EXCLUSIVE: “I have no idea why this started and from where this started,” says Rashmika Mandanna on being called National crush

The gorgeous and talented actress who is also fondly and commonly called the 'National Crush' got into an exclusive interview with Bollywood Hungama. In the conversation, she reacted upon being called the 'National Crush' and also talked about her journey so far.

Reacting to the title she has got by the people the actress said, "I think that's for people to let me know because I have no idea why this started and from where this started. But, initially, I was called the 'Karnatka crush' and from there it came to the national crush. I don't know what that actually means but here I am."

Talking about her journey she stated, "As in I know in these 5 years, I haven't been able to go home back to Coorg for more than a week which was in the lockdown. So, the lockdown was the only break I got. But, I think why I've done so many films across the industries in just five years that I've been just working. One after the other projects kept coming. For me, the story or the script is the most important, that's like the hero of the film for me. So, I think people across the nation just watch films from everywhere now."

She added, "When they saw my debut in Kannada, my Tamil director who's also my really close friend he got me on the board for a Telugu film. I had no idea of a word of Telugu back then. So, in my first film, I was literally crying that I can't do this, this is too hard for me. But yeah, after that Tamil happened. After that watching one of my films Shantanu Sir got me on board for Mission Majnu. So, one after the other it just happened."
