Actress Rakul Preet Singh, who is busy promoting "Kick 2", says that the Ravi Teja starrer will be a laughter riot, apart from conveying a strong social message.

In an interview with The New Indian Express, Rakul Preet revealed her excitement over "Kick 2". She said that the Surender Reddy-directed movie deals with a serious subject and offered her a very good scope for performance. She is all praise for Ravi Teja for his simplicity and professionalism.

"It's going to be a laughter riot for sure because that's what Kick was also known for. But at the same time, it's not going to be senseless, nonsensical humour. It has a very strong message and a very powerful story beneath all the laughter that you are going to see," Rakul Preet told the daily.

The actress says that the story of "Kick 2" revolves around her character. "I have two looks in this film. But it's not a double role. This is also a film where there is a lot for the girl to do, it's a central character that takes the film forward. It's a role that has a balance of comedy, a lot of emotions. It is a very strong character," gushed Rakul Preet.

"Kick 2" is a sequel to director Surender Reddy's action comedy-thriller film, which was a big hit at the box office. The huge success of its prequel has raised viewers' expectations, putting the unit under pressure. Rakul Preet is happy that the film is set for a wide release.

"Expectations are higher since Kick had certainly raised the bar and we have to match up to that level with Kick 2. So yes, there is pressure but I'm also very excited and I'm happy that it will have a wider reach. But of course, when expectations are high, the pressure is higher," Rakul Preet said.

Rakul Preet also praised Ravi Teja for his support. "He's very dedicated, punctual and professional but what impressed me was how friendly he is as a co-star. Before shooting for the film I was slightly anxious considering I was working with such a senior actor and I was wondering how I would live up to his comic timing. But he's so natural that he instantly makes you feel comfortable," she said.
