This is exactly what happened, as it was announced earlier this year that the successful trio was set to collaborate for the second time on a new project.

Rashmika Mandanna has made the decision to walk out of the film with Nithiin and director Venky Kudumula. This is certainly sad news for the fans who were anticipating this combo’s return. 

Her decision to walk out of the film was a mutual one, which all parties concerned thought was the right decision. The actress backed out due to date issues. As she is working on multiple projects simultaneously, Rashmika could not allocate any dates for this film. The Kirik Party actress has been on a roll recently. She has been juggling between industries. Therefore, she could not fit the film into her already tight schedule. 


Rashmika also had a discussion with the production before proceeding with her decision to leave the film. Well, it is safe to say that this decision was an amicable one. Now, it has to be seen which actress takes the place of Rashmika in this film. 

On the professional front, Rashmika is anticipating the release of Pushpa 2: The Rule opposite Allu Arjun and Animal opposite Ranbir Kapoor. She has also committed to other films. Her immediate releases are highly anticipated films with huge stars. Rainbow, a bilingual film being made in Tamil and Telugu, is also a forthcoming film of hers.
