Rashmika Mandanna, who was last seen in the Hindi spy thriller ‘Mission Majnu’ (2023), will next be seen in Allu Arjun-starrer ‘Pushpa 2’. However, in rather disheartening news, the actress has been reportedly cheated of Rs 80 lakh by none other than her long-time manager, who has since been fired.
As per a recent report, upon learning about the incident, Rashmika Mandanna immediately fired her manager, who had been with her from the very beginning of her career. While the report in Pinkvilla mentioned that the manager cheated Rashmika, the actress is yet to comment on the incident.
“There is some chatter about Rashmika being duped of ₹80 lakh by her manager. Apparently, she didn’t want to create a scene about it. Therefore, she dealt with it on her own by firing her manager,” the entertainment portal quoted a source as saying.
As for Rashmika’s upcoming projects, they include ‘Animal’, which is directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga and also stars Ranbir Kapoor, Anil Kapoor and Bobby Deol. The film will hit the theatres on August 11. She also has ‘Pushpa: The Rule’, the second part in the franchise, in the pipeline. It is directed by Sukumar and features Allu Arjun in the lead.
The film will reportedly focus on the face-off between Allu Arjun and Fahadh Faasil, who was introduced as the prime antagonist in the first part. While it was originally shot in Telugu, the film was dubbed and released in Hindi, Tamil, Malayalam, and Kannada. The film also collected Rs 300 crore worldwide.
