Industry buzz is that Anushka Shetty has signed another big Tollywood movie despite her weight issues.
She has been struggling to shed her weight from long time. Hence, filmmakers are not approaching her to play the glamorous roles. She is mostly now signing historical dramas or heroine-oriented movies.
As per reports, Anushka has now agreed to essay the role of yesteryear's actress Jamuna. Jamuna enjoyed the number 2 position in South Indian film industry in 1960's. Savitri was the number one actress then.
Director Naga Ashwin is all set to launch the biopic of Savitri with the name "Maha Nati" in Telugu and Tamil languages and he has signed Keerthy Suresh for the lead role.
Samantha is said to be playing the role of a journalist. Jamuna's role in the biopic of Savitri is not lengthy one. Hence Anushka has agreed to do the cameo character for the sake of Ashwini Dutt who is producing the movie.
