After she entered Bollywood with a rocking debut in the movie ‘City Lights’, people thought that another outsider will make it big in a Bollywood industry just like Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Rajkummar Rao. Little did Patralekha imagine that her second movie (Love Games) will turn her world upside down. In a recent interview by a media channel, she openly talked about the depression and despair she experienced and her relationship with Rajkummar Rao, along with her upcoming Bollywood project.
When asked about the main reason she chose ‘Love Games’, the actress has an interesting answer. She told that despite getting appreciated by critics for her first movie, she did not get any work in Bollywood for six long months. Therefore, after waiting for a long time, she directly approached director Vikram Bhatt and this was the only movie that he was making at that time. She quietly accepted the role saying that she had nothing else under her wing to do at that time. Halfway through, she realized that this movie is not going to bring any success or recognition and that is what exactly happened. She bore the brunt of this ‘soul-sucking sex comedy’ and got comments like ‘neither she has a body nor attitude’ to pull off this role. She was called ‘crazy’ and critics gave scathing remarks to the film. The actress told that she started getting self-doubts and questioned her abilities and career choice as well.
Even after such a mishap, Patralekha did not give up. Her boyfriend ‘Rajkumar Rao’ has stood like a pillar of strength with her all the time. She went on to say that ‘I am Very Happy’ that she has someone like ‘Rajkummar Rao’ in her life as he is understanding to an unimaginable extent. Ask her about whether she took any help for getting work in Bollywood from her current beau and her reply is amazing. She says that ‘it would crush her self-respect’. On the work front, her upcoming movie ‘Nanu Ki Jaanu’ by Faraz Haider is releasing soon. The actress tells that the movie is really entertaining and will surely make the audience go gaga.
