Rashmika Mandanna: Let me talk about my career..don’t go by rumours

The actor has been named as heroine for Darshan’s 51st film by producers Shylaja Nag and B Suresha

Published: 15th January 2018

A lot of chatter has been around, for the last few days, about the heroine of Darshan’s 51st, to be directed by Pon Kumar. Producers Shylaja Nag and Suresha B have made an official announcement that the role has gone to Rashmika Mandanna.

After a simple launch, held on the auspicious day of Sankranti, the production team announced through social media that Rashmika will be their heroine. The actor, for her part, chose to reveal details of the project only after the production team had. “Even I heard many rumours around it. The fact is the filmmakers directly approached me and had a meeting with me and confirmed. But I waited for them to announce.” 

Rashmika, who has been receiving a lot of appreciation for her role in Chamak, did previously get an opportunity to work with the Challenging Star in Tarak, but had to drop out of the project because she didn’t have dates free. She says that she met the star for the first time at the launch event. “I am indeed excited and look forward to working with Darshan,” she says.

While this will be her fourth film in Kannada, the actor is also looking forward to the release of her Telugu debut Chalo, for which the shooting is on with Vijay Devarakonda. She says that she has not signed on for any other Telugu film.

“Everyday, I hear news about me working on some film with some hero. The last I heard was that I am working with Ram and that I will be part of a remake of Chamak in Telugu. There was also a rumour that I will not be working from next year. But none of these are true. With every project I am in, I wait for the production house to announce it because they are the right people to do that. I would be happy if people patiently wait to hear from me about my career, since that would be the clearest picture,” she says.
