There’s something special about being named Kaveri in Yajamana: Rashmika Mandanna

The actor talks about her experience shooting for the Darshan-starrer, and how her onscreen name is extra special to her

Published: 21st January 2019

The ‘Saanvi’ girl in Kirik Party will soon be known as ‘Kaveri’, her screen name in Yajamana. And this name is particularly special for Rashmika Mandanna who hails from the Kodagu region. “One of the first things I did when I started shooting was to find out my screen name. I was so glad to know it was Kaveri. As soon as I heard it, I said it sounds nice. It is quite interesting and I wonder how people will react to it,” the actor says, adding, “This (Kodagu district) is my home and I got a name from my home.”

There’s more cause for cheer for Rashmika, who will be seen opposite Darshan in Yajamana, as the second song from the film, Ondu Munjane, which was released on Saturday, has been ruling the charts ever since. With Sonu Nigam and Shreya Ghoshal lending their voices to the track, the song has captured the attention of fans on social media.

In between her busy schedule, Rashmika has been listening to the song on loop. She recalls how she cannot forget shooting for this particular track shot in freezing conditions (-2 degrees Celsius).  “I was shivering when I shot this song in Sweden. I believe that hard work will pay off, and now, I am glad to see the audience liking the song,” she says.

Yajamana directed by V Harikrishna will be Rashmika's first release of the year.
