Filmmaker Rahul Ravindran has rubbished rumours claiming actress Rakul Preet Singh hasn't joined the sets of 'Manmadhudu 2' in Portugal since she has been asked to gain weight for her role. The director took to Twitter to clarify and wrote, “Contrary to some rumours, Rakul has been shooting with us from day one of the Portuguese schedule. We have all been gushing non-stop about how stunning she's looking and thanking our lucky stars that we got her. What an incredible talent she is.”
'Manmadhudu 2' stars Nagarjuna and Rakul Preet in lead roles. After briefly shooting in Hyderabad, the makers left to Portugal recently to shoot predominant portion of the film. 'Manmadhudu 2', a sequel to super hit film 'Manmadhudu', marks the first time collaboration of Rakul and Nagarjuna as a pair on screen. This is Rahul's second directorial project. He made his debut as a director last year with Telugu romantic drama 'Chi La Sow', which was bankrolled by Nagarjuna's Annapurna Studios.
Last seen on screen in Telugu multi-starrer 'Devadas' alongside Nani, Nagarjuna will sport a really different look in 'Manmadhudu 2' which will hit the screens later this year.
