Someone's loss is another's gain. And this is exactly what happened
when Vidya Balan failed to give her dates for an upcoming Tamil
movie Chikku Bukku. Debutante Preeta Rao, sister of
Bollywood actress Amrita Rao, was roped in after Vidya walked out
from Manikandan's project.
Preeta says that debuting in a film which is being directed
Manigandan is a dream come true for her. She has enjoyed working
with Manikandan's team and now she is eagerly awaiting for the
release of the film, says the actress.
She was a model and had also been involved with a Mumbai-based
magazine for which she used to write columns on Bollywood films and
actors. The girl confirms that it was her profile picture from the
magazine"s column, which initially drew the attention of Manikandan
to approach her for the role in Chikku Bukku.
