"It's got people talking."
The 16th edition of the Indian Premier League has kicked off and fans got a chance to see a stellar show by various celebrities at the opening ceremony held at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.
One of the performances was by the nation’s sweetheart Rashmika Mandanna.
Rashmika danced to the Oscar-winning song ‘Naatu Naatu’ from RRR and the video of her dance is going viral on social media.
The video was posted on the official Instagram account of the Indian Premier League.
The caption read: “@rashmika_mandanna gets the crowd going with an energetic performance.”
The video shows the actor performing the song.
Since the video was shared, it has accumulated over 3.6 million likes and the numbers are only increasing.
Meanwhile, many have shared the video which has received close to 900,000 likes, including one from cricketer Yuzvendra Chahal.
People have been flooding the comments section reacting to the video.
One Instagram user wrote: “Our queen.”
Another said: “IPL started nacho nacho.”
Another user commented, “Rashmika’s performance!” along with a heart emoji.
Several others too showed their reactions through heart emojis.
Further, Rashmika Mandanna also danced to the popular dance number ‘Saami Saami’.
She performed ‘Saami Saami’ just a few days after she said that she is tired of performing the iconic song from the super-hit Telugu film Pushpa.
Rashmika even denied a fan’s request to perform the ‘Saami Saami’ dance step.
A fan tweeted: “I want to do dance with you in “Saami-Saami”………… May I ???????”
To this, Rashmika Mandanna replied: “I’ve done saami saami step tooooo many times.. that now I feel like I’ll have issues with my back when I get older…
“Why you do this to me re.. let’s do something else when me meet.”
Meanwhile, rumours are doing the rounds that something is brewing between Rashmika Mandanna and Chatrapathi actor Bellamkonda Sri Sreenivas, who is set to make his Bollywood debut soon.
According to a source from the industry: “Rashmika and Bellamkonda Sai Sreenivas is often making public appearances these days. It’s got people talking.
“But the truth is, both Rashmika and Sreenivas are really fond of each other.”
The speculations have been fuelled by their public appearances.
Rashmika Mandanna and Bellamkonda Sai Sreenivas were recently spotted together at the Mumbai airport and were happily posing for the shutterbugs.
They also graced the red carpet of a popular award function that took place recently, where they were captured again.
On the work front, Rashmika Mandanna will be seen alongside Ranbir Kapoor in Animal.
