Rashmika Mandanna is all pepped up to hit the sets of her latest venture, ‘Good Bye’ and she will let go of her birthday ritual too for it! “My birthday ritual is that I generally take a day off and relive all the moments of the year but this time I will be celebrating on the sets of ‘Good Bye’. Let’s see how that goes as it’s the first time that I’m doing it,” Rashmika tells.
The actress is excited to share the frame with the stalwart Amitabh Bachchan, whom she met for the first time during the reading of the film. “While meeting Bachchan sir, of course, I was nervous! People love him for who he is and so do I! The whole team was there; we were interacting with Bachchan sir, doing the reading, which made me more comfortable. He makes you feel at home, warm and comfortable.”
Rashmika marked her acting debut with the Kannada movie ‘Kirik Party’, which was a huge hit. She further shot to fame with her Telugu debut film ‘Chalo’ and now she is gearing up to earn some big bucks in Bollywood. When asked about the experience of working in the different cinematic parallels, Rashmika shares, “Each team works differently because all of us are here to narrate stories. In the South, if you work in the same industry, you have a totally different approach by teams.”
Living her dream, Rashmika is enjoying every minute of her journey on the silver screen. “I never wanted films or storytellers to have boundaries and all our boundaries are getting broken now because of films that have come out pan-India and released on OTT. People are appreciating all the work, all over the nation. And I’m really grateful for all the work that I’m doing, being the characters that I get to create and play. I just like it when I can go anywhere, speak in any language, and do everything without planning,” concludes the actress.
