With star heroines like Anushka Shetty and Samantha restricting themselves to female-centric films, the top heroine spot is up for grabs. While dusky siren Pooja Hegde is the front-runner in this race, actresses like Rashmika Mandanna and Raashi Khanna are getting closer to her.
North beauty Raashi Khanna and Bengaluru girl Rashmika are competing with each other with two releases each in a span of two months. In December, Raashi is coming with Sai Dharam's 'Prathi Roju Bandage' while Rashmika is arriving with Nithins 'Bheeshma' Both these films are coming with decent buzz and we need to see which of these two heroines wins the December race.
After that, they will compete again during the Sankranti season. As we know, Mahesh Babu's 'Sarileru Neekevvaru' is releasing on 12th January and Rashmika is the female lead in this film. This is the first time, she is pairing up with a star hero and she pinned a lot of hopes on this action entertainer. On the other hand, Raashi Khanna will be seen romancing Naga Chaitanya in multi-starrer 'Venky Mama' which is planning to have a Sankranti release.
Interestingly both these heroines scored flops with their last film. While Raashi Khanna's 'Srinivasa Kalyanam' was a disaster, Rashmika's 'Dear Comrade' failed to please the viewers. So, let us see who wins this competition and leaves the other behind.
