In an exciting development, her latest release ‘Bhaagamathie’ has fared extremely well at the US box office and cemented her standing as T-town’s most bankable lady superstar. According to a leading trade analyst, ‘Bhaagamathie’—which hit screens on Friday– has collected close to Rs 3.44 cr in two days and is still going strong at the box office. Given the favourable reviews and Anushka’s popularity, one can expect the film’s collection to be even better in the days to come. All in all, the Shetty lady has added yet another successful film to her name. Way to go!
In case you did not know, ‘Bhaagamathie’ has been directed by ‘Pilla Zamindar’ director G Ashok and features Anushka in a shocking new avatar. The film’s supporting cast includes names such as Jayaram, Unni Mukundan and Asha Sarath. Prior to its release, fans had drawn comparisons between it and ‘Arundhati’. However, Anushka had dismissed these rumours and made it clear the two films are quite different from one another. She had also said that she plays an IAS officer in ‘Bhaagamathie’.
“A few have misconstrued it as a ghost movie with a reincarnation theme. But it is a contemporary thriller and she is only a fictitious character. I play an IAS officer Sanjana, which is one of the most thought-provoking characters I have ever done. There was plenty of scope for performance, thanks to director Ashok garu who waited for me with the script from 2012,” she had told a leading daily.
On a related note, Anushka has not signed any new films since ‘Baahubali 2’ and it will be worth watching which project she gives the nod to next.
