Vijay Deverakonda and Rashmika Mandanna starred together in Dear Comrade which completes 1 year today (July 26). The film was released on July 26, 2019, opening to positive reviews from the critics and the fans. Directed by Bharat Kamma (in his directorial debut), Dear Comrade was a beautifully written love story that also talked about comrade and communism. The performances of the lead actors (Vijay and Rashmika) received unanimous praise and it also turned out to be a memorable outing for them. The film had music scored by Justin Prabhakaran who delivered a chartbuster album.

The entire album received a thunderous response from the fans, with especially the magical melody number, 'Kadalalle' (Pularaadha in Tamil), turning out to be a huge hit. Marking the one year anniversary of Dear Comrade, the makers have released a new reprise version of the song, 'O Kalala Kathala' and this is another beauty from Justin Prabhakaran. The video of this song has shots featuring the lead pair and editing looks neat. This song is penned by lyricist Rehman. This new reprise version song has been released on the official YouTube channel of Mythri Movie Makers, who produced the film.

Similarly, actress Rashmika took to her Instagram page to share a new video that shows how she got ready for her role as Lilly. This video has already gone viral among the fans. Rashmika played the role of a female cricketer and we see how she practiced her shots and prepared for the role. Dear Comrade was a film that showcased the performer inside Rashmika and the fans would wish to see more of that in the coming years.

Sharing the video, Rashmika wrote, “One Year of Dear Comrade✨ being a woman.. Being a fighter.. Being real..
