Preetika Rao proved her finesse as an actor in Colors channel’s Beintehaa. The gorgeous actress garnered heaps of appreciation as she played the role of Aliya in this romantic show opposite Harshad Arora. The show was a big hit and Preetika was honoured with many awards for her performance in this much-loved show including Zee Gold Awards and Indian Television Academy Awards among others.
However, the show didn’t last long and ended within an year. However, last month, the actress hit the screens yet again with a show on Star Plus, i.e. Love Ka Hai Intezaar. This show initially starred Sanjeeda Sheikh and Keith Sequeira in lead roles but as it took a 20 years leap, Preetika Rao and hunk Mohit Sehgal are leading the show with their sizzling love banter.
Not many of you will be aware that Preetika has worked in films too. She made her acting debut with the Tamil romantic film, Chikku Bukku. However, she soon left South Indian movies for a diploma course in broadcast journalism from New York Film Academy. It was finally in 2014 that she made transition from regional cinema to national television. Indeed a great decision!
But did you know that she is the younger sister of a very famous Bollywood actress?
Yes, she is the sister of award winning actress Amrita Rao. Well, we are sure you wouldn’t be surprised to know this because if you have a close look at Preetika’s pictures, you will realise that the Rao sisters resemble so much!
In fact, in a Bigg Boss episode, Preetika and Harshad Arora had come to promote their show and Salman Khan was startled to see how Preetika resembled Amrita Rao. And gushing over the compliment, Preetika told that she was Amrita’s real sister.
