Rashmika and Rakshit Shetty's failed engagement last year made headlines and unfortunately for the actress, the public had not been kind to her about it.

Instead of respecting her feelings and giving her some privacy to grieve over the broken engagement, she had instead received a heavy backlash after she announced the break-up on Twitter!

Recently, at the promotions of her upcoming film "Dear Comrade", Rashmika was asked about the split with Rakshit and her co-star Vijay Deverakonda decided to defend her and put the reporter in their place.

He said, "I don't even know your question...but it is no one's business. Like I am giving answer.. I don't even understand the question...how is it anyone's business..."

Later Rashmika also responded and said, "It is such a long question for me to understand it as well."

Good for Vijay for being such a good friend and by the sound of Rashmika's response, it is obvious that she is still coming to terms with the break up.

Rashmika had posted the news about the break-up on Twitter in September 2018 but Rakshit's fans were so vicious towards her on social media that the actor had to step in and request his fans to leave her alone.

He said, "You all have formed opinions about Rashmika. I don't blame any of you because that's how it is projected. I have known Rashmika for more than two years and I have known her better than any of you. There are many factors that are acting here. Please stop judging her. Please let her be in peace."

Vijay Deverakonda and Rashmika are currently in Bengaluru to promote their film "Dear Comrade", which will be released in Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam and Kannada on 26 July. There have been rumours that the actress is now so in demand, that her asking salary is considered as unaffordable for some producers in Kannada.

Rashmika has defended her increase in salary by saying that she has been in the industry for a couple of years now and her growth in the industry also means an increase in salary. She had also stated that it was her right to get a higher salary and that she shouldn't be working for less. Source: MSN
