Anushka Shetty’s performance as Devasena in Baahubali 2 caught the attention of many filmmakers, not just at the national level, but international level too. The Baahubali actress was flooded with offers in Bollywood but so far nothing has materialised. Filmmaker E. Niwas had roped in Anushka Shetty for one of his films which would have marked the debut of Anushka Shetty in Bollywood. But unfortunately, that project has been postponed due to unknown reasons.

Niwas spoke to a leading daily recently regarding this and revealed more details about why Anushka Shetty’s Bollywood debut film was delayed. “That movie is not happening right now. It’s is about a juvenile and has to have a newcomer. We couldn’t work around both these things. The budgets couldn’t be worked out either,” said Niwas.

Anushka Shetty, now a popular name in Bollywood circles, has done a varied range of roles in her career so far but her character Devasena in Baahubali stands as the highlight of her career. “Anushka is now a star all over India and not just down south. It would be a great experience to work with her. Right now, the project is on a backburner,”Niwas added further.

Anushka Shetty has quite a few films in her kitty in Telugu one of them being Bhagmati. Touted to be a thriller, the film has Aadi Pinisetty in the lead role and is being directed by Pilla Zamindar director G. Ashok. The principal shoot of Bhagmati commenced in June 2016 but since then there has been no news regarding the progress of the shooting.

    The pic above is from a movie “size zero” in which she played as an overweight lady so she gained weight for it! And by the way she perfects her character in whatever film she signs. If physical feature matters more than the acting of an actress, it’s a known fact ! (you don’t have to watch .. why bother? )

    She should definitely do a Bollywood film, but even better, she should dub in her own voice. I’m sure she can speak the language, and unlike the South, I’m sure the Hindi audiences don’t like it when someone else’s voice accompanies the heroine’s performance.
