Rakul Preet opened up recently on her role in Kamal Haasan’s Indian 2 and said that she plays a confident girl in the film. Directed by Shankar, who also helmed the original, Indian (1996), the sequel will see Kamal Haasan reprise his role as Senapathy, a freedom fighter-turned-vigilante who hunts down corrupt individuals he believes are misusing the freedom he fought for.

Sharing insights about her character in the film, Rakul said, “It is surely one of the most special films of my career. Not just for the people that I am working with but also because of my character. I play a headstrong, confident girl, who knows exactly what she wants. And somewhere, I resonate completely with this character in my real life. It’s too early to disclose more, but yes, it’s been a delight to work with Shankar sir, pulling off this character by picking up from the nuances he shared with me.”

In addition to Indian 2, Rakul's upcoming projects include the Ajay Devgn starrer De De Pyaar De 2, as well as Mere Husband Ki Biwi alongside Arjun Kapoor and Bhumi Pednekar. She will also star in Ameeri with a stellar cast including Neena Gupta, Chunky Pandey, and Simone Singh.

Indian 2 also features Kajal Agarwal, SJ Surya, Bobby Simha, Vivek, Priya Bhavani Shankar, Brahmanandam, Samuthirakani, Nedumudi Venu, Delhi Ganesh, Manobala, Jagan, Kalidas Jayaram, Gulshan Grover, Zakir Hussain, Piyush Mishra, and Akhilendra Mishra. It will be released in theatres on July 12. Meanwhile, Indian will re-release on June 12.
