It is official now! Jejamma
Anushka will be playing Rani Rudrama Devi in Guna Sekhar's next historical venture.
The filmmaker, who announced the news on Tuesday that is today, says,
"This is my dream venture, because I have been working on the story for
the last ten years."
When asked what cause him to take up a big project like this, he says,
"The success of Arundathi and Eega at the box-office had sustained my
confidence. These films have proved that a movie can be creating history at the
box-office without having a crazy star in the cast. You just need a pleasant strong
story that is put together creatively. That is what causes me to go ahead with
this venture which we will launch in Feb 2013. Right now we are in
Barring being shot in 3D format and maestro Ilaiyaraja is providing the soundtrack,
another interesting fact about the movie is that designer Neeta Lulla is
designing the costumes for this historical movie. "I liked her work in
historical films like Sahrukh’s Devdas and Hritik Rosan’s Jodha Akbar. When I describe
the story to her, she immediately gave her signal," says Guna Sekhar.
