Rashmika Mandanna created quite a stir across social media by dropping a brand new poster from her upcoming film Animal, starring Ranbir Kapoor, on Tuesday morning. In the poster, the film’s lead pair, Rashmika and Ranbir, can be seen stealing a kiss while being seated inside an aero plane. Soon after the poster was up, the actresses’ Instagram comment thread exploded with comments about her Geetha Govindam co-star Vijay Deverakonda. One user wrote, “Arey yeh kya diya yaar, Vijay Sir ko dhokha (What did you do, betrayed Vijay sir),” while another commented, “Vijay be like jaldi waha se hato (Vijay be like, move away at once).” For all those wondering, Vijay Deverakonda has worked with Animal star Rashmika Mandanna in films such as Geetha Govindam and Dear Comrade. They were rumoured to be dating last year.
The poster was shared by Rashmika alongside the announcement of the release of Animal’s first song Hua main on Wednesday. For the caption she wrote, “Hua main out tomorrow..this song is love. And I personally love it in all the versions..Hindi,Telugu,Kannada,Tamil and Malayalam.”
Take a look at the poster below:
