In a world where friends are few, South star Rashmika Mandanna has found one in Vijay Deverakonda. While the world has deduced that there is more than what meets the eye between the two South imports, Mandanna, who is all set to make her Bollywood debut with Shantanu Bagchi’s Mission Majnu, says it is friendship but she no longer cares to classify it. “I have no family in the film [industry]. Vijay has always been my best friend. We have grown up together in this industry. [While I don’t actively seek advice from him], if a situation arises, I always go to him.”
