Hyderabad: Much has been written and spoken about director
Gunasekhar's forthcoming movie Rudramadevi 3D, which is still in the
pre-production stage. The latest buzz is that actresses Nathalia
Kaur and Hamsa Nandini will essay the roles of sisters of Anushka
Shetty, who is playing the title role in the film. Now, experts
in the T-Town are surprised to hear the news as the pages of
history hardly have any hint about them.
It is well-known that the film Rudramadevi 3D revolves
around the story of Rudramadevi, who was the revered queen of the
Kakatiya dynasty in 13th century. There are no clue about
Rudramadevi's sisters in the history, but the makers say that this
queen had two cousins named Annambika and Madanika, and their movie
throws light on their characters too.
Reports suggest that Gunasekhar had recently held auditions for
the roles of Annambika and Madanika in Rudramadevi 3D and
20 popular heroines from Tollywood had taken part in it. The
director finalised Nathalia Kaur and Hamsa Nandini for these roles.
Nathalia will play Annambika, while Hamsa appears as Madanika.
These two actresses are all excited to be part of this mega-budget
However, Anushka Shetty will be seen as Rudhramadevi in this 3D
bilingual historic film, which is produced and directed by
Gunasekhar. Rana Daggubati, Prakash Raj and Krishnam Raju will play
other supporting roles. Ilaiyaraaja will compose soundtrack and
background score for the film, which will have Thotta Tharani's art
direction and Neeta Lulla's costumes.
