While many fans were shocked when she rejected this big opportunity, others were curious to know the reason behind her refusal. Recently, clearing the air of speculations Rashmika revealed the reason, “I got that opportunity because of the choices I have made till now. I don’t think this choice is going to go bad. Jersey needs a lot of you. It is almost realistic. Right now, only doing commercial films, I am going insane. Imagine doing something like Jersey and not being able to pull it off.”

Rashmika Mandanna also added, “If I am part of a film, it has to be because I need to give in to the film. I will not accept any project to which I feel I can’t give a lot. The Jersey remake was huge. Anyone would do it but then I don’t want to come to set and be all tired. I feel they (film’s makers) deserve more. Someone who can give in energy.”

Currently, Rashmika Mandanna is gearing up for the release of her Tamil debut opposite Karthi in Sultan. She is also playing the leading lady opposite Stylish star Allu Arjun in Sukumar’s film, Pushpa.
