Ever since director Gunasekhar announced his ambitious historical drama, Rani Rudrama, speculations are rife as to who would play the title role.
Rani Rudrama Devi was one of the few ruling queens in Indian history.
While the film-nagar buzz is that it would be Nayanthara or Anushka, the director told the media that he would confirm it after everything is finalized officially.
Anushka who impressed everyone with her acting skills as Jejamma in Arundhati is reportedly the hot favourite she has the right physique for a warrior queen. But it all depends on her availability, dates and remuneration. Currently, Anushka is busy with her Tamil assignments.
Meanwhile, Nayanthara is also in the race for this role. After her portrayal of Goddess Sita in Sri Ramarajyam, filmmakers are of the opinion that she can now pull of any role with finesse.
So, it is almost a tie between Anushka and Nayanthara.
