The movie industry is a rapidly changing scenario where the cost of being successful is very high and all it takes to fail is one bad movie. We have seen new actors and actresses trying to make their mark in the movie industry but only a few of them rarely make their way to the top. It takes exceptional talent and sheer determination to succeed and Anushka Shetty is one such actress of a rare calibre who has managed to reach all the way to the top of the ladder and managed to stay there for a very long time.
As Anuskha Shetty successfully completes 15 years in the movie industry, one could only but wonder how she has managed to accomplish the task that many other artists could only dream of. The easy answer would be she is lucky, but movie industry critics and movie buffs know that is not the case. Anushka Shetty is a talent that appears once in a blue moon and is a classic case of beauty with brains.
When Anushka Shetty made her debut with Super, where she starred alongside Nagarjuna, she had no contacts in the industry and no famous family name to get her to be introduced by a famous director or producer. But Anushka shone in Super, by portraying a robber and a motor bike rider for which she earned a nomination for Filmfare Award For Best Supporting Actress-South. Anushka made sure she was noticed and was cast in a Rajamouli film, Vikramarkudu. But Anushka’s biggest breakthrough came with Arundhati, a fantasy horror movie in which she plays a dual role and the solo lead. Anushka’s performance in Arundhati won her the prestigious Nandi Special Jury Award.
Over the years Anushka has managed to carefully choose her movies and has starred in several blockbuster films. Anushka was widely applauded by critics for playing the role of an escort in Vedam, in which her character asks deep moral questions that made the viewers reflect and question morality. Anushka’s crowning achievement perhaps came with Rajamouli’s magnum opus Baahubali, where she plays the role of a proud warrior princess and queen Devasena. With this Anushka managed to cement her place at the top as the highest paid South Indian Actress. All these years Anushka has managed to do this without being associated with a single scandal or controversy.
Anushka Shetty is pushing the boundaries of her acting by choosing experimental roles. Anushka will be seen as a mute artist in the upcoming movie Nishabdham and it will be really interesting to see how she will pull it off.
Anushka, the Lady Superstar of South Indian cinema, is a gift to the movie industry and one we should cherish. As Anushka completes 15 years in the movie industry, there will be no doubt that she will be remembered forever as she immortalized her name on the silver screen.
We at Telugu Filmnagar wish Anushka Shetty a hearty congratulations for her milestone and sincerely hope to see more scintillating performances from her in the future.
