Hot and sexy Anushka has not been in news in Tollywood circuit these days as she is busy with Kollywood assignments. Anushka have half a dozen Tamil films on her hand at the moment. She is the highest paid and leading actress in Tamil cinema as of now. She has a couple of Telugu films to release this year. She is the heroine in Nagarjuna’s Dhamarukam and Prabhas’s Varadhi.
If the buzz is to be believed, Anushka has struck gold with one of her latest assignments. She has been zeroed in to do the lead role in South remake of Kahaani. She will essay the role of Vidya Balan in this film. It will be made in Telugu and Tamil. The makers offered her 2 crore rupees to do this film. With this deal Anushka becomes the first heroine from South to take 2 crores for one film.
Anushka’s popularity in Tamil and Telugu languages is the reason for Kahaani makers to approach her for this role and also to spend so much on her. Anushka’s star power was proven with Arundhati film, which went on to collect around 35 crores in Telugu alone. Arundhati’s Tamil version was also a good hit. Hence, paying her 2 crore is not a big deal.
