Mumbai: Rashmika Mandanna, more commonly known as the national crush has in a recent interview with an leading entertainment portal opened up about her Bollywood debut and the two projects she has on cards.
She shared, “Honestly, Dear Comrade gave us a lot of audience from the North. A lot of my fans or well-wishes have been telling me that I should do a Hindi film. But I felt it was too fast of a journey and it was going to take a couple of years for me to go to Bollywood. Mission Majnu happened during the first lockdown when I got a call from my manager about a Hindi film.”
The actress will be debuting in Bollywood with Mission Majnu, in a lead role beside Sidharth Malhotra. She added, “I heard the script and I think it was a film that I had to do in the initial part of my career. So, I felt it was the right film. Mission Majnu and Goodbye are completely different genres. I was happy that both of them were coming out because the audience can know that I can do both kinds of films.”
On her second project, Goodbye alongside Amitabh Bachchan, she said, “With Goodbye, I read the script. If I can read a 150-page script in an hour and a half or something, it’s a go because that’s not normal. I usually take a few days. I felt I was the character. So, they just happened.”
Rashmika’s upcoming films, Mission Majnu and Goodbye are much awaited and the actress is also shooting for her next much-anticipated film, Pushpa.
