After tasting success in 'Kirik Party', Rashmika Mandanna is all set for her Tollywood debut staring alongside the industry's notable talent Vijay Dev
After tasting success in ‘Kirik Party’, Rashmika Mandanna is all set for her Tollywood debut staring alongside the industry’s notable talent Vijay Devarakonda.
The established protagonist and the in-demand debutant lead lady make a good team for Parasuram’s romantic potboiler. The movie is near complete but still remains untitled. Deverakonda is yet to join the team in a full fledged manner. He is currently riding high on the massive success of ‘ Arjun Reddy’, which received critical and commercial claim in equal measure. The actor recently wrapped up a film’s shoot and also has two more in his lineup now. The latest reports from the filmnagar reveals us that Vijay Devarakonda will be staring in a new flick to be directed by Rahul Sankirtyan who earlier directed the movie named The End.
Lavanya Tripathi was to cast opposite Deverakonda. But the Maayavan famer eventually walked out of the film even before it went on the floors due to unknown reasons. This paved way for Rashmika , to star in a movie presented by Allu Arjun. Even though Rashmika was in talks for a few Telugu projects, this film will mark her foray into the industry. In Kannada, Rashmika is busy with “Anjani Putra” and “Chamak”. She is with Rakshit Shetty, her co-star from ‘Kirik party’. Their engagement was earlier this year.
The makers announced Rashmika as the heroine via a statement.
An elated Rashmika tweeted: “Happy to sign the film with Vijay Devarakonda in Parasuram’s direction. Thanks to producers Allu Aravind and Bunny Vas.”
Geetha Arts 2 and UV Creations will handle production in a joint venture. The film unit is busy with the final patch work and a week’s shoot is balance. They have not revealed the complete cast and crew details. A formal announcement on the project will be out soon.
