The first look of the film was unveiled a few months ago and it took social media by storm. It was being reported that the film is being a Kannada remake of Alia Bhatt’s hit movie Raazi. However, nothing such has been officially confirmed.
On a personal front, while Rashmika Mandanna is getting some interesting Telugu films, her break-up with Rakshit Shetty is quite in the news.
Rakshit recently issued a statement about his failed engagement with Rashmika Mandanna. He wrote, “You all have formed opinions about Rashmika. I don’t blame any of you because that’s how it is projected. I have known Rashmika for more than two years and I have known her better than any of you. There are many factors that are acting here. Please stop judging her. Please let her be in peace.”
Rashmika Mandanna and Rakshit Shetty fell in love with each other on the sets of Kirik Party. The two got engaged on July 3, 2017, and celebrated one year of engagement a couple of months ago.
