Back in 2020, Google declared Rashmika Mandanna as the ‘National Crush of India’. But now it looks like netizens have dethroned the Pushpa actress and have decided a ‘New National Crush’ of the country.
No more ‘National Crush’
One of the most happening actresses in the South industry, Rashmika Mandanna also enjoys a massive fan following across the country. Apart from her incredible acting skills, fans admire her bubbly nature and style statement. Back in 2020, the search giant Google declared the Pushpa actress as the ‘National Crush of India’ and she has been fondly associated with the same tag ever since.
Nevertheless, it looks like her hold on the title is slipping away and going toward some other actress. Why is that so? Well, the actress was spotted at an award show in Mumbai on Sunday night. Her outfit at the event has sparked negative reactions from social media users, who are now mercilessly trolling her.
The Twitter page of Telugu Film Nagar posted a video of Rashmika from Zee Cine Awards 2023 with the caption, “National crush #RashmikaMandanna gets papped in all black along with #SrinivasBellamkonda as they attend an event!!”

Several netizens took to the comments section with many calling for her to be removed from the ‘National Crush’ title. Some even went on to compare Rashmika’s outfit to that of Urfi Javed. One of the comments reads, “Urfi 2,” another social media user wrote, “That’s one absolutely horrendous outfit ever!!”

“She is not national crush… She is a national no one over acting candidate..” a third user commented. Another netizen wrote, “National crush kadhu national over actress annandi (Not National Crush, call her over actress).”
‘New National Crush’
Meanwhile, some went on to claim that Kiara Advani is the ‘New National Crush’. Last Saturday, Kiara performed at the opening ceremony of the Women’s Premier League. Soon after the event, the Kabir Singh actress shared a bunch of photographs on social media in which she is seen donning a sparkling pink shimmery outfit with a backless design.
Apart from her dazzling performance at the event, she stunned her fans with her latest looks. Amazed by the latest avatar of Kiara in the dazzling pink outfit, fans showered love and compliments on the actress. Some even called her the ‘New National Crush’.
The title 😭
She deserves itttt
