South Indian sensation Rashmika Mandanna has risen to the top of the league in quick time after just 10 film releases to date. The popular actress became a major crowd puller in Kannada and Telugu films, while having garnered a massive fan following among Tamil audiences despite not having a single release till now. Known prominently for her films such as Kirik Party, Geetha Govindam, Dear Comrade, Sarileru Neekevvaru and Bheeshma, Rashmika is now said to be in contention to play the female lead in blockbuster director Surendar Reddy's next venture. 

Surender Reddy, whose Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy starring 'Mega Star' Chiranjeevi turned out to be a phenomenal success last year, had recently announced Akhil Akkineni to be the lead in his upcoming next. Now, there is a strong buzz that Rashmika Mandanna will likely be paired in the film opposite Akhil, which has left her fans quite excited, who are now waiting for an official confirmation. As for Akhil Akkineni, he will also be seen in the highly anticipated Most Eligible Bachelor opposite the sultry diva Pooja Hegde. The film's first look poster featuring both stars received a tremendous response from fans sometime back. 

Rashmika is currently attached to the Kannada action thriller, Pogaru, opposite Dhruva Sarja, while she will also be seen opposite Telugu superstar Allu Arjun in Pushpa, which has him playing the role of a sandalwood smuggler. Tamil cinema fans too will finally be getting to see the gorgeous actress in the action comedy family entertainer, Sulthan, opposite Karthi, as the film wrapped up production recently and is reportedly being planned for a theatrical release alongside 'Thalapathy' Vijay's Master

It has truly been a remarkable time in Rashmika's professional career considering she is landing big projects opposite top stars and that too in such a short span of time. The popular actress who time and again continues to charm fans with her cute expressions had stunned fans with a power-packed performance in last year's romantic action drama, Dear Comrade, opposite Vijay Deverakonda, in which she nailed the role of a state cricket player.
