No, we are not talking about Superstar Rajinikanth's 'Kochadaiyaan', in which Anushka Shetty is expected to play an important role. But about a movie to be made on 3D technology by popular Malayalam filmmaker Vinayan, inspired by a famous novel.
According to sources, the film titled 'Dracula 2012' is based on the novel by Bram Stoker and Vinayan wanted to have Anushka in the lead. The director was thoroughly impressed with the actress's performance in 'Arundhati', it is said.
So when Vinayan approached Anushka with the idea, she immediately expressed her interest to be part of the project. "But she has to work out on her dates as she is already committed more than half-a-dozen projects in Kollywood and Tollywood," say sources.
Vinayan's 'Dracula 2012' is tipped to made using state-of-the-technology. He is planning to make the movie simultaneously in Malayalam, Tamil, Telugu and Kannada, considering the actress's popularity in South India.
