For actress Rakul Preet Singh, the mango season has begun. On Instagram, the actress announced the arrival of the much-awaited season with a big smile and a glass of fresh mango juice. For a lot of people, there’s no substitute for mango, the king of fruits, as a coolant during the scorching summer months in the Indian sub-continent. And the temperature has already started to rise in many parts of the country. Like most of us, Rakul Preet knows the benefits of consuming mangoes in summer. She captioned the posy, “Mango season is here.”
Rakul Preet Singh is an absolute foodie, and a few weeks ago when she was in the Maldives, she gave us a glimpse of her vacation that included some great food. The actress shared an image of her lavish breakfast that was served in a drawer in a private pool, complete with a stunning view of the ocean. Take a look at her Maldives’ food diaries here.
She had shared a video a few months ago of herself getting gifts on set, which included granola bars, chocolates, coconut water, ginger tea, sugar-free cookies, and dried apricots, among other things. In the video, she left a message to express gratitude for the healthy snack-filled gift. Read more about it here.
