The sizzling and sensational diva, Rakul Preet Singh recently graced VOOT's fitness chat show TikTok presents Work It Up hosted by fitness icon Sophie Choudry and gave a sneak-peek into her fitness journey while sweating it out. During an intense conversation on health, wellness, and keeping fit, Rakul makes interesting revelations about her personal life and spills some beans about her first celebrity crush.

Talking about how Rakul led a very disciplined life and was introduced to the world of Bollywood later in her life, Sophie questions "You were introduced to movies a little late but there are some actors who you must have seen on screen and thought of romancing with, in reel life, if not real?" Rakul says, "Like a celebrity crush type?" and goes on to reveal "So, I never had a celebrity crush till I saw 'Band Baaja Baaraat'."

Well, the answer is quite obvious and so is Sophie's reaction, who is also a big fan of Ranveer. "Are you serious?", quips Sophie when Rakul Preet repeats herself and mentions "I never had a celebrity crush and Ranveer Singh is my celebrity crush." Sophie, who still can't believe Rakul goes on to add "I love Ranveer Singh and he is your first celebrity crush."

Rakul Preet Singh further reveals, "I told Ranveer Singh that I never had a celebrity crush, you are the only one and he said 'Mujhe pata hai' and I asked him, how do you know?" Going back in the memory lane, Rakul goes on to narrate the incident when she made the confession to Ranveer only to find out that he was already aware of this. She says, "So this is really funny, he is going to kill me for this. In one of the interviews during the promotions of 'Yaariyan', they asked me this and I said, Ranveer Singh. He apparently saw that video somewhere and he is like who is this new girl who is saying Ranveer, let me check out."

Rakul Preet Singh further adds that she got to know this when the two met in London for India V/S Pakistan match. "That's when he told me this incident and it's been Ranveer Singh for the fact that his energy yaar," expresses Rakul.
