Yes, after all that is where she debuted – in Tamil film, Chikku Bukku, recently. Being based in Mumbai (with her sister Amrita Rao), Preetika may be missing out on plum offers in Tamil. But, Tollywood grabbed her and she is busy shooting with Varun Sandesh (Happy Days) for director Sravan’s untitled film on college romance. “It is a great experience doing a Telugu film immediately after my first one in Tamil. Despite the fact that Telugu is not as easy as Tamil, I am dubbing my dialogues and even singing all my songs! Compared to my very traditional role in Chikku Bukku, here I am playing a college student in an out-and-out teenybopper romantic story with Varun and Randhir Reddy (also from Happy Days). But, my heart is really in Tamil and I am dying to play a glamorous, modern girl in a commercial film,” says Preetika.
