96 remake Jaanu featuring Samantha and Sharwananda as the lead pair was released last week. With super-hit talk but dull collections, it shocked the film trade. It is being said that a heroine is happy to see Jaanu joining the list of flop films. When Dil Raju bought Jaanu movie rights, he wanted to cast Samantha as the heroine. When he showed her 96, she was reluctant to do Trisha’s character. Without making any commitment, she kept quiet. Following this Dil Raju, as the second option, approached Rashmika, who is currently the top level heroine in Tollywood.
With Rashmika saying no to Dil Raju’s offer, Dil Raju persuaded Samantha to do the role and finally succeeded. Thus Rashmika is said to be happy for escaping a flop movie. During the promotion of Bhishma, Rashmika was asked about not doing Jaanu. “It is a closed chapter. I need not say anything,” she said. Going by the way she avoided the matter with a smile, she appears to be very happy over avoiding a flop movie like Jaanu
