Rashmika Mandanna is flying high with both big-budget Bollywood film in her kitty Sidharth Malhotra's Mission Majnu and Amitabh Bachchan's Goodbye.
But did you know, before that, Rashmika was offered Jersey with Shahid Kapoor? It is said that the actress was supposed to be a part of the film but backed out. Now, Mrunal Thakur has bagged the leading lady role in the film.
According to reports, Rashmika herself refused to be a part of Jersey. The actress stepped back because she felt she couldn't do proper justice to the role played by Shraddha Srinath in the Telugu original.
Jersey will be direct by Gowtam Tinnanuri; the Hindi version also has Pankaj Kapur in a vital role. The Telugu film had stars like Nani and Shraddha Srinath.
Jersey was released on 19 April 2019 and received positive reviews. The film won two National Film Awards, Best Feature Film in Telugu and Best Editing (Nooli).
