Popular South Indian actress Rashmika Mandanna became the talk of the town after she revealed her favourite IPL franchise. To be frank, everyone expected her to say, MI or CSK.
But she surprised all of us by saying Royal Challengers Bangalore indirectly. Yes, she didn’t say the club’s name but told the RCB’s famous motto, saying: “Ee Saala Cup Namde”.
The popular phrase roughly translates to “This time the cup is ours”. She revealed her favourite franchise during a social media interaction with fans before the now-suspended cash-rich IPL.
This has been the Bangalore-based club’s slogan since the start of the Indian Premier League. RCB reached the IPL final on 3 occasions but sadly, they didn’t win even once.
Rashmika is one of the beautiful actresses in the South film industry. The popular actress has starred in Kannada, Telugu, and Tamil in her cinematic career. The 24-year-old actress has a huge fan following in India.
She also made her Kollywood (Tamil) debut with Sulthan opposite Karthi. The film was directed by Bakkiyaraj Kannan. However, she hasn’t stepped into the Bollywood film industry.
