My forte is to do more family dramas
When asked which genre attracts her more, Rashmika says, I love romantic dramas and but votes more for family dramas. In the future too, I will be doing family dramas more as there is so much scope to showcase strong emotions and everyone can watch it as well”
Mumbai/Bollywood media is extremely supportive of me

But the Mumbai/Bollywood media have been quite supportive of me and always showcase in a good light. Even though I am just two films old, the media have made me quite popular”.
I don't like others dubbing for my voice
Initially, Rashmika's voice was being dubbed in Telugu. But off late, she is dubbing for herself. “I don't like others dubbing for my voice and have dubbed on my own for two of my Hindi films as well. The essence goes missing when someone else dubs for you” says Rashmika.
