Allu Arjun’s ‘Pushpa – The Rise’ has been released across the world on the 17th of December and the film has been getting mixed responses from all over. Meanwhile, Rashmika has finally answered why she didn’t dub for the Kannada version of the film.
Rashmika Mandanna is a Kannadiga by birth and she started her career from Sandalwood itself. After making her debut with Kannada film ‘Kirik Party’, the actress went on to Tollywood and became a big star there. After that the actress never returned back to Kannada cinema. Her last film was ‘Pogaru’ which she had signed two years back.
When ‘Pushpa’ got dubbed into Kannada, Kannadigas hoped that the actress might at least dub for her portions in Kannada. However, it proved wrong with Rashmika dubbing only for the Telugu version, but not the Kannada version. Rashmika being a Kannadiga, could have at least dubbed for the Kannada version of the film. This has irked Kannadigas a lot, which led to Rashmika being trolled in social media, for the last few days.
Rashmika has finally answered why she could not dub for the Kannada version of ‘Pushpa’. The actress was recently in Bangalore for the pre-release event of the film and has spoken at about why she couldn’t dub for the film.
‘The real reason behind for not dubbing for my role in Kannada is the lack of the time. We had not much time and the post-production for the film had to be rushed because of lack of time. I was also busy with my prior commitments and couldn’t dub in Kannada. I hope to dub in the second part which will release next year’ said Rashmika.
Rashmika plays the character of Srivalli, who is Pushparaj alias Pushpa’s soul mate in the film. The film is said to be based on the Red Sanders smuggling in the Seshachalam Hills of the Rayalseema region. ‘Pushpa’ is being planned as a two-part film and the action thriller is written and directed by Sukumar. The film is bankrolled by Mythri Movie Makers banner.
The film stars Allu Arjun, Fahadh Faasil, Rashmika Mandanna and Dhananjay in prominent roles. ‘Pushpa’ is a PAN-Indian film and has been released in in five languages including Telugu, Kannada, Hindi, Tamil and Malayalam. Devi Sri Prasad is the music composer.
