The ‘OG National Crush’ Rashmika Mandanna needs no introduction. Ever since her debut in the 2016 superhit movie ‘Kirik Party’, the bubbly actress with no godfather in the industry has come a long way and carved a niche for herself.

After winning hearts in South movies, her portrayal of ‘Srivalli’ in Allu Arjun’s Pushpa: The Rise catapulted her to fame. With stupendous performances in films like Dear Comrade, Geetha Govindam, Animal, and Chalo, she has now earned a widespread fanbase across the nation.

As the gorgeous beauty turned a year older today and celebrates her 28th birthday, let’s take a look into her personal life as Rashmika had to deal with her fair share of personal lows. Not many know that she was engaged to her co-star and ‘Kirik Party’ actor Rakshit Shetty, popularly known for ‘777 Charlie’ movie.

Love blossomed between the two during Rashmika’s debut movie ‘Kirik Party’ and the two lovebirds were engaged for a while. They were all set to get married, but the ‘Animal’ actress reportedly called off the engagement as she wanted to concentrate on her career ardently, TOI reported.

She was getting good offers from Tollywood and wanted to concentrate on her career. So, she decided to call off the marriage after consulting with her family, close friends, and Rakshit. This led to Kannada fans brutally trolling the actress.

There was a time when Kannadigas called for boycotting her for leaving Rakshit Shetty, who is believed to have launched her in his film ‘Kirik Party’. 

The movie was a huge hit that catapulted Rashmika’s career. However, Rashmika left Rakshit after getting good offers.
The actress had to go through a lot of trolling until Rakshit came to her defense and assured fans that their breakup was mutual. 

The two actors still share a good camaraderie and are good friends. Later, Rashmika is rumoured to have found love in her ‘Geetha Govindam’ star Vijay Deverakonda. However, the two stars have remained tight-lipped about their relationship status. 

As the actress celebrates her birthday, all her fans wish she does more films and keeps everyone entertained.
