Anushka made her Tamil debut in Madhavan starrer Rendu in 2006. The critically acclaimed C.Sundar's film earned good name for the actress. But it did not fetch any big project in Tamil. It was actor Vijay's Vettaikkaran in 2009, which brought her into the limelight. Though the movie failed at the box-office, her performance in the film was praised by critics. Soon after the film, she bagged a role in Surya's Singam, which has become a super hit movie in 2010.
However, the Vikram-Vijay combo movie is reportedly titled Deva Magan. The director has completed pre-production work and the film will go on floors by the next month. G.V. Prakash Kumar will be scoring music and Nirav Shah will handle the camera.
