Star actress Anushka Shetty took a break from acting for more than a year to reduce her weight. The actress underwent physical training for many months and got back in to perfect shape now. Recently, she has also started hearing out a new script. Currently, she is working on a film called Silence, directed by Hemanth Madhukar.
Meanwhile, the latest buzz suggests that Anushka is prepping up to team up with renowned cinematographer Santosh Sivan for his next film. This movie will be based on the story of Lord Ayyappa. Apparently, Santosh asked Anushka to play a key role in the devotional drama.
Santosh had earlier directed critically acclaimed films like The Terrorist and Urumi. The shoot of this movie is expected to go on floors either in August or September. Oscar-winning composer AR Rahman will score music for it. Sri Gokulam Gopalan will produce it in Malayalam, Telugu, Hindi and Tamil.
