“I will not wield sword for a while…” said Anushka. However, such character roles seem to follow her forever. Varna, Rudramadevi, Baahubali – they all belong to the same genre. In spite of focusing on commercial entertainers, she is getting only women-centric roles. According to the latest buzz, one more historical movie fell in her lap.
Yes, Anushka has been roped in to enact the role of Bhagmati – Hindu wife of Hyderabad sultan Quli Qutub Shah. According to historians, Hyderabad’s original name Bhagyanagar was named after Bhagmati and as such she holds a special place in the history of Hyderabad.
UV creations of Mirchi fame will be producing this movie. Anushka is currently busy with the shooting of Rudramadevi, which will be completed by April, 2014 followed by Bhagmati hitting the sets. The director and the ensemble cast are yet to be finalized.
