Mumbai girl Anuya Bhagwat makes it big down south in Shankar’s Tamil remake of ‘3 Idiots’. She has the eyes that can kill but mind you, can heal a million souls! Her smile may remind you of Madhuri Dixit but her versatility as a female lead in Tamil films may evoke memories of Vidya Balan. Anuya is beginning 2012 with the biggest and the best names in Tamil cinema in ‘Robot’ director Shankar’s next film, NANBAN, the Tamil remake of Rajkumar Hirani’s ‘3 Idiots’. She is the only Maharashtrian after superstar Rajnikanth to act in ace director Shankar’s film.
During the music launch of the film held in Coimbatore, Anuya was the only actress to share the dais with Tamil superstars such as Vijay, Jeeva, Srikanth, Satyan and Satyaraj.
Multifaceted actress Anuya says, “On the first day of NANBAN’s shoot, Shankar Sir appreciated my performance in my debut film SMS and this appreciation was greater than any other award that I could have won! No wonder he cast me for this important performance based role without any audition. It’s a great privilege to be part of the film and the climax of Shankar Sir’s most eagerly awaited blockbuster of this year. I’m sure NANBAN will be a turning point in my life.”
