Anisha Singh hopes to hog limelight with ‘Beeruva’

Chennai, Dec 30 (IANS) Actress Anisha Singh, who was last seen in 2012 Telugu film “Ayyare”, has landed an important role in upcoming romantic-comedy “Beeruva”. Having almost disappeared for the last two years, she hopes to hog the limelight with the film.

“I started working on a Telugu film with Shivaji after ‘Ayyare’. But it got shelved for some reasons. Then I was offered ‘Beeruva’, and I was told that it was an interesting project. I thought I might as well do something to get recognised as an actress,” Anisha told IANS.
In Kanmani-directed “Beeruva”, Anisha plays a role with grey shades.
“I wouldn’t call it a negative character. It’s something that expected me to play dumb, stupid, sexy and slightly grey under some circumstances. It’s an exciting role and I really hope it gets me into the limelight,” she said.
She shares the screen space with Sundeep Kishan in the film.
“It was amazing working with Sundeep. It’s a wonderful learning experience to work with a young team. I finished shooting my portion in July,” she added.
Post “Ayyare”, Anisha did a lot of rethinking about her career.
“When I did ‘Ayyare’, I was just a newcomer. I didn’t have the right contacts nor knew anything about the industry. But I did that film thinking it was good. Unfortunately, it didn’t do well at the box-office. Because of which I wasn’t getting any offers,” she said.
“I did get a few offers to play the second heroine but I really wasn’t interested. We all know what happens to actresses who end up playing the second lead. When ‘Beeruva’ was finally offered, I told myself let me do this even though it’s a brief role,” she added.
