During her stint at an advertising firm, as mentioned earlier, she was also trying her luck in modelling grabbing every opportunity. She appeared in several commercials including ‘Tata Sky’, ‘Domino Pizza’ and ‘Tanishq Diamonds’. Impressed by her charm, pretty looking face and of course, her acting in ‘Tata Sky’ ad, the casting director of ‘Madras Café’ Jogi called and asked her to give audition for the film. The actress auditioned for ‘Madras Café’ without any expectations only to be surprised by a call from the director of the movie, Shoojit Sircar. This unexpected offer changed her life altogether with multiple movies lined up for years.
The actress apparently wasn’t yet sure of taking up acting as a full-fledged career even after her first film ‘Madras Café’ turning a big success. But, it is after Raashi Khanna’s first Telugu film ‘Oohalu Gusagusalaade’ released and turned into a blockbuster, the actress took a serious decision of continuing in the film industry. Interestingly, even before her Telugu debut ‘Oohalu Gusagusalaade’ released, ‘Manam’ in which she appeared in a blink-and-you-miss-it cameo, hit the screens first introducing cute Raashi Khanna to Telugu silver screen.
‘Oohalu Gusa Gusalaade’ can be considered as the first best thing happened in Rashi Khanna’s film career. It helped to establish her place in the film industry among the young crop of heroines. In the role of Prabhavathy, a girl from Delhi who comes to Vizag for summer vacation received numerous accolades. Immediately after ‘Oohalu Gusagusalaade’, she acted opposite Sundeep Kishan in the film ‘Joru’. Although the film failed at the box office, it hasn’t prevented the actress from getting offers from all over. Notably, Raashi Khanna has sung title song of ‘Joru’ which still stands as one of the most watched videos of her on YouTube.
