Last year for the first time, the Mission Majnu star hap opened up about the troll and negativity with a long note to her fans and followers on social media platforms. Here are some of the excerpts from her post.

“I have been on the receiving end of a lot of hate ever since I started my career. Quite literally a punching bag for a lot of trolls and negativity out there. I know that the life I’ve chosen comes with a price– I understand that I’m not everyone’s cup of tea and certainly don’t expect to be loved by every single person out there. That doesn’t mean because you don’t approve of me you can spew negativity instead,” Rashoo had written.

On the work front, Rashmika was last seen in Mission Majnu which is streaming on Netflix. She was praised for the portrayal of the blind girl Nasreen in the movie. She will next be seen in Animal opposite Ranbir Kapoor and in Puspha 2 alongside Allu Arjun.
