South actress Rashmika Mandanna was recently criticized and trolled for her recent comment about Kannada hit Kantara. Netizens share a video of Kantara director Rishab Shetty where he is seen trolling the Kirik Party actress.
Angry fans on social media trolled popular South actress Rashmika Mandanna after she denied watching Kantara yet even after the film got a positive response from notable actors like Prabhas, Dhanush, and Rajnikanth.
Her reaction came in after she was spotted at an airport recently, where the media asked her if she had watched the film. After she replied that she hasn’t so far, she was hit with a storm of comments, accusing her of not being respectful to her seniors and ‘forgetting her roots.’ Kantara director-ator Rishab Shetty directed her debut movie Kirik Party.
A fan wrote, “Yea never forget the person who bought u to the Industry and respect the language u debuted.#kannada #rakshithshetty.” Another one wrote, “If you can’t handle stardom and trolling (side effects of being famous) take up a 9 to 5 job. No one gives a sh*t about you there. We are hiring.”
Launched from an industry where 1 hero says "abhimanigale devru" & another says "producers gale namma annaDataru" here comes the biggest heroine of all time who couldn't even remember her 1st movie ✌production house✌

For the longest time, I’ve been told to ignore it. But it has only gotten worse. By addressing it, I’m not trying to win anyone over. I don’t want to feel closeted and forced to change as a human being because of this hate I keep receiving.”
