Rakul’s Day 1 with Mahesh, Gorgeous Punjabi beauty Rakul Preet Singh has today joined the shooting of superstar Mahesh Babu’s new film that is being directed by AR Murugadoss.
A new schedule of the much expected bilingual has commenced in Hyderabad on Tuesday. With Rakul joining the shoot, makers have planned to shoot romantic scenes between her and Mahesh. This is the first time for Rakul to romance Mahesh on silver screen. She said that she was very excited to start the first day of shooting with Mahesh.
In many of her interviews, she claimed that she would sign any project that has Mahesh in lead role without reading the script. After missing the chance to romance Mahesh in disastrous film ‘Brahmotsavam’, Rakul got lucky to be paired opposite him in this crazy film after Parineeti Chopra had walked out at the last minute.
