A lesser-known fact about the reigning queen of Tollywood, Anushka Shetty, is that she was a Yoga teacher in Bengaluru before she signed her first film. Now you know the secret behind her enviable physique. While her success story is long and glorious, we bring you three films that you may have missed, which you shouldn’t really!
In Naagavalli, Anushka plays the titular character. A Bharatanatyam dancer who performs in the royal courts is a sight to behold. An evil king, played by Venkatesh, falls for her and is keen on owning Nagavalli at all costs, even if that means letting the love of her life die in front of her eyes. Another parallel story in the film sees Anushka as one of the four sisters affected by an old painting of Nagavalli in the present times. The rumour is that Nagavalli’s painting has brought evil spirit into the house. How she discovers the truth and deals with the situation is an interesting and gripping watch.
