After De De Pyaar De with Ajay Devgn, Rakul Preet Singh has now pinned her hopes on her Telugu film, Manmadhudu 2, which sees Nagarjuna as the co-star. The second teaser of the film released recently. It shows her in the two avatars of her character. She's a well-mannered girl at home, but once she steps out, she's a livewire. The unit currently wrapped up the shoot in Switzerland. Shooting with Nagarjuna was a learning as well as an enjoyable experience for her.

Who laughed the loudest?

While shooting for Jhootha Kahin Ka, Jimmy Sheirgill and Sunny Singh could not stop cracking up while enacting a funny scene. Director Smeep Kang was keen on a deadpan delivery but the two were unable to control their laughter. Their antics also made the entire unit chuckle. Kang was forced to stop the shoot mid-way. It took a while for the actors to be ready for the shot again.
