Bollywood actress Patralekha says she and her boyfriend actor Rajkumar Rao do not interfere in each other’s work and both of them keep their professional spaces separate.
The 26-year-old actress made her debut in 2014 with critically acclaimed “CityLights” opposite Rajkumar.
“We don’t nag each other, not possessive in terms of our work, so we don’t interfere with each other’s work. We know how difficult it is to get the work we are doing. It is not easy being an actor,” Patralekha told PTI.
She will next be seen in erotic-thriller “Love Games”. The film features her in a bold role, but the actress said there was no apprehension from Rajkumar, whom she looks upto as an actor.
“I did tell him about the story, but we don’t mingle in small talks of ‘how many kissing scenes are there’. Having said that, if I am confused about how to take on a character, he guides me. I look upto him because he is a really good actor. If I have some confusion on how to do a scene, I always ask for his take,” she said.
Patralekha wishes to do an urban romance-drama with the “Aligarh” actor, unlike her debut film which featured both of them hailing from a rural background.
“I really want to do a film with him again. I want something which is closer to us, may be a real-life romance drama which is of our age. Raj does a lot of serious films, but he is a funny guy. I want something that can bring our characters out. I hope we get something like ‘Saathiya’,” she said.
Directed by Vikram Bhatt, “Love Games” is scheduled to release on April 8.
