When most of the media is abuzz with the launch of ‘Vaanam‘ and the new pair of Silambarasan and Anushka we hear a different story from some sources. According to some news reaching us, Anushka is not the heroine of the film ‘Vaanam’ but she has been signed for an item song number only.
‘Vaanam’ is the remake of the recent sensational Telugu hit directed by Krish with Allu Arjun, Manoj Manchu, Anushka, Manoj Bajpai, Lekha Washington and others playing the lead roles. Tamil ‘Vaanam’ is being produced by B Ramesh and ‘VTV’ Ganesh and will have music by Yuvan Shankar Raja.
The story now doing rounds is this. Anushka first refused to play the same role in Tamil and then the Tamil producers asked her to do an item number only in the Tamil version. Still not interested Anushka quoted an exorbitant price thinking the producers will then avoid her for the film. However, when our producers agreed to the quoted price Anushka had no choice but to agree.
But the same Anushka has done an item role in Telugu for free. Of course that was for her close friend Bhoomika. Bhoomika is producing a Telugu film ‘Thakita Thakita’ and Anushka did a guest role with out any remuneration.
