Reports emanating from Tollywood say that following back-to-back colossal box-office successes in the form of Baahubali and Rudhramadevi, the lanky Anushka is gearing up to star in another historical film titled as Bagamathi.
Anushka, who now awaits the release of her Inji Iduppazhagi (Size Zero in Telugu) soon in theatres, is slated to play a queen again in Bagamathi, following the title role of the Kakatiya dynasty queen she played with aplomb in Rudhramadevi. Anushka’s height, her graceful body and her facial beauty all combined together the make the film a hit at the box-office.
Upcoming Tollywood director Ashok would be directing Bagamathi which has its script set in a historical backdrop. Anushka reportedly nodded in agreement after Ashok met her recently and narrated the script. In all probability, Anushka would start to work in Bagamathi after the first quarter of next year (after March) after she completes her shooting schedule of Baahubali 2 (titled tentatively as Mahaabali).
Ashok had already made a blockbuster hit film in Pilla Zamindar.
