She said, ”Bollywood romantic songs were a thing. For me, while growing up, romantic songs meant Bollywood numbers. In the South, we have mass masala, item numbers, and dance numbers. This is my first Bollywood romantic song. I am so excited because it’s so good,”
Nevertheless, the young actress was sharing her personal experience, many South fans took offense to her statement. One user wrote,
”But if you want to elevate Bollywood romantic songs, Simply you should have limited your words to that point, There’s no need of Comparing with south songs, masala numbers,bla bla…”.

@iamRashmika seems you forgot what actually romantic song is when you got back to back hits from South and gave a path to work in bollywood. Shame on you for speaking south will have only mass masala and Item songs.

I really feel in her late 20's also @iamRashmika had no idea abt the word meaning called bollywood ,so it's our foolishness to believe when she said 'I had a real thing for Bollywood romantic songs' 😅😅.

After she gained success and split up with her Husband. she humiliated and attacked her first production company in an interview. For the sake of a shot at Hindi, she now denigrated the whole South film industry. #RashmikaMandanna #banrashmika #Varisu #ThunivuTrailer https://t.co/3tFljYPRRs
