Nishabdham, the latest suspense thriller of Amazon Prime Video is receiving good reviews for Anushka’s character of a deaf and mute girl, who becomes a prime witness to an incident at a villa, which is well known for being haunted. Director Hemanth Madhukar shares how Anushka prepared for her character with utmost perfection.
Anushka Shetty’s character was immensely praised. Director Hemant Madhukar said that she worked hard to play her character in Nishabdham and had to learn painting followed by two types of sign language. “Anushka learned painting & two types of sign languages”, reveals director Hemanth Madhukar for Nishabdham.
The director reveals, “Anushka learned sign language and when I narrated the script to her as a painter in the film. She didn’t want to be an actor who’s all of a sudden holding a brush in the film. She wanted to look professional (sic.)”
The director further added, “I like her involvement for her character. She learned painting and two types of sign languages, one is Indian and another is international, she pointed it out and asked me which one she should learn. I told her to learn both. In the film, she has to communicate with the American and the Indian actors too (sic.)”
The research and involvement Anushka has put into her character is commendable and shows her dedication towards her craft. Her on-screen presence was promising and her hard work paid off.
