The year 2016 saw the release of the youthful Kannada entertainer campus love story Kirik Party directed by Rishab Shetty and starring Rakshit Shetty and Rashmika Mandanna. It was a successful debut for Rashmika, and also resulted in love blossoming between Rashmika and Rakshit.
The couple got engaged in early 2017, and since then had been concentrating on their respective careers, as Rakshit was working on Charlie 777 and Avane Srimannarayana while Rashmika had ventured down south entering Tollywood and scored a hit with Chalo debut, and a blockbuster with Geetha Govindam.
However, as per reports, the couple had started facing personal issues and compatibility issues, slowly increasing the rift between them, and finally after lots of thoughts, and discussions with family and elders, reportedly Rashmika has called it quits. There are also speculations that the actress got intimate with a guy and that is the reason behind.
