After Baahubali, Anushka was roped in the movie Bhagmati, a Tamil and Telugu historical thriller film. This movie directed by G. Ashok features Jayaram, Anushka Shetty and Aadhi Pinisetty in the lead roles. Though this movie made it to the news quite often, makers managed to wrap up the shooting of this movie without releasing even a single glimpse. Bhagmati is currently in the post production phase.
This movie was set to release in the month of August 2017. However, due to delay in VFX work, the release date has been pushed to October. Bhagmati is made on a budget of Rs 19 crores and the pre-release business has been closed. Makers of Bhagmati managed to pocket a total of Rs 40 crores even before the release of the first look poster.
Anushka Shetty rose to fame across the nation after the success of Baahubali. As a result, the Hindi rights of Bhagmati alone have been sold for Rs 12.5 crores and that is HUGE. It did a decent business across the Telugu speaking states as well. This movie is produced under UV Creations banner and the music credits go to S.S. Thaman.
Wishing the gorgeous Anushka Shetty and the entire team of Bhagmati all the very best for their upcoming film!
