CHENNAI: Rashmika Mandanna as Saanvi in 'Kirik Party' won Kannadigas’ hearts and won appreciation from other film industries, especially from Tollywood. The actress, who is currently shooting for Anjaniputra with Puneeth and for Chamak with Ganesh, is already much in demand in Telugu industry.

While she has committed to a Telugu project with Naga Shourya and to another project with Ram, her third Tollywood outing is bigger as Rashmika is paired opposite none other than Vijay Sai Deverakonda of Arjun Reddy fame.

The makers announced Rashmika as the heroine via a statement.

An elated Rashmika tweeted: "Happy to sign the film with Vijay Devarakonda in Parasuram's direction. Thanks to producers Allu Aravind and Bunny Vas."

Originally, Lavanya Tripathi was signed for the project.

For reasons unknown, she walked out of the film even before it went on the floors.

Even though Rashmika was in talks for a few Telugu projects, this film will mark her foray into the industry.

In Kannada, Rashmika is busy with "Anjani Putra" and "Chamak".

Earlier this year, she got engaged to her "Kirik Party" co-star Rakshit Shetty.
