It is known that Anushka is not showing interest in doing regular glamorous heroine roles of late. She wants meaty characters or stories that revolve around her character. She is finally impressed with one such story, say Tollywood sources.
Anushka recently watched Jyothika's "Naachiyaar" and was impressed with the role that Jyothika played in the movie.
Jyothika played the role of a tough cop in the film. Directed by Bala, it won good praise and also did decent business.
It was director Bala who reportedly suggested to the Telugu producers to remake it in Telugu with Anushka as it would suit her image best.
Anushka has not played a lady cop in her career. So she's excited to remake it in Telugu, the sources added. Currently discussions are at primary stage.
Anushka has not signed any movie after the release of 'Bhaagamathie" that went on to become a big hit early this year.
Anushka gained a lot of weight and has failed in her attempts to lose flab. That is one of the reasons why she is not showing much interest in doing glam roles.
