Rashmika Mandanna has won millions of hearts with her acting chops in Kannada and Telugu films like Geetha Govindam, Sarrileru Neekevaru and Dear Comrade. She has also bagged some interesting Bollywood projects where she will be sharing screens with the legendary actors Amitabh Bachchan and Neena Gupta. Now, the South Indian beauty has expressed an interest in doing a Bengali role. 

This development happened after a fan shared a black and white sketch art, portraying her in a Bengali avatar. Impressed by the fan art, she shared on her Instagram profile that she would love to explore a Bengali character. She posted the fanart on her story and wrote: "Now I reaaalllyyy want to do a Bengali character.. This is so well done.. Thankieeeee you guys."

Meanwhile, the actor is busy with several projects in different languages in her kitty. She will also be seen making her Bollywood debut soon. She is currently working on Mission Manju alongside Siddharth Malhotra and Goodbye along with Amitabh Bachchan and Neena Gupta. 

However, one of the busiest actors, Rashmika hasn't been able to work on a Kannda project after Kirik Party. Speaking to Pinkvilla, she had said that she hasn't been able to find time amid working in Telugu and Hindi films. "I'm just going to do a pan-Indian film so it can release in all languages. I mean if I work in 4 South languages and a Hindi film in a year, then I will be needing 565 days," she had said jokingly.
