Anushka Shetty’s Bhaagamathie to release on Republic Day

SNS | New Delhi |

Rajinikanth starrer 2.0‘s release was recently postponed and that made way for Anushka Shetty’s upcoming thriller Bhaagamathie.

The film, which made headlines for its intriguing first poster featuring Shetty, will now be releasing on Republic Day next year. The official announcement was made on Twitter by UV Creations, who had until now kept the release date under wraps.

They took to Twitter to write, “#Bhaagamathie Releasing Worldwide On Jan 26th 2018 #BhaagamathieOnJan26th.”

The movie which will be releasing in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi has been directed by Ashok of Pilla Zamindar fame.

The acclaimed South actress had read the script of this film 5 years back in 2012, but she took her time to come on board as she was occupied with back-to-back releases. She was also seen in S S Rajamouli’s Baahubali, which went on to becoming the highest ever grosser of all times and broke many records at the box office. Anushka Shetty had to put on some weight to look like a healthy princess in the film; however, she had to shed all those extra kilos to get into a zero figure for Bhaagamathie.

It was earlier reported that Shetty would seen playing a double role in the film, but these rumours were declared baseless by the director himself.

Let’s wait and watch if this film of Shetty’s is able to garner as much attention as Baahubali.
