The couple, however, have remained good friends ever since. On Rashmika’s birthday, Rakshit Shetty posted a rather thoughtful tweet of her from her Kannada film Kirik Party. “Sharing this beautiful memory of yours from the @KirikParty audition. You have travelled so far since then, chasing you’r dreams like a real worrier. Proud of you girl and Happy Birthday to you. May you see more success,” he wrote as he shared this video.

Post their very public breakup in 2018, Rashmika had also taken it to social media to talk about her relationship after she was mercilessly trolled by the actor’s fans for her private decisions. She stated, “Sorry I’ve been silent for so long..but I’ve been watching a lot of stories, articles, comments, and trolls about me..it has been disturbing me on how I was being portrayed and everything blew out of proportion and yes I definitely don’t blame you guys for it..because that’s what you’d believe and I am not here to justify anything or anyone..just want to tell you guys that Rakshit, me or anyone in the industry should not go through this. And also need to add that just as how every coin has two sides, so does every story. Please let us who work in our industry, work with a little peace of mind. That’s my two cents, let me conclude by saying I will CONTINUE DOING KANNADA FILMS… I AM HERE TO STAY.. be it any language, any industry, I’ll give my best shot.. thank you.”
