"Was there a silence before the storm? [sic]" his comeback post on Twitter read, indicating that he is fully charged up after the break. However, like earlier, he would not be handling his accounts, but his digital team will manage his Twitter, Facebook and Instagram pages.

After his break-up with Rashmika Mandanna, Rakshit Shetty had decided to quit. He had found social media to be distracting his work.

To everybody's surprise, Rakshit Shetty has retuned to the social media sites again bowing down to his fans' demand.

Avane Srimannarayana Teaser

However, the birthday celebration was doubled by the teaser release from his upcoming film Avane Srimannarayana. The video was supposed to be out on Thursday, but due to technical issues it was released on Friday. 

It is a 2.16-minute teaser which is powered by Rakshit Shetty's swag and style. It doesn't give away much about the storyline, but visuals and background remain major highlights of the film. 

The shooting of period drama has been wrapped up recently and post-production works are happening at full swing. The makers have plans to release Avane Srimannarayana in five languages – Kannada, Tamil, Telugu, Hindi and Malayalam.
