Rakul and her mother give their first interview together where they opened up on life, love and everything else. Her mother says, “I only prepared her for Miss India. I wanted her to take part in the competition.”She says, “I only prepared her for Miss India. I wanted her to take part in the competition.”
Rakul says while others decide it themselves, for her it was her mom who knew she had the potential to be a heroine. “There used to be auditions and I told her about it. She initially was telling me, ‘Aise kaise?’ I knew she can do it. Then I moulded her,” shares her mother. Rakul laughs, “I kept telling her that you need to wear a bikini for Miss India. I said I’m not prepared for that. But she was confident. She said, ‘You’ll prepare for it, isme kya hai?’ It was also her mother who took her shopping to get clothes for Miss India. “You won’t believe but I must add this because so many kids don’t get their parents’ support. But my mom and my dad were more comfortable than I was with the idea of wearing a bikini. In fact, when we were going to shop for the bikinis, my dad kept telling us to buy vibrant coloured bikinis and not the dull ones.“

Rakul started off in the South with some terrific performance driven roles before she made her inroads into Bollywood. Talking about that, her mother shared, “It is always difficult to let your kid stay away from you. But then you have to make yourself understand that.” Rakul asserts, “My mom has sacrificed a lot for us. She used to teach in the same school that Aman and I would study in, each time we relocated because of my dad’s transfers. She left her job to give both of us time. In fact, after I became an actress and Aman was still into sports, my dad also quit his army job to take care of my brother.”
Rakul was last seen turning heads opposite Ajay Devgn in De De Pyaar De, followed by a special appearance in Marjaavaan. Now, she has John Abraham starrer Attack and her untitled next with Arjun Kapoor that’s already on floors. But with Coronavirus outbreak stalling shoot, both her films have now been pushed till there’s more clarity.
