Rashmika Mandanna sends love to fans for supporting her after dropping a post about receiving ‘hate’ on social media.
Rashmika thanks fans
Rashmika Mandanna recently penned a long note about receiving online hate and becoming a ‘punching bag for trolls.’ Now, the actress has responded to the love and support coming her way from fans after that post.
Taking to her Instagram handle, Rashmika dropped a selfie in which she can be seen flashing the heart finger sign and wrote, ‘Sending my love to anyone who needs it out there. And I’ve been seeing and receiving so many messages and it’s made me feel warm inside. Means a lot. Thank you, big love.’
It looks like Rashmika’s fans were upset with her as she had not watched Rishab Shetty’s film. A part of her note addressing the trolling read, “I have been on the receiving end of a lot of hate ever since I started my career. Quite literally a punching bag for a lot of trolls and negativity out there. I know that the life I’ve chosen comes with a price – I understand that I’m not everyone’s cup of tea and certainly don’t expect to be loved by every single person out there. That doesn’t mean because you don’t approve of me you can spew negativity instead.”
Forgetting her roots
Rishab was the one who launched Rashmika with his 2016 film Kirik Party. Fans had claimed that after experiencing professional success, the 26-year-old has ‘forgotten her roots.
Rashmika’s Instagram message further reads, “Only I know the kind of work I put in, day in and day out to make you all happy. The happiness you feel from the work I put out is what I care about most. I really am trying the best I can to put out things that both you and I are proud of. It’s heartbreaking and frankly quite demoralizing when I’m being ridiculed and mocked by the internet, especially for things that I HAVE NOT SAID.”
On the work front, Rashmika recently made her Bollywood debut with the film Goodbye, also starring Amitabh Bachchan. She also has films such as Pushpa: The Rule along with Allu Arjun, and Varisu with Thalapathy Vijay in the pipeline. Her Bollywood line-up includes Mission Majnu with Sidharth Malhotra and Animal with Ranbir Kapoor.
