Rashmika Mandanna reacts to fan’s comment on ‘Animal’: Advises Women to Trust ‘Good Men’

Rashmika Mandanna, a popular actor known for her engaging interactions with fans on social media, recently addressed a fan’s comment regarding her character Gitanjali from her latest release, Animal. In the film, Rashmika portrays the loyal wife of Ranbir Kapoor’s character, Rannvijay, who cheats on her, causing significant emotional turmoil.

Rashmika’s Thoughtful Response


A fan on X shared an edited video from Animal highlighting the pain Gitanjali endures after trusting her husband, who betrays her by having an affair with Triptii Dimri’s character, Zoya. The fan captioned the video, “Remember nothing is scarier than trusting a man…”

Rashmika, known for her candidness, responded with a nuanced correction: “Correction: trusting a stupid man = scary.. there are a lot of good men also out there.. trusting those men = special. ❤️”

Rashmika’s Reflection on Gitanjali

Earlier, Rashmika had shared a heartfelt note describing her character Gitanjali:

“In a world full of all violence, hurt and unbearable pain – Gitanjali would bring peace, trust, and calm. She would pray to her Gods to keep her husband and her kids safe. She was the rock that weathered all the storms. She would do anything in her power for the sake of her family. Gitanjali is absolutely beautiful in my eyes, and in some ways, she is like most women who are standing strong and protecting their families day in and day out.”
