"we just have to accept it and move forward.”
Rashmika Mandanna has revealed what she thinks about people gossiping about her personal life.
Since making her film debut at the age of 20, Rashmika has had to learn how to live in the spotlight. But over time, she has realised that it has its negatives too.
Speaking about the negativity on social media that comes her way more often than one would like.
Rashmika explained: “At the end of the day, we are entertainers. We do films to entertain people. That is the core reason why we got into the creative field.
“It entirely depends on how the audience perceives your work.
“At the same time, it’s a little more than that because people are seeing us everywhere, people love us for who we are.
“That is the beauty of our generation.
“You do a good film, people applaud you. If you do a not-so-good film, people are like what did you do? Our life doesn’t stop at one film. It’s a journey.”
Rashmika has previously spoken about how the intense scrutiny affected her mental health.
“It just comes with the job. That’s all I can say. Ten years ago, this intense amount of paparazzi and social media wasn’t there.
“Back then, if people wanted to see stars, they went to the theatres, not to their homes. And now, it’s not like we can ignore this aspect because it is part of the scene today.
“We can’t keep it aside; we just have to accept it and move forward.”
Rashmika Mandanna made her Bollywood debut in 2022.
In 2023, she will have four releases in three languages – Varisu, Mission Majnu, Animal and Pushpa 2: The Rule.
But a lot of interest is on her personal life.
On whether it annoys her, Rashmika Mandanna said:
“We all became actors to be noticed so you can’t say ‘talk about only our work’.”
“It’s people’s perspective. We are public figures. We don’t have control over what you think about us. We can’t control your minds.
“But at the same time, it’s the love and the curiosity that you have around you that keeps you going.
“If people weren’t curious about you, nobody would talk about you. People talk because you are relatable today.
“So, whether it’s positive, negative, at the end of the day, at least, you spoke about me.”
