Anushka Shetty is one of the few actresses in South Indian film industry who has acted with most of the top actors. Besides being a part of big-ticket films, the Mangalore-born actress has also donned roles which were challenging and required her to do go through a lot of transformation. Arundhati, Rudramadevi and Baahubali are testimonials to fact that Anushka Shetty can get into the skin of a character like no one else. Director Rajamouli has a slightly different opinion about Anushka Shetty.
During the promotions of Baahubali 2, the director was speaking with media and said that Anushka Shetty is a decent actor but there are few other qualities in her which made him cast her as Devasena in Baahubali. “I admire Anushka’s professionalism. She is a very responsible artist and works hard for a film.”
Rajamouli heaped praises on Anushka and added, “For Baahubali, she had to train a lot and she did that without any questions asked. I was amazed looking at her zeal and excitement to learn new things. I don’t think no other actor has that feature which Anushka possesses. And that’s the reason I did not look at any option other than Anushka Shetty for the role of Devasena.”
We echo with Rajamouli on that! Looking at recent posters and the trailer of Baahubali 2, there is no doubt that Anushka Shetty was the right choice for the role of Devasena. These snippets are making the wait worth to watch the monumental Baahubali 2 on the big screens.
