Rashmika was widely appreciated for her performance in the film Pushpa starring Allu Arjun. Her acting showed the rawness that was needed for the role, and with just a few scenes, the actress ruled over the audience’s hearts.

However, the Farhana actress Aishwarya Rajesh in an interview, revealed that she could have portrayed ‘Srivalli’ better than Rashmika Mandanna, and this comment created quite a buzz around everywhere. Now, Aishwarya issued a new statement where she lauded Rashmika and wrote that her statement was misconstructed and wrongly portrayed.

Aishwarya wrote, “Talking about work, I was asked in a recent interview on the kind of roles I want to do in Telugu cinema. I replied that I like the Telugu film industry a lot and that I would certainly do Telugu films if I got roles that were to my liking. To cite an example, I said I liked the character of Srivalli in Pushpa a lot as I felt such characters would suit me. However, unfortunately, my statement seems to have been misconstrued and is being reported in such a fashion so as to give the impression that I was disparaging the fantastic work of actress Rashmika Mandanna in the film.”

She further continued and penned, “I wish to clear the confusion that seems to have ensued and clarify very clearly that I have nothing but profound admiration for Rashmika’s work in the film and that I have immense respect for all my fellow actors and actresses.”
