While there's no official confirmation from the actress' side, sources close to her insist that she has already taken her decision and started implementing on the same. Rakul's a popular name in regional as well as Bollywood film industry. She has a good number of projects lined up and it includes Indian 2 with Kamal Haasan and a cross border love story with Arjun Kapoor.
