News of Naga Chaitanya collaborating with Sarkaru Vaari Paata directed Parasuram has been making rounds for a while now. While the official announcement hasn’t been made, it is speculated that the director and the actor are currently in talks for the same. As an update to this buzz, reportedly Rashmika Mandanna is also in the talks to play the lead opposite Naga Chaitanya in the film. However, none of these are official announcements.
Rashmika has already played a lead in Parasuram’s Sarkaaru Vaari Paata, making this her second collaboration with him, if it happens. However, if these reports are to be believed, this is the first time we will be seeing Naga Chaitanya and Rashmika play a duo onscreen.
Rashmika is shooting for Animal with Ranbir Kapoor and Varisu with Vijay. She is also working on the sequel of Pushpa titled, Pushpa: The Rule. Mission Majnu will mark Rashmika’s Hindi debut, where she is co-starring with Siddarth Malhotra. Goodbye on the other hand is a comedy drama starring Amitabh Bachchan along with Rashmika. There is also a report that Rashmika is all set to co-star with Vicky Kaushal in an upcoming project.
