After her impeccable act in the recently released woman-centric film Bhaagamathie, lady superstar Anushka Shetty is gearing up to essay yet another compelling role very soon.
Telugu360 has exclusively learnt that Anushka has been roped in to play the role of yesteryear actress and popular singer Bhanumathi Ramakrishna in Mahanati, a biopic which chronicles the life of Savitri.
Bhanumathi is a contemporary of Savitri. She played a prominent part in the filmy career of Savitri and the makers of Mahanati have decided to cast Anushka for the role. The Bhaagamathie actress will be seen in a brief yet powerful role in this biopic which features Keerthi Suresh, Samantha Akkineni, Dulquer Salmaan and Vijay Devarakonda.
Nag Aswin is directing this bilingual film which is being produced by Aswini Dutt.
