Leggy lass Anushka Shetty a.k.a. Anushka is one of the most sought-after heroines in Kollywood. Her height, though, hasn’t deterred her from signing up films opposite heroes who don’t match up to her height. After a successful outing in her latest flick ‘Vaanam’, Anushka is looking forward with huge optimism to the theatrical release of ‘Deiva Thirumagal’, her first film with ‘Chiyaan’ Vikram.
A busy-bee in Telugu films, Anushka has admitted that she is now looking to do more and more films in Tamil. She reveals that she is all set to pair up opposite the newly-wed Karthi in his upcoming untitled film which would be directed by Suraaj. Though she hasn’t yet inked the deal, she assures that she is ‘most likely’ to take up the offer.
A self-critic, Anushka candidly admits that she gained in more ways than one in reprising in ‘Vaanam’ the same role she played in the original Telugu film ‘Vedam’. “I know I committed a few errors in the Telugu film and was lucky to have ‘avoided’ those mistakes in the Tamil version of ‘Vaanam’, for which I got good reviews from the press and the audience. I’m quite happy about that,” says Anushka.
Said to be in the Re.1 crore bracket per film, it would take some courage for the producers and directors to sign up Anushka for their Tamil films. As and when she takes up the offer to star opposite Karthi, she would join Tamannaah and Kajal Aggarwal in a mini-league of actresses who have had the pleasure of working opposite both the brothers (Suriya and Karthi) in Tamil films!
