Chennai, Sep 7 (IANS) Actress Anu Emmanuel, who has three upcoming Telugu projects in her kitty, says she considers herself to be extremely lucky to have been flooded with offers even without a single release to her credit yet.
“It feels special that I have been signed on for three projects even without a single release. How many newcomers are blessed with so many opportunities? I feel extremely lucky to have been flooded with offers,” Anu told IANS.
Doesn’t she feel she might have signed these projects in a hurry?
“All the three films were offered around the same time. Moreover, most heroines nowadays are simultaneously working on three to four projects. Hence, I didn’t have any problems signing these films in quick succession,” he said.
Among the three films, Anu’s first release will be Nani-starrer “Majnu”, which is slated to hit the screens on September 16.
“It’s a feel-good romantic entertainer. You’re assured it will leave you with a smile on your face when you walk out of the theater after watching it. Unlike the story of the real Majnu, this one is very different and far more entertaining,” she said.
In the film, directed by Virinchi Varma, Anu plays a village belle.
“The makers liked the innocence of my character from my Malayalam film ‘Action Hero Biju’, and felt I’d be apt for the role in ‘Majnu’. It’s a challenging character because I don’t get to speak much and had to emote through my eyes,” she explained.
Anu, who thoroughly enjoyed working on the project, found a support system in her co-star Nani.
“The way he gets involved in a character is amazing. He helped whenever I found difficulty learning the dialogues. He was my strongest support system. We had so much fun shooting together. It’s sad that the film got wrapped up so quickly,” she rued.
In Gopichand-starrer “Oxygen”, Anu will be seen playing a doctor, and she is also part of Raj Tarun’s yet-untitled film.
