Rashmika Mandanna to star in Akhil Akkineni's next
Geetha Govindam producer Bunny Vaas will be producing this rom-com and will be directed by Bommarillu Bhaskar
Rashmika Mandanna's line-up of films has been keeping everybody on their toes. The 23-year-old actor is now busy shooting for Vijay Deverakonda-starrer Dear Comrade, which marks the directorial debut of Bharat Kamma. Produced by Mythri Movie Makers, the romantic political action drama will hit the screens simultaneously in Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Malayalam in June.
Even before wrapping up Dear Comrade, news about her signing a new film have been doing the rounds. A well-informed source said that Rashmika will be teaming up with Geetha Govindam producer Bunny Vaas for yet another rom-com starring Akhil Akkineni and directed by Bommarillu Bhaskar. "It's a strong female character that's more like a second skin to her portrayal in Geetha Govindam. Rashmika was pleased with the way Bhaskar has conceived the character with a great sense of fun and depth, and has agreed to be on board," reveals the source. Rashmika is also onboard Allu Arjun and Mahesh Babu's upcoming films.
