Geetha Govindam is one of the huge blockbusters in Telugu film industry. Vijay Deverakonda and Rashmika Mandanna worked together for the first time in the film. The movie shaped up on a budget of 5 crores and in the end, the film ended up scoring almost 123 crores at the box-office which is very huge. Rashmika Mandanna too instantly acquired the stardom in the movie industry.
Initially, the film's heroine role Geetha went to a lot of other star heroines but all of them rejected it citing their own reasons. Raashi Khanna is one among those heroines who rejected the role and the latest we hear is that Rakul Preet Singh
too did the same. During the promotions of her latest Bollywood film Marjavaan, the actress opened up on the same and has given a clarity.
Rakul Preet told that she got the role in Geetha Govindam but she let it go as she could not adjust the dates since the shoot for De De Pyaar De also happened at the same time. The actress told that she has no regrets for letting the project go but added that it would have been nice if she had become a part of the movie.
