Rashmika Mandanna, who is currently busy promoting her upcoming movie Bheeshma, was recently seen playing Mahesh Babu's love interest in Sarileru Neekevvaru.

She was given an over-the-top characterization and many were not happy with her facial expressions and body language. Some said that her scenes were more like episodic and were not connected with the story at all.

The actress was asked about criticism for her role during the promotion of Bheeshma. "That's how my character was to behave in the film and that's exactly what I did. We work very hard to look the part, but I am always open to criticism; I believe I have grown because of it. So I always look at it as an opportunity to better myself," Deccan Chronicle quoted Rashmika as saying.
