Before the release of Geetha Govindam, there were rumours that Rashmika Mandanna and Rakshit Shetty were heading for a break-up.
However, the actors' side denied all such rumours. Now, turns out that the couple has actually called off the engagement that happened in 2017.
This left fans of Rakshit Shetty and Rashmika in shock. It is said that Rashmika now wants to concentrate on her career in the Telugu film industry and is not ready to tie the knot any time soon.
Now, Rashmika's mother, on a local TV channel, opened up about the break-up.
A popular entertainment website quoted Rashmika's mother as saying, "We are disturbed and on the path to recovery. For every individual, his life comes first. Nobody likes to hurt each other and everybody should be happy."
Looks like the families of the couple were discussing their decision for the past one month and finally chose to break off the engagement.
Rashmika and Rakshit started dating while working together in the hit Kannada film Kirik Party. They later got engaged in a grand ceremony in 2017.
Rashmika is currently basking in the success of her Telugu film Geetha Govindam, her film opposite Arjun Reddy star Vijay Devarakonda. She has Comrade in the pipeline, in which she plays a cricketer.
