Anushka is very much in demand in both Tamil and Telugu and is immense popular among producers and directors and all her heroes. Though her last Tamil film Thandavam didn’t do well at the box-office, she has films opposite Arya and brothers Suriya and Karthi in Tamil.
Anushka, who has comfortably reached the top spot in both Tamil and Telugu is not the one who would be content with that. Surely she aspires for more. She seems to be fed up with typical masala heroine and started looking for more meaningful roles. The tall girl has already proved her prowess in carrying the whole film on her majestic shoulders, is at it once again. She has signed up for a movie Titled as Rudhramadevi which can be compared with her super hit movie Arundhati.
The mega budget movie would be a bilingual venture in Tamil and Telugu. It is said to be based on some chilling real-life incidents which took place in the 13th century. Anushka is said to be so impressed with the script that she decided to allot bulk dates of 150 days, something which she has never done in her career.
Usually Anushka doesn’t give call-sheet of more than 30 days to any of her films. She made an exception and allotted a continuous 60-day schedule to play the lead role in director Selvaraghavan’s upcoming film Irandaam Ulagam opposite Aarya. Now she has gone a step ahead and allotted as many as five months of non-stop call-sheet schedule to an upcoming film of hers.
The added attraction in Rudhramadevi is that it has music by Maestro Ilaiyaraaja.
