According to the latest reports, Anushka Shetty’s latest release ‘Bhaagamathie’ has managed to hold its own at the US box office and proved to be a clear winner. Released on the special occasion of R-day, the film has collected close to Rs 5 crore in just four days and served as strong proof of Anushka’s lady superstar status. The favourable reviews received by ‘Bhaagamathie’ seem to have helped its commercial prospects in a big way. It will be worth watching if the film is able to continue its good run at the box office in the days to come.
In case you did not know, ‘Bhaagamathie’ has been directed by ‘Pilla Zamindar’ director G Ashok and features the Shetty lady in a shocking new avatar. Its supporting cast includes Unni Mukundan, Jayaram and Asha Sarath. Prior to its release, Anushka had said that it is not a ghost film and neither does it feature her in a double role.
“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.
Similarly, G Ashok had said that ‘Bhaagamathie’ cannot be put into any one genre.
“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,” he had told a leading website.
