Top Heroine Booked for 5 Months
Anushka is one actress who is capable of carrying an entire film on her shoulders and her past films have proved the same. Every time a director visualizes about a women centric film, the first name that comes to his/her mind is that of this long legged lass. That's the impact she has created with the magnum opus Arundathi.
Coming to the upcoming period film Rudrama Devi set in the 13th century, Gunasekhar who is wielding the mega phone has blocked the dates of Anushka for a period of 5 months. The mandatory condition in the contract that she shouldn't sign any other new projects until she wraps up the shooting of this film indicates that the director hasn't set any particular time line for the project.
Gunasekhar is going through a lean phase with all his three last releases (Sainikudu, Varudu, Nippu) termed as disasters at the Box Office. Realizing the fact that a big hit alone could bring back his lost glory, the director has pinned all his hopes on Rudrama Devi and taking utmost care about every aspect of it. The pre-production work of the film is going to take several months and once it goes to the floors a minimum of 5-8 months work will go into the project. Hope Anushka brings the required good fortune for this senior filmmaker!
