Rakul Preet opens up on her link-up with Rana Daggubati


Rakul Preet is often linked up with actor Rana Daggubati and every time the actress deny her relationship with Rana. Rakul in a chat show clarified that she is not in a relationship with Rana and is busy with her professional commitments.

Talking on Sophie Choudry’s show, Rakul said, “Oh My God!, We are neighbours and part of a close friend group with Lakshmi Manchu, who is also my best friend. Rana is also one of my closest friends like that you know? He’s been a friend since I started my film journey. When I became friends with him, he was in a relationship.”

“I have had no affairs because I think I’ve been too busy working. I’m single,” she added.

Last year, Rakul Preet talked to Hindustan Times, “We’ve been hearing this for such a long time and [we] can’t help but laugh. This is just a rumour. Rana and I are very good friends. He’s there for me whenever I need him. I stay in Hyderabad, away from family, and there I have a group of 15-20 friends. Rana and I are a part of the group. So, we often hang out together and are neighbours, too. In the group, only two-three [people] are single, and we’re among them. And I think people tend to link those who are single.”

She had also talked about her single status and added, “In fact, I often tell my friends, ‘Guys, find me someone, what are you doing?’ And they are on it. On a serious note, I want to concentrate on my work. When love happens, I’d prefer to announce it rather than hide it.”

Rakul recently shared her views on being trolled on social media. She said, “I don’t really pay attention to trolls. It was only once in my life being on social media for so long that I have hit back on trolls like I did [earlier this year]. Those who spread negativity don’t have anything better to do in their lives. I feel only when you are sitting idle, you can criticise people who are out there and working.”
