Talk is that Anushka is preparing for another historical role. And if everything goes as per plan, she will be playing the role of Bhagmati, the courtesan-lover of Hyderabad’s ruler who built Hyderabad.
Though Anushka was offered the role in the past, she was not very keen on doing it. But following the success of Baahubali, Anushka has given her nod to the project.
Also, her Baabubali co-star Prabhas is said to have convinced Anushka to change her mind.
Prabhas’s friends Pramod and Vamsi who own UV Creations have come forward to produce this film and it will be directed by Ashok Kumar.
Talk is that Anushka was not too sure about Ashok Kumar’s directorial abilities, but Prabhas is said to have convinced her that the production house will take care of it. After having gained confidence from Prabhas, Anushka is now taking up this role.
The film will formally be launched next year. Legend has it that Quli Qutb Shah, the emperor of Deccan built Hyderabad city for Bhagmati which is why it is also called Bhagyanagaram.
