Anushka Shetty is arguably one of the most popular stars in the Telugu film industry today. And, earlier this year, she gave strong proof of her abilities as a performer when she delivered a feisty performance in ‘Baahubali 2 – The Conclusion’. In the epic drama, she essayed the role of the brave and beautiful Devasena and left us asking for more. Everything about her act—right from her body language to her chemistry with Prabhas seemed to be perfect and worked wonders for the film. Now, there is some more good news for her fans.
In an exciting development, the official teaser of her next big release ‘Bhaagamathie’ has been released and it is quite terrific. The nearly 37-second-long teaser has an eerie feel to it and is bound to give us goosebumps. The teaser also gives a glimpse of Anushka’s shocking new avatar and leaves us stunned. If this is anything to go by, ‘Bhaagamathie’ could indeed turn out to be a delight for movie buffs.
In case you did not know, ‘Bhaagamathie’ has been directed by G Ashok and will hit screens on Republic Day 2018. Besides Anushka, it also features Unni Mukundan and Jayaram in the lead. Sometime ago, Unni Mukundan had said that working on ‘Bhaagamathie’ was a terrific experience for him.
“I confess that it was a beautiful ride all the way long with one of the most beautiful girl that I have ever interacted with. A beauty which is not skin deep. A wonderful soul. It was lovely knowing you and working with you. I rather keep it short, because for some reason I don’t find words good enough to share my excitement,” he added.
Speaking about the film. G Ashok had said that it does not fall into ant one category as it features a layered narrative.
“It’s neither a biopic or nor a period drama with fantasy elements. It’s a thriller, though I wouldn’t confine it to just one genre. There are a lot of other exciting factors too in the screenplay. We will reveal more information in the teaser. The shooting of Bhaagamathie was wrapped up in July, and the post-production is on in full swing since the film has a lot of visual effects. It’s a contemporary thriller,” he told a leading website.
Interestingly, recently, an industry insider had told a leading website that the ‘Bhaagamathie’ trailer will be a treat for fans and added that the film will be different from anything Anushka has done in the past.
“This is nothing like what you have seen Anushka Shetty do before. She is a revelation. The character she plays gives her ample scope to reveal her unseen side on the big screen. She will impress you and also give you goosebumps with her performance. To complement her, Bhaagamathie has a gripping story. Get ready to be awed,” the source added.
On a related note, Anushka has also been in the limelight of late because of her rumoured affair with T-town’s resident heartthrob Prabhas. Speaking on it, ‘Darling’ actor rubbished these rumours and said that they were baseless.
“When we first worked together we had decided that at no cost we would allow rumours of our link-up float around. We have been film friends for nine years now. We are very good friends. We have known each other for years but I admit sometimes when such stories start doing the rounds, then I too start wondering if there is, indeed, something between us. We know that we are not romantically involved. By the way, this is nothing new — when an actress works with an actor in more than one film, then people tend to make them a pair,” Prabhas had told a daily.
