Though she is herself a former yoga instructor, she has been taking regular martial arts lessons for her character in this period film. Her Bad Boy with Karthik is also releasing in Telugu. The Tamil version of this movie features Anushka and Alex Pandian. She has done few stunts on the top of a train which were very risky and that too without using any substitute. In fact, the sources have revealed that the continous physical training is affecting her health but she does not seem to be concerned at all.
Anushka is famous for her glamorous avatar with characters in most of her films like ‘Super’, ‘Vikramarkudu’, ‘King’, ‘Billa’. She has also essayed performance-oriented characters in ‘Arundhati’, ‘Vedam’, ‘Nagavalli’ and others.
She is all set to feature in the Telugu remake of Kahaani to be directed by Sekhar Kammula. If rumours are to be believed, she is also being considered for another periodical movie with Prabhas which is to be directed by SS Rajamouli.
