Rashmika Mandanna talks about 'Bheeshma', which releases on 21st February, being single, Allu Arjun-Sukumar movie and more in this interview.
While I was dubbing for my role in 'Bheeshma', I enjoyed the film. I felt it is a very cute film and the chemistry between Nithiin and I is very good. The songs are also very good. It will be like a visual treat. Audiences will also enjoy it for sure. I am excited for the release.
Nithin has got engaged now and the 'Single Forever' tagline is apt for me. I said to director Venky that the tagline is apt for both of us.
You can expect very good entertainment from 'Bheeshma'. But I can't judge my movie. I played a character named Chaitra. It's a nice character. She works in Bheeshma organics. I can't assure what you can expect from my character. But it will be a laugh-riot. I am sure that my acting, dancing and singing skills will get recognized after this movie releases.
Venky discussed about organic farming in a very subtle way. There will not be any lectures about that. 'Bheeshma' is not a story about organic farming. It's just a part in his journey. When the director narrated the story to me, he said there will be an underlying message about organic message about organic film but it is primarily a fun movie. I also felt the same when I was dubbing. Farming is a sensitive topic and the director dealt it a way that appeals to the audiences.
Pawan Kalyan fan
When I watched Nithin and Samantha in 'A Aa', I felt I should be a part of such a movie when I enter the industry. They acted so well in that movie. When I got a chance to work with Nithiin, I was apprehensive about whether he will be a good co-star to work with as he is a senior to me. But he is a very cool person. He is like a college goer, who loves spending time with his phone and having fun conversations. He is very comfortable to work with. We've become like collegemates.
During a discussion, Nithiin said that he has been a die-hard fan of Pawan Kalyan since his childhood. It's good to see that he is still a fan boy even after becoming an actor.
Nithiin Love Story
I got to know about Nithiin's love story only two days before his engagement. He hasn't discussed about it with me till then.
I have been doing films which I like and I've never thought about the 'luck factor' in my career. I've always selected roles that are close to my heart and which are strong. I always looking for freshness in roles. I experiment with my roles. I want audiences to feel that they have watched a good film. Whether they should get emotional or laugh out loud. 'Bheeshma' falls in the second category. I couldn't stop laughing when I was watching the film while I was dubbing.
Boring Valentine's day
I went to Gym and prepared for a busy day on 14th February. But the works were cancelled and I felt very bored. I've never experienced such a boring Valentine's day.
Allu Arjun-Sukumar film
I will join the shoot of Allu Arjun - Sukumar film in March. You will all see a different Rashmika in that movie.
