Yash is one of the biggest actors in the nation and he is very popular down South. The actor garnered an army of fan following after he starred in KGF and it is by far one of the best films by Yash at the box office. But did you know that Pushpa actress Rashmika Mandanna had once called Yash the ‘Mr Showoff’ of the Kannada industry? Yes and that clearly did not sit well with Yash’s fanbase.

Rashmika made her debut in 2016 with the movie Kirrik Party and in 2017 she was making headlines over a shocking statement that she made. As per reports, Rashmika was asked, “Who, according to you, is the Mr Showoff in the Kannada film industry?”, she was quick to reply with Yash’s name. Well, it is not hard to imagine the reaction of the KGF actor’s fans.

Rashmika was brutally trolled and bashed by Yash’s fandom and she then released an apology on her social media account which is said to have read, “I have no disrespect towards Yash Sir or anyone. In fact, on many occasions, I have expressed my admiration towards Yash Sir, his talent and how he has inspired everyone, including myself. The media has sadly ignored that I mentioned Santhu Straight Forward as the movie that I enjoyed most at that time. When you edit and take just two lines from the most non serious part of the show and give it spin… the context is lost. That is really sad.”

She further added, “It wasn’t a statement I made but it was a game of rapid fire and never in my dreams I had any idea that this would be taken so seriously ignoring my admiration and all the positive statements I had made about him. I am sorry if I have hurt any of your feelings. I did not intend to. My upbringing will never let me do that. I request everyone to have a look on my other interviews and FB lives where I have appreciated Yash sir’s work and when asked I have also expressed my desire to work with him.”
