In 2017, the powerhouse called Anushka Shetty became the toast of T-town when she delivered an awesome performance in SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus ‘Baahubali 2’ and left the audience spellbound. Everything about her act—right from her regal look to her classy body language– seemed perfect and added a new dimension to the film. Furthermore, her crackling chemistry with her onscreen sweetheart Prabhas created a buzz amongst movie buffs.
Now, nearly a year after the release of ‘Baahubali 2’, Anushka is back to entertain fans once again. In an exciting development, her eagerly-awaited ‘Bhaagamathie’ is set to hit screens today. And, needless to say, it has created a buzz amongst fans. Directed by ‘Pilla Zamindar’ director G Ashok, it is touted to be an Anushka show all the way and features her in the role of an IAS officer. Jiudging by the trailer, her character will go through a massive transformation on the big screen. And, this kind of makes ‘Bhaagamathie’ an ideal platform for her to consolidate her lady superstar status even further. Interestingly, some fans have even drawn comparisons between ‘Bhaagamathie’ and ‘Arundhati’. However, the Shetty lady has made it clear both films are worlds apart as ‘Bhaagamathie’ is a completely contemporary tale.
“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 added.
Besides Anushlka, ‘Bhaagamathie’ also has Unni Mukundan, Asha Sarath and Mollywood veteran Jayaram in key roles. All these nameds are talented performers and could definitely add a new dimension to the film.
