Anushka, the alluring heroine of Singam fame will be paired opposite Ajith in his 50th film Mangatha. The lissome lass has been on a roll from the time she acted in Vettaikaran opposite Vijay. Singam opposite Suriya only increased her equity in the fickle industry. So it is only expected that she be cast opposite Ajith next. The film Mangatha is to be written and directed by Venkat Prabhu and produced by Dayanidhi Azhagiri. Though the producer and the director want Anushka to be in the film, Ajith is yet to give a nod. Going by past record, Ajith is known to be a noninterfering actor and Anushka it seems is the final choice of heroine for the film.
However, a source from Anushka’s camp says that her priority would always be Telugu films. And rightly so, since Anushka’s initial tryst with the Tamil film industry was not a successful one and she was forced to seek refuge in the Telugu film industry, which bestowed upon her the title of the most “beautiful and successful heroine” amongst the current crop.
