The lanky Anuskha Shetty a.k.a. Anushka is a top actress now both in Tamil and Telugu films. The actress has had a pretty satisfying year in 2011 vis-à-vis her Tamil film market is concerned. She has had a couple of releases and both of them have turned out to be successful ventures.
She first starred in Vaanam, reprising with aplomb the role of a sex-worker she essayed in the film’s original Telugu version Vedam. She then followed up the success of Vaanam with the Vikram-starrer Deivathirumagal directed by Vijay of Madarasapattinam and Kireedom fame. The film, which also had Amala Paul essaying a small but significant role, had Vikram playing the role of a mentally challenged person and was an emotional film which struck an immediate chord with the audiences.
With back-to-back successes in Vaanam and Deivathirumagal, Anushka is quite happy to have found a receptive audience in Tamil for her variety of roles in both the above-said films. No wonder frontline heroes are willing to go any length to get Anushka signed up as their heroines in their upcoming films. If it’s a romantic sequence, Anushka would put on a flooring perfume which would make the hero a happy man.
If the sequence required her to emote and cry, Anushka would prepare herself for the sequence by keeping mum and staying aloof several minutes before the commencement of the shooting of the particular sequence. By doing this, she not only earns the goodwill of heroes and directors but also ensures that they seek her when they hunt for a heroine in their next film(s).
Besides these, the actress who is a also trained yoga instructor, teaches and eggs on her co-stars and heroes to practice yoga to keep fit, both mentally and physically. She also doesn’t mind performing some asanas for the benefit of her co-stars!
