Lady Superstar Anushka Shetty was last seen in the hit film Bhaagamathie, under the direction of G. Ashok. With actors like Unni Mukundan and Asha Sarath in crucial roles, this film was produced under the UV Creations banner. Anushka stunned us with her performance as Bhaagamathie in this horror thriller.
It is now revealed, Anushka was approached to play the role of yesteryear actress Dr. Bhanumati! Nag Ashwin is making a biopic on the life of legendary actress Savitri, titled Mahanati. This film features Keerthy Suresh, Samantha Akkineni and Dulquer Salmaan in the lead roles. The Mahanati director approached Anushka to play Bhanumati who was also a popular filmmaker. However, Anushka is yet to give her confirmation for this project.
It would be interesting to watch Anushka’s transformation from Bhaagamathie to playing Dr. Bhanumati in Mahanati!
