Bhagmati, the new historical drama starring mighty Anushka Shetty is soon to go on the production floors. The film that is to be directed by Ashok of Pilla Zamindar fame holds great promises for audience in terms of script. Anushka, who had recently played the epic role of Devasena in S S Rajamouli will be seen playing a lofty prime protagonist in the film. However, the makers are faced with another great challenge despite of getting the main cast straight.
The makers have to now decide between two very important veteran ladies to play a super critical character in the film. The contest is running tight between Tabu and Nadhiya. Both being such accomplished actresses, the production team is finding it tad difficult to lock on the ultimate choice.
One thing is for sure. If Tabu comes into the role, she will look head to head with Anushka. Nadhiya, on the other hand is a seasoned actress who can turn the heads with her sheer screen presence and performance. Interestingly, Bhagmati is being produced by UV Creations, the same house that had produced the film Mirchi. Nadhiya played the role of Prabhas’ mom in the film that gained popularity.
Presently, director Ashok is busy with the finalizing of the rest of the cast and crew. Anushka will join the sets of Bhagmati effective 19th May and the movie will go in full swing with shooting.
