Will Rakul win back Telugu fan base?

Till the other day, ravishing Rakul was the flavour of the season and everything she touched was turned into gold. She did films will all top heroes and trended on top. But suddenly, she went out of currency in Telugu. She tried for a perch to hold on to in Bollywood but Ayyari disappointed her to no end. Then she forayed into Kollywood. Khakee, which she did last year with Karthi helped her to some extent. The Tamil audience liked her presence.

Now she is coming up with Dev, again with hero Karthi. The film is set for Valentine Day release. This is the story of a confident girl with a lot of chutzpah, who falls in love with an adventure-seeking boy. Her role, sources say, is very finely etched and she has pinned all her hopes on this film. Though Dev is coming with not much of a brouhaha, the recently released trailer has proved that the film has a lot of zing in it.

The film has Harris Jairaj scoring the music and has ensemble cast including Ramya Krishna and Prakash Raj. Rakul feels that if the film goes on to become a hit, it would again put her on a solid perch down south. She feels that one good resounding hit is enough to breathe life into her career in South and she can rise again a la Kajal Aggarwal.
