Young and charming beauty Rashmika Mandanna made her debut with a Kannada film titled 'Kirik Party'. Her cuteness attracted the youth of South India and she got a lot of following thanks to her adorable looks. After working in a couple of big-ticket Kannada films, Rashmika made her debut in Tollywood with 'Chalo' and went onto act in super hit films like 'Geetha Govindham', 'Sarileru Neeevvaru', 'Bheeshma' and others. She is currently working on Allu Arjun's 'Pushpa' which is a pan-Indian film.
After attaining star status in Tollywood, the Kannada girl's focus has shifted onto Bollywood. Rashmika accepted two Hindi projects named 'Mission Majnu' and 'Goodbye'. She is busy with these projects and in order to stop shuttling between the cities, she reportedly rented a flat in Mumbai. She is aiming to reach the top spot in the Hindi film industry and is working out strategies to make it possible. Rashmika is trying hard to leave her girl-next-door image and get a glamorous heroine image. She looked quite titillating in her 'Top Tucker' video song with Baadshah.
Rashmika is not the first heroine to hail from Karnataka and make her mark in Bollywood. Former Miss World Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is a Kannadiga who started her career in the South movies and quickly moved to Bollywood. We all know the level of stardom she achieved there. Aishwarya Rai ruled Bollywood for a lot of years by acting with all the big stars and stayed on top even after her marriage.
Another Kannada girl who is slaying it in Bollywood is Deepika Padukone. She made her entry n 2007 with SRK's 'Om Shanti Om' and even after 14 years, Deepika Padukone is still in the top spot and gets the highest remuneration among the actresses in Bollywood. She is still working on many big projects and she got married to crazy hero Ranveer Singh.
Insiders reveal that Rashmika is taking a leaf out of these two big actresses and planning to achieve similar heights. She is already attracting the paparazzi with her glamorous public appearances and keeping the buzz alive on social media. She may get busier once her two Hindi films get released and become big hits.
