In an interview with IndiaGlitz Telugu, the actor and filmmaker was asked whether he was still in touch with Rashmika. His reply has gone viral on social media. Rakshit said, "Yes, Rashmika and I are still in touch. She had a big dream in the world of cinema. Accordingly, she is moving towards that dream. She has the will to achieve the task she set out to do. We should pat her on the back for her achievement".
For the unversed, Rakshit Shetty and Rashmika Mandanna began dating each other after they worked on a film together titled Kirik Party. The former couple got engaged in 2017 in Virajpet in the presence of family and friends, but they called it off in 2018 due to unknown reasons.
