Rakul Preet Singh who is set to make her foray into Bollywood with Yaariyaan, the directorial debut of T-Series’ head honcho Bhushan Kumar’s wife Divya Kumar, has a habit of reaching her sets half an hour before time!
When asked about it, she credits her tendency to her army connection. Rakul’s dad is a colonel in the army and she has done her final years of schooling from Army Public School in Delhi. A mathematics graduate, she has studied financial management.
“They say discipline is the soul of an army. I have grown up inculcating the values of timeliness, obedience, restraint and commitment. I’m realizing that qualities like these go a long way in shaping life,” Rakul Preet Singh says with dreams in her eyes.
Rakul Preet Singh’s family background puts the gal in a unique league of Bollywood beauties likePreity Zinta, Priyanka Chopra, Sushmita Sen, Anushka Sharma, Chitrangada Singh andLara Dutta -- all of who hail from military backgrounds, with parents posted in various rungs of the military hierarchy
