RX 100 actress Payal Rajput on Tara Sutaria stepping into her shoes: Nobody can do this role better than me

Student of the Year 2 actress Tara Sutaria has bagged another project. She will soon be paired opposite Ahan Shetty in his debut Bollywood film which is a Hindi remake of the Telugu blockbuster RX 100. The original starred Kartikeya Gummakonda and Payal Rajput in the lead roles. While Ahaan will essay Kartikeya’s role, Tara will step into Payal’s shoes. While talking to Deccan Chronicle, Payal took a dig at Tara, although not directly. The actress said, “I’m really happy that Sajid Nadiadwala sir decided to remake RX 100 in Bollywood. It’s good that they cast Tara for the role but I think nobody can do this role better than me.”

When the actress was further asked if she thinks Tara would be able to do justice with the character, Payal quickly shared her skepticism. “I have not seen her acting yet. But if Sajid sir signed her for the role then he must have seen her talent before choosing for the film,” the lady said.

The character that Payal played was quite controversial since it had all the shades right from innocence to boldness. Talking about the character, Payal, said, “Initially, I was little nervous as the character was quite bold. It was difficult for me to do such kind of role for my debut film in Telugu. But I always wanted to break the stereotype. I want to do every kind of movies. I did something different for which people appreciated me.”


Meanwhile, producer Sajid Nadiadwala thinks that Tara is a proficient actress and she will be able to do justice to the character. Earlier in a statement he said, “We have found our leading lady and I must say that Tara is really a proficient actor. I feel they (Tara and Ahan) will make a romantic and an interesting pair. We shall begin shooting from June.”

Now comparisons are inevitable. So let’s talk once the movie is out.
