Rashmika Mandanna joins the sets of Thalapathy66

Rashmika Mandanna, who is playing the leading lady in Thalapathy66, recently joined the sets of the film. The actress took to her Instagram page and shared her excitement that she was happy to be part of the project. She will be shooting for the film for the next few weeks in Hyderabad.

Rashmika wrote on her page, "Dear diary, 11/5/22, Woke up to do some much needed cardio to start the burning process of all that I've been indulging for the last almost 25 odd days *got ready headed to the shoot *got my makeup and hair done and went to the set when called and met Vamsi sir and Vijay sir and Yogi Babu sir and the team. It feels sooooo good spending so much time with them.. happy happy me.. so grateful the shoot went well and by 4/5 Pm I passed out on one of the chairs on set well loves when I say I literally can't sleep anywhere I ain't joking.. I actually have the gift... then well it was a pack up for me.. (sic)"

This is the first time that Rashmika is teaming up with Vijay for a film. Thalapathy66, directed by Vamsi Paidipally, has an ensemble star cast that includes Shaam, Yogi Babu, Sarathkumar, Prakash Raj, Prabhu, Sangeetha, Srikanth and Samyuktha to name a few. Music for the film is by Thaman. Cinematography is by Kharthik Phalani and editing is by Praveen KL Prabhu. The film is expected to hit screens next year for Pongal. Thalapathy66 is Vamsi's second film in Tamil after Thozha which had Nagarjuna, Karthi and Tamanaah in the lead.

Rashmika had made her Tamil debut last year with Karthi's Sulthan, which was directed by Bakkiyaraj Kannan. The film turned out to be a dampener at the box office.
