Preethika Rao is the younger sister of famous Bollywood actress Amrita Rao. This model turned actress made her debut in the recently released film Chikku Bukku. She co-starred along with the famous actress Shreya Charan and actor Arya in the film.
Her ravishing beauty and natural acting won the hearts of Kollywood fans immediately. She received good reviews from critics too. Her majestic style mixed with childlike innocence has made her the true heroine of the film. She was thronged by fans in the Bangalore premier arranged for the publicity of the film. Though Shreya and Preethika were given two equally important roles in the film, Shreya’s imitation of Genelia’s mannerisms did not attract the fans like Preethika’s original style.
Preethika Rao is flooded with offers from Tollywood and Kollywood. Sources say she is waiting for a grand opening in Tollywood too with a famous hero like Mahesh Babu or Pawan Kalyan, but has not signed in any future projects so far. The actress lauded the director Manigandhan for giving her such a strong role in her debut film.
Preethika told press people she enjoyed working with Arya in the beautiful locations in Kariaikudi. She felt like she was living another life in the film dressed so traditionally and playing with the village kids. She praised Arya for his professional acting skill and good humor sense. She considers him as a great inspiration. Preethika and Shreya Charan do not come together even in one scene of the film. But Preethika was very happy about Shreya doing the role in the film as it paved way for good publicity of the film.
She also told she received a lot of tips from Shreya on acting and managing her career. She is planning to make her second film in Telugu and wants to be known as a good actress, rather than a glam doll. This model turned actress feels fortunate that she got a chance to prove her talents in her first film itself. She is very picky in choosing the roles of her upcoming projects as she wants come to limelight in Kollywood and Tollywood rather than Bollywod. A hearty welcome to Preethika Rao – the new Tamil heroine.
