After the humongous success of her latest outing Bhagamathiee, Anushka Shetty hadn’t signed any film and fans of the actor were eagerly to hear something about her films. And looks like Anushka has signed her next film which will be in Telugu. According to reports, Anushka Shetty has signed a film opposite Gopichand and the film will be directed by Jayendra who is currently directing Naa Nuvve starring Nandamuri Kalyanram and Tamannaah Bhatia. Reports also reveal that the film will be an action thriller and will be produced by Kiran Muppavarapu and Vijay who are also producing Jayendra’s Naa Nuvve.
“The actress has agreed to do the film. Shooting will begin once Gopichand wraps up his present commitments. It’s a commercial film; Gopichand and Anushka are being paired opposite each other after a long time,” Deccan Chronicle quoted a source. It is also being reported that Anushka Shetty has already started to prepare for her role in the film and has lost some weight.
Anushka Shetty, last seen in Bhagamathie, has been choosy in picking scripts post the humongous success of Baahubali which made her a PAN India star. Anushka Shetty was also supposed to make her debut in Bollywood but did not happen due to unknown reasons. However, speculations are high that she may appear in a Bollywood film in 2019.
It was also being reported that Anushka Shetty may be featured in the Telugu remake of Tamil film Naachiyaar which starred Jyothika and GV Prakash in lead roles and was directed by Bala. Reports were doing rounds that Naachiyaar could be remade in Telugu since the remake rights have already been purchased by Kalpana Koneru, a popular producer in Telugu cinema. Although the makers haven’t revealed yet, buzz in the film circles is that Anushka Shetty may be roped in to reprise the role of Jyothika in the Telugu remake of Naachiyaar, reason being Anushka Shetty is one of the superstars in Telugu cinema who has the market to pull crowds to cinema halls.
