Rakshit Shetty is arguably one of the most popular and talented young stars in the Kannada film industry today. And, at present, the young man is in the limelight because of his breakup with actress Rashmika Mandanna. Earlier today, Rashmika's mother confirmed the bad news and added that the families took this decision as there were some differences between the Kirik Party co-actors. She also indicated that both families are shocked by what has happened. Now, Rakshit has broken his silence on the matter.
In a strongly-worded Facebook post, Rakshit said that a lot of people have formed a wrong opinion of Rashmika because of the way a certain section of the media has reported the breakup. He requested his fans to stop judging Rashmika and added that he would issue a proper clarification in the days to come.
" I had announced that I will be off social media to concentrate on other things. But I had to come back in order to clarify a few things, for what has been playing it from the last couple of days has been literally snatching away everything a person loved and lived for!
You all have formed opinions about Rashmika. I don't blame any of you because that's how it is projected. Everyone of us believe what we see and what is said. But it need not be true. Most of the time we come to a conclusion without even thinking from another perspective.
I have known Rashmika for more than two years and I have known her better than any of you. There are many factors which are acting here. Please stop judging her. Please let her be in peace. I hope everything comes to a conclusion soon and you all will know the reality. Please don't go by any media news. None of them have first hand information from me or Rashmika herself. Many are creating their own news for their requirement. Assumptions are not reality," he added.
The star also indicated that he would be leaving the social media for a while and added that it had nothing to do with his breakup.
"Keeping this page live for few days so that this message is conveyed to everyone. I will be back when It's really needed and me leaving social media has nothing to do with any of this. I only want to concentrate on work since social media was getting addictive," he added.
This seems to be quite an emotional post and it is bound to create a great deal of buzz amongst the fans. This is a developing situation and it will be worth watching what happens next.
