Gone are the days when heroines are expected to run around trees or keep crying in emotional scenes. These days, they are also focusing on the meat of their character and are not hesitating to do action sequences as well. But such roles require a good deal of preparation and that is what Anushka is doing right now.
It is known news that Anushka has been roped in to do the ambitious project of director Gunasekhar ‘Rudrama Devi’. This is being made in the 3D format and Anushka will be donning the role of the warrior queen. Sources say in order to look tough and stiff she is going for special exercises.
Recently Anushka was seen in ‘Damarukam’ but some of them felt she was losing her glow and charm. And for essaying the role of someone like Rudrama Devi, it is very important to have that grace and the personality. Many are saying that if Anushka does her workout rightly she will once again remind everyone of her role as Jejamma.
Anushka booked for 5 Months
Actress Anushka is one actress who is capable of carrying an entire film on her shoulders and her past films have proved the same. Every time a director visualizes about a women centric film, the first name that comes to his/her mind is that of this long legged lass. That’s the impact she has created with the magnum opus Arundathi.
Coming to the upcoming period film Rudrama Devi set in the 13th century, Gunasekhar who is wielding the mega phone has blocked the dates of Anushka for a period of 5 months. The mandatory condition in the contract that she shouldn’t sign any other new projects until she wraps up the shooting of this film indicates that the director hasn’t set any particular time line for the project.
Gunasekhar is going through a lean phase with all his three last releases (Sainikudu, Varudu, Nippu) termed as disasters at the Box Office.
Realizing the fact that a big hit alone could bring back his lost glory, the director has pinned all his hopes on Rudrama Devi and taking utmost care about every aspect of it. The pre-production work of the film is going to take several months and once it goes to the floors a minimum of 5-8 months work will go into the project. Hope Anushka brings the required good fortune for this senior filmmaker!
