We look forward to Aakanksha Singh who has headed towards South and wish she conquers the Telugu film industry just like she did years ago in the television industry.

You last saw Aakanksha Singh as Alia Bhatt’s flatmate and fellow air hostess trainee blockbuster film Badrinath Ki Dulhania released earlier this year. The 26-year-old svelte actress is all set to start her Tollywood journey. Aakanksha Singh is doing her first Telugu film opposite Sumanth which will be directed by Gautham. The actress who rose to the fame with the success of her first stint on Indian television, Colors’ daily soap Na Bole Tum Na Maine Kuch Kaha is quite a hot shot on Instagram. She may not have been actively seen till recently we saw her in Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt’s rom-com, but that has quite little to do with her popularity on the social media. In just seven pictures you will be convinced why you must follow Aakanksha Singh on Instagram.

Aakanksha is a physiotherapist turned actress, and we thank the stars for her decision. She showed off her acting skills right in the first serial, Na Bole Tum Na Maine Kuch Kaha. Playing a young widow with two kids, Aakanksha showed no apprehensions playing a non-glamorous role, unlike her contemporaries. Aakanksha was only 21 to start off her acting journey with such an influential role like NBTNMKK.

But the serious looking Aakanksha Singh is anything like her memorable daily soap character. Her Instagram feed displays whole new range of exciting and fun side of Badrinath Ki Dulhania girl. From gorgeous, elaborate photo shoots to peppy take on life, Aakanksha’s account provides something new to look forward to.

1. A tinch of South


Aakanksha has bagged her maiden Telugu film, a romantic drama with the love story played out in three different time frames. The actress also threw light about her role in the film helmed by director Gautham, saying, “I play an urban Telugu girl who is very strong willed and independent yet has a vulnerability about her. She’s very real and has many layers to her personality. I have a significant role to play in the scheme of things”.

2. Perfect blend of desirable and elegance


The Jaipur-born actress has always been a perfect combination of traditional at heart and exhibit modern style with same panache. This picture of Aakanksha Singh where she is wearing hot shorts teamed up with crop top along with ethnic head jewellery gives it a much-appreciated edgy feel.
