Rashmika Mandanna, who is currently busy promoting her film 'Goodbye', has opened up about receiving online hate over her kiss scene in 'Dear Comrade'. The actress was brutally trolled for sharing a kiss with her co-star Vijay Deverakonda in the 2019 release romantic drama. Now, in a recent interview, Rashmika revealed how she dealt with criticism and incessant trolling. She stated it was ‘painful’ to read nasty things about her and that she used to cry herself to bed.
Speaking with Zoom, the Pushpa actress stated, “The second it happened, it carried on for months. It was this, that, whatever. And there were so many painful moments happening and painful things I was reading, I was seeing. I have been through that. And I would have constant dreams where you know you feel like you are the only one and everyone has turned their back on you and you are calling out for them. That was a constant dream, I don't know what it was and I don't know how it was. I would wake myself up with such dreams and cry myself to bed, or even wake up crying.” ALSO READ: Amitabh Bachchan - Rashmika Mandanna starrer 'GOODBYE' becomes the first film to adopt the reduced pricing policy on the opening day after the National Cinema Day
Mandanna added that she could not even share what she was going through with her family as she did not want to make them sad. Directed by Bharat Kamma ‘Dear Comrade’ revolved around Bobby (Vijay Deverakonda) who falls in love with Lilly (Rashmika) and struggles to accept that she doesn’t want him in her life anymore. The movie was a hit at the box office and fans loved Rashmika and Vijay’s chemistry in the same. Their passionate kissing scene grabbed many eyeballs and became a hot topic of discussion back then.
Meanwhile, the actress’ upcoming film Goodbye with Amitabh Bachchan will be released in theatres on October 7, 2022.
