It is without a doubt that Rashmika Mandanna is one of the busiest actresses in the country right now. She is waltzing her way through Bollywood, Tollywood and Kollywood. She recently scored a hit in Tamil with ‘Varisu’. Her spy thriller ‘Mission Majnu’ featuring Siddharth Malhotra in the lead was currently streaming on Netflix.
Amidst all the controversy surrounding her comments, Rashmika has stayed strong despite all the hatred. As it is known, the ‘Chalo’ actress creates a huge debate whenever she holds a mic. Apart from that, she is trolled on a lot of occasions. It is safe to say that Rashmika is the most trolled and criticised actress in recent times.
Speaking about all the hatred, the ‘Geetha Govindham’ beauty said, “I don’t understand why so many people spread so much hate. They say I look like a boy if I work out more, and if I work out less, they call me fat. If I’m talkative they’ll call me cringe, and if I’m silent, they say it’s attitude. Simply put, they hate me even if I breathe.”
Talking about her glam doll role in ‘Varisu’ which had no substance, Rashmika said, “I think this was my choice to do the film and I knew that I literally had two songs and I had to kill it in those two songs. This was actually an inside joke and I used to go to Vijay sir and say ‘I have nothing to do except the two songs.’ This was a conscious decision and I wanted to be a part of the film because I wanted to work with Vijay sir because I have admired him for the longest time. For me, as an actor, it’s about going to the set and learning the little things from the people you are working with.”
She added, “I wanted to be a part of this film even if I didn’t have anything. And me as an actor I want to be ok doing everything. I want to be a part of the commercial entertainers. I am ok with it and I don’t want to be a typecast.”
Rashmika is currently working on the pan-Indian project ‘Pushpa: The Rule’ and she is also the heroine in Sandeep Reddy Vanga and Ranbir Kapoor’s ‘Animal’ which will come out in August.
