I want people to give me more opportunities.”
She feels her sense of security stems from self-belief. She adds, “I know that it can’t be shaken. When I started out, say 10 years back, when I moved from Delhi to Mumbai, the only thing I had was confidence. And that remains unshaken. Even if there are two actors or three actors in a film, (I am not fretting about it) … Nobody can take away your contribution from the film. Every actor has their own space, so any sort of insecurities will actually spoil your own headspace. Nobody else gets affected.”
She also says that getting into this mindset is not a challenge for her. She likes to see the positive side of it all. She says, “It is how you are tuned and you have to actively consciously make that effort. Of course, I have low days. Like, this year, I have six releases,” she says, adding. “But in the last two years of the pandemic, I had shot all these films. There are days when you feel ‘wish one film had been released before’. Nevertheless, you tell yourself that this is what it is… And look at the brighter side”.
