It is almost over a decade since Anushka Shetty made her debut in Tollywood and Kollywood. She is one of the few well known actresses in the industry, who can pull off the female centric roles with great ease and elegance. After the release of Arundathi, she got overnight stardom and became a super star. With the humongous success of Baahubali: The Beginning, she became the reigning queen of Telugu Cinema.
In a recent interview, Anushka opened up about how people used to caution her after the success of Arundathi. “No one wants me to do the role of a prostitute in Krish’s Vedam, as it might spoil my fame, which I acquired with Arundathi.”
Anushka added that she likes to do films that are close to her heart and doesn’t follow what people say bluntly. She also revealed that Rudramadevi and Baahubali series are few among them. Anushka is one such heroine who never stepped back from doing challenging roles. One other brilliant example is the movie, Size Zero. She put on up to 20 kilos just to justify her role in the film. Not many actresses would come forward to take up such a challenging task. Way to Go Anushka! Keep inspiring us with your versatility and talent!
