There have been rumors that Rashmika and Vijay Deverakonda are seeing each other off-screen as well. They are a hot pair on-screen and good friends in real life. But are they lovers?

Rashmika Mandanna who has acted with Vijay Deverakonda in two films “Geetha Govindam” and “Dear Comrade” said she would not worry about what people talk about them. “There is nothing I should respond to such rumors. We have to ignore them,” she said.

Rashmika also got miffed with the media constantly highlighting her smooch scenes with him. “It is part of our job. It is like any other emotion. Why make so much fuss about it,” she questions.

Rashmika, however, has admitted that Vijay Deverakonda is her good friend and she still is the one person who approaches him for acing tips. “He is an amazing actor. That I have realized only during the shoot of ‘Dear Comrade’,” she confessed.

Why did Rashmika many big movies that came her way after “Geetha Govindam”? She reasons that filmmakers have offered her stereotype roles which she didn’t want to take up. “After the success of ‘Chalo’, all filmmakers came to me offering student roles. Similarly happened with ‘Geetha Govindam’. I have started getting serious-type roles after this success. Not that I don’t play such roles again but I don’t want to be typecast. That is why I selected Lilly’s character in ‘Dear Comrade’ over others,” she explained in detail.

She wants strong roles. “A character should have sense. I will give 200 percent if they want to kick butt, I would I also go to that extent of learning fights but I want roles that have written, not just being glamour doll,” she says.
