Is Rashmika replaced Samantha?

Actor Rahul Ravindran made his directorial debut with the film, “Chi La Sow,” and it became a big hit at the box office. Later, Nagarjuna offered a chance to Rahul for “Manmadhudu 2” but it did not fare well at the box office and faced criticism for its content and presentation. As a result, Rahul faced a setback in his career. However, he is now coming back with another directorial.

Rashmika Mandanna has been impressed with the female-oriented script that Rahul has presented. Allu Arvind and Bunny Vaas will jointly produce the project under the Geetha Arts 2 banner. Although an official announcement is pending, it is considered a done deal.

Originally, the film was planned with Samantha, and her friendship with Rahul Ravindran’s wife, Chinmayi played a role in this collaboration. However, Samantha had to step back from the project due to her illness and subsequent treatment.

Rashmika Mandanna, already playing the title role in the movie “Butterfly Fly,” will now be part of this film. At the same time, Rashmika also pins big hopes on her next two pan-India films “Animal” and “Pushpa: The Rule.”
