It is rumoured in Kollywood and Tollywood circles that actress Anushka has become very choosy in selecting her films.
The actress, still basking in the super-success of her latest film Baahubali 2, hasn’t yet signed up any new film though more than seven weeks have gone past since the film’s release. Anushka was the centre of controversy prior to the release of the Baahubali sequel as it was said that her inability to reduce her body weight made things tough for the film’s director S.S. Rajamouli.
The lanky actress, who has only a very few heroes matching up to her height, is said to have upped her fee per film to a whopping Rs.5 crores. Presently starring in another heroine-oriented film titled as Bhagmati, Anushka is said to have made it clear to her producers that she would be taking up offers to star in films only opposite frontline/leading heroes.
She is also said to have said ‘no’ to taking up the lead role in Sundar C’s upcoming mega-venture Sangamithra which recently saw Shruti Haasan walking out of it. Analysts point out that the fact that the film has two heroes in ‘Jayam’ Ravi and Arya might have made Anushka say ‘no’ to the offer!
