Despite her negative role in RX 100, Payal Rajput became an overnight star following the film’s release. Now, with RDX Love all set to release this month, the actress spoke openly about her struggles at the pre-release event of the film.
“There’s no denying that RX 100 changed my life completely. And although people say that I became an overnight star, I struggled for nearly six years in Mumbai. Many South directors came to Mumbai for auditions but I was rejected by all of them. I was shattered and even went into a depression,” reveals Payal, who adds, “But destiny has its own way and today, I am in the top 10 South Indian actresses. It feels really good and I am proud of myself.”
Praising the content of her upcoming film, Payal says, “There is entertainment, education and also a warning about tobacco, staying safe, etc. I was certain that I had to do the film, which is why I signed it on.”
Apparently, shooting for the film was very difficult. “We shot for 45 days near Papikondalu and Polavaram in Andhra Pradesh where there was no network, no food, no hotels, but still I have no regrets as I enjoyed myself thoroughly,” she reveals.
Payal is confident that this movie will mark another milestone in her career. “These kinds of scripts are rare and I am lucky that I am part of this movie,” she says, expressing gratitude to the film’s director Shankar Bhanu.
