Rashmika Mandanna, the actor, has announced the completion of the film “Chhava” and expressed her gratitude to director Laxman Utekar and co-star Vicky Kaushal for their support.
The film, a period action drama produced by Dinesh Vijan of Maddock Films, features Kaushal in the role of Maratha warrior Chhatrapati Sambhaji Maharaj and Mandanna as his wife Yesubai.
On Saturday, 27-year-old Rashmika Mandanna updated her Instagram Story about the film.
“@laxman.utekar sir… It amazes me how a man can manage such a large set with at least 1500 working people with such tranquility and grace. “Sir, you envisioned me as Yesubai when no one else could have, and I’m truly curious as to how. And it’s not just me. The entire country will be curious… but seeing those visuals brings tears to my eyes… you’ve elicited a performance from me that I can’t wait for the world to see,” wrote the “Animal” actor.
Referring to Kaushal as ‘Maharaj’, Mandanna shared that she thoroughly enjoyed working with him on screen.
“It’s been an absolute delight working with you. You are incredibly warm and kind (except for the last day when you were just teasing me) but most days you were fantastic. I’m just joking. You’re a real treasure. I’ll always wish the best for you, man. It was such a pleasure. My mom has asked me to send her regards to you (sic),” she added in her post.
“Chhava” is the second collaboration between Kaushal and Utekar, following their successful 2023 family comedy “Zara Hatke Zara Bachke”.
Mandanna’s future projects include “Pushpa: The Rule” and “The Girlfriend”.
