Anu Emmanuel Career
After debuting at the age of 14 with Swapna Sanchari, the actress got back to studies for five years. And in 2016, she returned to the film industry as a lead heroine with the film Action Hero Biju in which she acted opposite to the Malayalam heartthrob Nivin Pauly. The film went on to become a super success and Anu was approached by many Mollywood filmmakers to cast her in their films. However, as no offered role was exciting as they fell on the similar lines of her character in Action Hero Biju, she moved to Telugu film industry and acted opposite Natural Star Nani in Majnu (2016).
Her Telugu debut turned a big hit garnering plenty of attention from the industry. Majnu was also dubbed and released in Malayalam and won same praise to become a hit at the Mollywood box-office. Delighted by the warm welcome by Tollywood, she signed a series of films in Telugu opposite big stars like Pawan Kalyan, Allu Arjun, and Gopichand.
To dig into details, post-Majnu success, Anu acted opposite emerging star Raj Tarun in the film Kittu Unnadu Jagratta that released in 2017. With this light-hearted entertainer, she bagged the third hit in a row after Action Hero Biju and Majnu. In the same year, impressed by her work, she got a call from Tamil film industry to star in acclaimed filmmaker Mysskin’s detective thriller Thupparivaalan. Anu made her Kollywood debut with Thupparivaalan in the role of Mallika. The movie went to become a huge box-office success and critics and audience highly praised Anu's performance.
Anu Emmanuel also got an offer from her favourite director Gautham Menon to play the female lead in his ambitious project Dhruva Natchathiram but she walked out of the project due to date clashes. However, with only one film in Kollywood, the actress shifted back to Hyderabad and started shooting for her long-signed project Oxygen in which she played the love-interest of Gopichand.
Around this time, she got a surprising offer to cherish all her life. She had been roped in to act opposite none other than Power Star Pawan Kalyan in his 25th film Agnyaathavaasi directed by Trvikram Srinivas. The movie performed fairly at the box-office. Anu then shared the screen with another hero from the Mega Family, Allu Arjun in the film Naa Peru Surya Naa Illu India, written and directed by Vakkantha Vamsi. The movie is dubbed in two more languages as En Peyar Surya En Veedu India (Tamil) and Ente Peru Surya Ente Veedu India (Malayalam).
