'Mission Majnu' producer Garima Mehta praises Rashmika Mandanna, says 'she played better cricket than the boys'


Producer Garima Mehta recently praised her Mission Majnu actress Rashmika Mandanna. Garima, who has over two decades of scripting and production experience, has worked with companies like Fox Star Studios, Salman Khan Ventures, Ramesh Sippy Entertainment, and Cineyug Entertainment;. Garima has been an associate producer on films like Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Tubelight, and Hero. Garima Mehta is currently at the forefront of running her production house - Guilty By Association, along with her producing partner Amar Butala. Their first feature film, Mission Majnu starring Sidharth Malhotra-Rashmika Mandanna is streaming on Netflix from January 20.

Producer Garima described Rashmika as a brilliant actor with a great attitude and said, "Rashmika Mandanna took weeks of training to ace her role as the blind girl. During preparation, we bonded over our love of Korean dramas and desserts. She is flawless in her craft, which comes from the hard work she puts into preparing for a role. A delightful person to be around, she can melt even a stressful situation with her smile and good vibes on the set. She would play cricket with the team during breaks and played better than most of them :) I hope this becomes a long-lasting relationship and we do many more films together.
