“I’ve done Saami Saami step too many times"
Rashmika Mandanna has stated that she will no longer be performing the ‘Saami Saami’ dance step in public.
The actress became a household name after the release of Pushpa: The Rise.
In the film’s song ‘Saami Saami’, Rashmika mesmerised fans with her swaying hips.
As a result, there has been a number of instances where she has been asked to perform the famous dance step.
But Rashmika has left some fans disappointed as she revealed that she will not perform it anymore.
The actress made the revelation whilst answering fan questions on social media.
When one fan said they wanted to dance with her to the popular track, Rashmika replied:
“I’ve done Saami Saami step too many times that now I feel like I’ll have issues with my back when I get older… why you do this to me??
“Let’s do something else when we meet.”
Rashmika was also asked if she enjoys Malayalam cinema. She responded:
“Are you kidding.. loveeeeee Malayalam cinema. Malayalam films are just so pure and people are full of love.”

When asked if she has learnt Marathi, Rashmika said:
“It was surreal. Learnt some new Marathi phrases well… soon I’ll manage to speak like little little, hopefully!”
Rashmika Mandanna is predominantly known for working in Telugu and Kannada cinema but she has since ventured into Tamil and Hindi cinema.
She made her Bollywood debut in Goodbye, which starred Amitabh Bachchan and Neena Gupta.
While she has enjoyed success, Rashmika has also had to deal with scrutiny.
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.”
On the work front, Rashmika Mandanna is currently filming Animal with Ranbir Kapoor and Pushpa 2: The Rule with Allu Arjun.
