A year ago everyone thought that Anushka is at the fag end of her career. She was out of Telugu film industry for a while and most of her movies didn’t do well during that time. Young heroines like Samantha and Tamanna took over the top slots, but Anushka bounced back with Mirchi.
Now there is no looking back for her.
Anushka is turning out to be the one and only choice for films with historic backdrop. She is already doing Baahubali and Rudrama Devi movies at the moment. Baahubali’s budget estimate is over Rs. 80 crore and Rudrama Devi is also a Fifty crore film. Now one more historical film has been bagged by her.
Mirchi producers are going to produce a film titled Bhagmathi, with historic backdrop. Anushka will play the lead role in it. This film will be directed by Ashok of Pilla Zamindar fame. Bhagmathi‘s budget estimate is over Rs. 40 crore given the magnitude of the project.
Producers seem fully convinced that Anushka has the potential and crowd pulling power equal to any superstar.
