Confirming this, director of the film Rohit Shetty says, “Yes, we are in talks with Anushka. But a decision has not been taken yet. Hopefully things will be finalized in a week’s time.”
It is said that the director of films such as ‘Golmaal’, ‘Golmaal Returns’ and ‘Golmaal 3’ was impressed with the actress’s performance when he watched ‘Singam’. “He feels Anushka had done a fantastic job,” sources say.
‘Singam’, one of the very few blockbusters of Tamil cinema in 2010, was dubbed and released in Telugu as ‘Yamudu’. It is being remade in Kannada as ‘Kempe Gowda’, with Sudeep playing the protagonist.
