Yesteryear legendary director Singeetam Srinivasa Rao is coming up with a biopic on Nagarathnamma - an Indian Carnatic singer, activist, and scholar, and courtesan. Set in the pre-Independence era, the film chronicles the life and times of Nagarathnamma, and talented actress Anushka Shetty is in talks to play the role. As Anushka is a game for such unique characters and gave her best in her earlier films, the director feels that she is the only actor who can do justice to that role. However, Sweety is yet to sign the project. Meanwhile, after a brief hiatus, Anushka is coming up with a cross-over film Nishabdam which will hit the screens soon.
