Randeep Hooda has been signed to play Raja Ravi Verma in the movie titled ‘Rang Rasiya’. Ravi will play a painter, who creates controversy in the 18th Century by painting nude women. Nandana Sen will play the character of ‘Sugunabai’ a sensuous woman, who posed nude for Varma and he eventually fell in love with her.
Rang Rasiya required the willowy actress to dress and look a certain way — a young Maharashtrian girl with long hair, light eyes, waist chain and a nose ring. She also gained five kilos for the role since she had to look voluptuous rather than thin.
Her debut movie was a moderate success that portrayed her as a homely, feminine looking South Indian girl.
Meenakshi who is not familiar with wearing half sari or sari found it challenging to wear one in her debut movie.
Now she is back to her favorite attire, modern clothes in her upcoming movies Perumal and Rajathi Raja.
