Actress Anjali has boldly taken on a role which had been rejected by many frontline actresses in both Tamil and Telugu. She has agreed to play Venkatesh’s heroine in an upcoming Telugu film which has another top hero Mahesh Babu playing Venkatesh’s younger brother in it.
As such, by agreeing to be paired up opposite Venkatesh, Anjali would obviously be playing Mahesh Babu’s Anni (sister-in-law) in the film. It’s this possibility which made many heroines refuse the offer to play Venkatesh’s heroine in this particular film. As she has always been daringly different, Anjali has taken up the role and has decided to go ahead with it.
While most of the heroines have been ready to do anything to land up an offer opposite Mahesh Babu, it remains to be seen whether Anjali’s decision to play his sister-in-law would hurt her chances of making it big in the Telugu film industry in the days to come. Anjali, who has earned the tage of an actress of substance through her roles in films like Angaadi Theru and Engeyum Eppodhum, is hoping that her decision doesn’t back fire.
It is also said that Amala Paul, who would soon be making her debut in Telugu films through a direct Telugu film, had first agreed to take up the role but backed up at the very last moment as she had a fledgling career. Anjali, who has signed along the dotted lines and has taken up the offer, is optimistic about her chances in Tollywood and Kollywood.
