Talking to a leading daily about her experience in acting and films, Rashmika said,” It’s overwhelming. The dream was always to be busy and now I shoot day and night. Since I have never acted before, whatever character I take up is different and new for me. I am going with the flow. There’s no pressure. But I’m excited about watching myself on screen; it gives me a high. I entered the industry with apprehensions but things worked out fine.”
Rashmika is making her debut in Telugu cinema in a film alongside Naga Shaurya, which is yet to be titled. ” The team went out of their way to make me feel comfortable. Now that I am not shooting for the film, I actually miss Hyderabad because of the love and affection they showed.”
Rashmika also opened up about her personal life and getting engaged to her Kirik Party co-star Rakshit Shetty. ” There wasn’t anything between us really. But there came a point when more than our work, people talked about us. In fact, it was our families who suggested that we take this forward because it was just becoming an unnecessary ordeal. Well, the families are happy and it’s great for us too because now we can go about our work without all the pressure.”
