Rashmika Mandanna joins 100 crore club with Geetha Govindam
The actor now wants to complete Devdas, her third film in Telugu after which she will get back to the sets of Dear Comrade, her second with Vijay
It is a proud moment for Rashmika Mandanna, who has made her way into the ‘100 crore club’ with her second Telugu film, Geetha Govindam. The film directed by Parasuram has her paired opposite Vijay Devarakonda. “The effort I put in over the last seven months has paid off. I have never been a money-minded person and have only worked for the love of cinema. So, making it to the 100 crore club is yet to sink in. Right now, I am glad that my performance has been recognised and appreciated. At the end of the day, that’s what counts,” she says.
As Rashmika’s brand value has shot up overnight, speculations are rife about her remuneration. “When your film is a hit, it’s only natural that your remuneration also goes up. More money is offered only if filmmakers think we are worth the price they have to pay. And that’s a big motivator. However, having said that, I am here in the industry to do good films,” she says.
Rashmika now wants to complete Devdas, her third film in Telugu after which she will get back to the set of Dear Comrade, her second project with Vijay. “I liked the concept of Devdas, and that’s why I accepted it irrespective of the screen time I’m getting,” says the actor.
In addition, she is also shooting for the Kannada film, Yajamana. “We have a couple of songs to be shot. Meanwhile, I am reading a few scripts, and want to choose the best among them,” she says.
The actor puts an end to speculations about her receiving several offers from Kollywood and Bollywood by confirming that it is, in fact, true. “You have heard right. As for Kollywood, there are a few projects for which I have been approached. But since it will be my debut in Tamil, I want to choose one with the right content,” says Rashmika, adding, “I have also been getting Bollywood offers, but then again, the script matters.”
