EXCLUSIVE: Rashmika Mandanna reveals why she was once scared of her now best friend Vijay Deverakonda!

How hilarious!

Born in the small town of Madikeri in Karnataka, Rashmika had a simple upbringing. Her parents, not being ready to send their daughter to the big city, let her pursue her high school in Mysore, before moving to Bangalore to pursue her undergraduate degree in psychology, journalism, and literature. Two weeks into college, one of Rashmika’s friends signed her name up for the Fresh Face Bangalore competition. Rashmika, who was completely unaware of what she was getting into, didn’t have a clue about what the competition was all about and found out that her name was enrolled only a day before. However, she went for it.

From Geetha Govindham to Sarilerru Neevvaru, Rashmika has been unstoppable. However, fans are eagerly awaiting the arrival of this young talent into Kollywood. While we are not aware of the release date of her next with Karthi, the rumours were rife that Rashmika would very much be a part of Vijay’s film with Atlee. However, the actress had earlier stated, “A lot of you have been asking me if I am a part of Vijay sir’s and Atlee sir’s film but since that’s not happening this time I hope I get to work with them soon. I am so overwhelmed (like literally) to see such support from all of you.”

In a throwback interview with TNM, Rashmika stated that she was once afraid with her co-star Vijay Devorkonda. “Nothing has changed. I was scared when I first shot with him as I’m scared of new people. But then, Vijay is a very chill fellow and I found it easy to work with him. Shooting for this film was easier as I knew his frequency, his vibe and it was easy to match up to it – I didn’t even have to try as we’ve been friends for quite a long time now. Our characters rub off on each other and the best part about our friendship is that I don’t have to try hard to understand the guy.”

Although Rashmika hasn’t entered Kollywood yet, she already has a large fanbase. There are still speculations about her Kollywood debut and as we await an official confirmation. During one of the press interviews, the actress was asked about what she would look for in a man and this is what she said:

“It doesn’t matter if he is an introvert or an extrovert, he has to be a genuinely nice person and I should like his vibe. I should feel the need to spend more time with him, I must enjoy it.” She further added that he should be a romantic person and that an age-gap wouldn’t matter to her.

On the professional front Rashmika Mandanna is still narrowing down on her Kollywood debut, while it is reported that she is all set to make her debut in Tamil alongside Karthi in Sultaan. Rashmika also has Allu Arjun’s Pushpa in Tollywood after two hits Sarrileru Neekevvaru and Bheeshma!
