Anushka Shetty is undoubtedly one of the finest actresses of this generation in Tollywood. Her fame grew leaps and bounds with her strong female characters and also with her women centric films. Anushka’s portrayal as a queen Devasena in the Baahubali series was on a different level altogether.
It now looks like Anushka will be doing another strong female centric movie as her next project after Nishabdham. If the rumours going around are to be believed, Anushka will be seen in a biopic based on the life of Bangalore Nagarathnamma. An artist who lived in the pre independent India,under the British Raj, Nagarathnamma was one of the best contemporaries of her time in Carnatic music as well as being a learned scholar, and activist. Nagarathnamma established herself as one of the best Carnatic singers in a predominantly male society.
Furthermore, the rumours also suggest that ace filmmaker Singeetam Sreenivasa Rao would be directing the movie. According to reports,the ace director always had the thought to make a biopic on Nagarathnamma but could not proceed further as he was not able to find a suitable female lead for the role. However, it now looks like Sreenivasa Rao would zero in on Anushka Shetty.
Anushka Shetty will be seen in an upcoming thriller movie titled Nishabdham which is directed by Hemanth Madhukar. Kona Venkat and T.G. Vishwa Prasad are jointly producing Nishabdham. Michael Madsen,Anjali will be appearing in supporting roles while Anushka Shetty and Mdhavan will be seen in lead roles.
