Bollywood actor Rakul Preet Singh has recently signed a film with Ronnie Screwvala’s banner RSVP which is a direct-to-digital project. In the film Rakul will be playing the role of a condom tester. The yet-to-be titled film has been locked and will go on floors once situation returns to normalcy. But not many know that Rakul wasn’t the first choice for the movie.
A source reveals to Bollywood Hungama that “Before Rakul, the same project was first offered to Sara Ali Khan. Sara, who is also doing the Vicky Kaushal starrer Ashwatthama under the same banner, was approached for the social drama. But after the narration, she politely refused the film. She informed the RSVP team she won’t be able to do the role of a sexecutive in the project but RSVP is speaking to her for another project now.”
According to the source film was earlier offered to other young actress also, “After Sara declined the offer, the film was offered to Ananya Panday who also let it pass. Apparently, Ananya and her team felt that the concept and the role was too bold for her, so she didn’t want to do it.”
The source concludes, “It’s a quirky drama that also aims at destigmatising the use of condoms. Indians still shy while buying condoms or even uttering the word. The film will be a bold but humorous take on the same, much like Dream Girl.”
