Tollywood actress Anushka Shetty is basking in the glory of the astronomical success of the 2017 film Baahubali 2: The Conclusion, even after a year of the film's release. The SS Rajamouli magnum opus catapulted Shetty to the league of the biggest stars in the Telugu film industry. Her latest outing Bhaagamathie was also a major success at the box office.

Now it is reported that Shetty has been approached to star in the Telugu remake of Jyothika-starrer Tamil blockbuster Naachiyaar, where the latter was seen in the role of a tough cop.

According to a report by The Indian Express, Kalpana Koneru, the producer of the film has bought the rights for the Telugu remake and he has reportedly offered Jyothika's part to Shetty.

Shetty has emerged to be an actor tailormade to anchor women-driven films and portray strong female characters. Her brief-yet-much-effective stint in the Baahubali saga as Devasena is still etched in the minds of cinephiles. Earlier, she has also done films like Rudhramadevi and Arundhati which were also centralised around her character.

 Naachiyaar — that released in February — revolved around Jyothika's character who gets into investigating a sexual harassment case and in turn opens up a pandora's box.

The film was Jyothika's first collaboration with director Bala and the cast included the likes of GV Prakash Kumar, Ivana and Rockline Venkatesh to name a few who were seen in pivotal supporting parts.
