One of the busiest actresses in South Indian film, Rashmika Mandanna, is now enjoying a successful run with a number of highly anticipated movies. The vivacious actress plans to start out 2023 strong with her big project Varisu. Rashmika and Thalapathy Vijay work together for the first time in the film, which is billed as a family comedy. The actress has just made her debut in Bollywood with the family drama Goodbye, which starred the legendary Amitabh Bachchan.
Rashmika Mandanna, meantime, was recently seen in front of Bollywood master craftsman Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s office. She wore a casual yellow suit and looked lovely with minimal makeup and unstyled hair.

Now, rumour has it that the actress, who intends to work in both the South and Bollywood sectors moving forward, may have another Bollywood feature in the works. Official verification of these stories have not yet been made, nevertheless.
Rashmika Mandanna’s upcoming film in the South, Varisu, is directed by Vamshi Paidipally and is Thalapathy Vijay’s first direct foray into Telugu cinema. The supposedly multilingual Tamil-Telugu film is expected to be released in theatres during the Pongal season of 2023.

The Varisu actress’s first Bollywood film, Goodbye, which also starred seasoned actors like Amitabh Bachchan and Neena Gupta and included her in a major part, received generally favourable reviews from the public. The Vikas Bahl-directed film, however, did not perform well at the box office, as was predicted.

The film, which stars Siddharth Malhotra in the title role, will debut on Netflix. Rashmika Mandanna will play a girl who is blind in the Shantanu Bhagchi-directed film.
