The Kodaya girl, Rashmika Mandanna became the talk of the town for all the right reasons when Geetha Govindam opened to a phenomenal response at the box office and emerged as a runaway hit. The film, released on 15th August, saw the Kodava girl act opposite Vijay Deverakonda and win hearts with her innocent yet naughty on-screen antics. Thereafter, she made an impact in Devadas even though the movie did not perform well at the box office. With her career shaping her quite well, Rashmika is in the news for an unexpected reason.
In a recent interview, the actress spoke about her Geetha Govindam days and made a rather surprising revelation about director Parasuram. Speaking about a funny incident, Rashmika said that he (Parsuram) once pulled a prank on her which reduced her to tears.
According to the source, "One day, she was a little late on the sets of Geetha Govindam. When she reached on the sets. No one talked to her and embarrassed her. She was not able to understand what was happening on the sets, she sat down and started crying. Later Parasuram came to her and told that it was just a prank and they did it to capture her natural sad expressions," she said.
On the work front, Rashmika is currently awaiting the release of Dear Comrade directed by Bharat Kamma, which marks her second collaboration with Vijay Deverakonda. The film has already created a great deal of buzz amongst fans due to its gripping teaser and this might help it emerge as a hit when it eventually releases in theatres. Rashmika also has the Kannada movie Pogaru in her kitty.
