Vijay Deverakonda and Rashmika Mandanna starrer Geetha Govindam (2018) became a blockbuster with phenomenal collection at the worldwide box office. The Telugu star Vijay Deverakonda played the role of a young lecturer in a college, while Rashmika played the role of Geetha, who is a strong-headed and independent woman. Even after a year of its release, Geetha Govindam still remains one of the favourite romantic films for the moviegoers. Rashmika and Vijay's sizzling chemistry was one of the highlights in the film. But did you know not Rashmika but Rakul Preet Singh was offered the role of the female lead initially? 

Yes, in an exclusive conversation with Pinkvilla, Rakul Preet Singh revealed that she was approached for the female lead role in this Vijay Deverakonda starrer. However, she rejected it for the Hindi film, De De Pyaar De. As Rakul had already signed De De Pyaar De and could not adjust her dates for the shoot, she passed on the film and eventually, Rashmika Mandanna bagged the role. Rakul doesn't regret passing on this film but confessed that she wished to be a part of Geetha Govindam. Check out the video below.

Rakulpreet is not for Geetha Govindam. She make the right decision for the movie on behalf of producer

The chemistry of vijay devarkonda with rashmika is out of world means fabulous. They seem real lover in the movie.

It wld have been a disaster if rakul has done that role. The chemistry between Vijay- rashmika is fabulous n given a fresh feel for a new story. V loved both of them.

Thank God
.she rejected the role

Good. If rakul played in this role, then it won't be a blockbuster.

I love Rashmitha's pairing and for me, they are the best on-screen couple❤️❤️

Good that Rakul has rejected this movie, she would have been awful when compared to Rashmitha

Very True
