On the work front

Rashmika Mandanna is set to appear in several upcoming projects, including The Girlfriend, Pushpa 2, and Sikandar.

The Girlfriend is a Telugu romantic drama directed by Rahul Ravindran, known for Chi La Sow, and stars Rashmika Mandanna alongside Dheekshith Shetty. The film's music is by Hesham Abdul Wahab, cinematography by Krishnan Vasant, and is produced by Vidya Koppineedi and Dheeraj Mogilineni.

Fans were recently disappointed by the news of Pushpa 2's new release date, as it was initially slated for an Independence Day premiere. The mass action drama is now set to hit theaters on December 6, clashing with Vicky Kaushal's historical drama, Chhaava. 

Notably, Rashmika Mandanna plays the female lead in both films, making this box-office clash particularly exciting for cinephiles.

Additionally, Mandanna is teaming up with Bollywood superstar Salman Khan for the first time in AR Murugadoss's Sikandar. This big-budget film, produced by Sajid Nadiadwala, has created a buzz with its high-profile collaborations.


Filming for Sikandar reportedly began on June 18, with a viral video from the set circulating on social media. The film is scheduled for a big-screen release on Eid 2025.
