Southern filmmaker Sekhar Kammula, who is currently working with actress Nayantara in bilingual Anamika, a Telugu and Tamil remake of Kahaani, is in awe of her commitment. The popular actress is so uncompromising that she even said no to a body double for a stunt sequence.
Sekhar Kammula told IANS, "Initially, when she was roped in
there was a little apprehension about her commitment in the
industry, but she proved all that wrong with her uncompromising
commitment." He added, "I still remember once when we were

While Anamika is the Telugu version, the film is titled
Nee Enge En Anbe in Tamil. It is jointly produced by Endemol India
and Logline Productions. Sekhar Kammula says "We were required to
shoot a risky stunt sequence and we were thinking of hiring a body
double. Nayantara intervened and said that she will do it on her
own. She pulled off the stunt on her own and her hard work is
evident in every frame," he said.
