Actor Yash is undoubtedly one of the most popular actors in the Kannada film industry. In 2017, Rashmika Mandanna called the KGF actor “ Mr Showoff ” in one of her interviews and her fans brutally trolled her on social media. Later, actress Dear Comrade wrote a note on Facebook addressing the issue.
It was a fun interview, where Rashmika called Yash a “ showoff ” and at first she was hesitant to keep the backlash and lag in mind, but she did it anyway.
Yash fans were so upset with Rashmika Mandanna’s comments on him that they roughed her up on social media. The Dear Comrade actress shared an apology post on Facebook that read:
“At the outset, let me share that I too am extremely unhappy and disturbed by this sudden turn of events regarding a talk show, which was filmed 7 months ago, even before the release of Kirik Party. The interview was broadcast on Star Suvarna when Kirik Party was released and was broadcast recently, ”said Rashmika Mandanna.
“I have no disrespect for Yash Sir or anyone. In fact, on numerous occasions, I have expressed my admiration for Yash Sir, his talent and the way he has inspired everyone, including myself. The media unfortunately ignored that I had mentioned Santhu Straight Forward as the movie I liked the most at the time. When you change and take just two lines of the more non-serious part of the show and give it a spin… the context is lost. It’s truly sad. It wasn’t a statement I made but it was a fast-paced shooter and never in my dreams had I had the slightest idea that it would be taken so seriously ignoring my admiration and all the positive statements I made. ‘had done about it. I’m sorry if I hurt any of your feelings. I had no intention of doing it. My education will never allow me to do that. I ask everyone to take a look at my other interviews and fb lives where I enjoyed the work of Yash Sir and when asked I also expressed my desire to work with him.
