I am a great fan of Ilayaraja: Anushka
The film Alex Pandian which has Anushka in the female lead role has been released and is running in the theatres. She is currently acting in Erandam Ulagam and Singam 2. In Telugu she is acting in a film titled Rani Rudrama Devi. This is a historical film.
Anushka is donning the role of Rani Rudrama. Ilayaraja is composing music for this film. Anushka while speaking to the media said, “The shooting of Alex Pandian took place in forest areas. They shot the fighting sequences with much difficult. The yoga I learnt gave me the boldness to act in these sequences.
The shooting took place in the night in the forest areas. Elephants passed by us. The yoga which I had learnt for many years gave me a helping hand at that time. Karthi and director Sooraj helped me with all the amenities. The whole crew was like a family. Karthi and director Sooraj moved with me like a brother. This helped me to bring out my acting skills in this film. The film Rudrama Devi in which I am acting has the music of Ilayaraja. I am a great fan of him. I love all his songs.”
