Urvashi Rautela, who debuted in Bollywood with Sunny Deol-starrer Singh Saab the Great, spoke about her first role during a Facebook Live from The Indian Express page.

When a fan asked her about her favourite film, Rautela answered, “I love all my films but I think first film is always special. Singh Sahab The Great was really special. I was cast by Dream Girl Hema Malini ji. It was a very different and a very Indian role.” When one of them asked to revisit the best compliment she has received in her career so far, Rautela answered, “I received the best compliment from Amitabh Bachchan for Kaabil.”

Urvashi Rautela also spoke about coronavirus pandemic and how Indian government has taken the right decision by announcing a 21-day lockdown. “I do understand what are we going through and during this difficult times, all we need to have is patience and pray that we recover from this current situation with a lot of strength. I think the 21 days lockdown is a good step in order to protect ourselves and others from the pandemic,” the actor said.

Rautela added that she is looking at the lockdown in a positive light as “we have got a break from a routine life and we can give time to the things we wanted to do before.”

“I am spending time with family. I am doing household chores. I am reading some books. I am actually enjoying my time. I am in my house, not stepping out and not even meeting anyone. I want to request everyone to follow the guidelines given by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Let’s not go out and stay home because that is the only way we can fight this pandemic,” Rautela said when asked how she was spending her self-isolation days.

Informing fans about her upcoming films, Rautela signed off by saying, “I have two films that are coming. First is a female centric film and second is a remake of a Tamil superhit film.”
