Glamour queen Anushka who is playing the lead in historical project ‘Rudrama Devi‘ managed to get an introduction scene on par with any of the A-list action heroes in the Industry. Director Gunasekhar has taken extra care in every aspect and designed a special introduction for the leggy lass that elevates her character to a next level.
In the opening sequence, Anushka in Rani Rudrama Devi getup will be seen riding a horse at full speed into a heavily populated area where people are running to save their lives from a wild elephant. The princess tames the huge animal single handedly and receives heaps of praise from the people.
Of course, the elephant fight sequence is something similar to that of Hrithik Roshan’s in the Bollywood film ‘Jodha Akhbar’, but this time with different actor and different setup.
As the film is a biopic of Kakatiya Dynasty ruler Rani Rudrama Devi, Anushka has learnt horse riding and sword wielding techniques to fight the rivals in the war-field sequences. From cast & crew to expensive sets to special episodes, every report about Rudrama Devi has been generating tremendous pre-release buzz. Seems like, the makers are leaving no stone unturned to make it a money spinner at the Box Office.
Anushka To Wear 5-Crore Jewellery!
The film’s crew has been shooting in historic locations for Rani Rudrama.
Costly sets have been erected and German technicians have been hired for Gunasekhar’s period drama.
Director and producer Gunasekhar is not sparing any expense and is getting the best of the talent for his costume drama.
The jewellery that Rani Rudrama will be wearing is being designed by Neeta Lulla. Lulla had earlier designed jewellery and costumes for Aishwaray Rai in Ashutosh Gowariker’s Jodha Akbar. And the estimated cost of jewellery for Rani Rudrama is Rs 5 crore.
Suman is the new entrant to the cast of the film, which will be India’s first ever 3D stereoscopic film. He will be playing Hara Hara Deva, who is an antagonist of sorts to Rani Rudrama.
The film also has Daggubati Rana, Prakash Raj, Krishnamraju and Baba Sehgal, etc, in the team.
