Telugu actress Anushka Shetty is gearing up for her next film, a thriller titled Silence. The film is soon going on the floors and the rumours are rife that it features actor Rana Daggubati. If the latest media reports have anything to go by, then the Baahubali stars might just be seen together on screen once again. Various reports suggest that Rana has given his nod to do a special cameo in Silence. It is also believed that the same role was earlier offered to Prabhas, who was paired opposite Anushka in the blockbuster Baahubali series. However, his busy schedule didn’t allow him to take up the role and now, Rana will be seen with Anushka for a brief moment in Silence.

The film features R Madhavan in the lead role opposite Anushka. The two have earlier worked together in Rendu. Silence is slated to hit the screens during Independence Day this year.

Meanwhile, the makers are trying their best to begin the shoot as planned. It’s a silent thriller film which is being majorly shot in Seattle. However, the team is also looking for suitable places to shoot the film in India as well. It is going on the floors in March, as scheduled.

Earlier, India Today reported that Hollywood actor Michael Madsen will be seen playing the role of an antagonist in Silence. He is best known for his performance in the popular English film Kill Bill. Apart from Anushka, Rana, Madhavan, and Madsen, Silence also features actors Shalini Pandey, Anjali and Subbaraju in important roles.

Reportedly, Anushka has lost a lot of weight for her role in the film. The grapevine is abuzz with the rumours of the actress following a strict detox programme in Austria. She will soon be seen in another Telugu film, titled Rampachodavaram, which is slated to hit the screens in August this year.
