Tollywood
The film is being directed by Hemant Madhukar.

Anuhska Shetty’s upcoming film Silence is a cross-over film that will have Hollywood star Michael Madsen in an important role. The film will have R Madhavan playing the male lead with Anushka Shetty as his lead pair. Hemant Madhukar is wielding the megaphone for this venture.

Reports are that the Silence team will be flying down to the US in March and shoot a major portion of the film there. With the weather conditions being extreme and going to minus degrees, it will certainly be difficult for the team to shoot. However, the director is planning on shooting the film in those harsh conditions to get the best visuals effects.

Besides Anushka Shetty, the star cast will also include Anjali and Shalini Pandey in pivotal roles. The film will be bankrolled by Kona Venkat and People Media Factory’s TG Vishwaprasad jointly.

It may be noted here that Hemant Madhukar made his directorial debut in 2010 with A Flat and had directed Vastadu Naa Raju, and Mumbai 125 KM so far. This is the first time he is associating with R Madhavan and Anushka Shetty.

While Madhavan is busy with Rocketry: the Nambi Effect, which will also mark his directorial debut, he also has a number of projects needing his attention including the web series Breathe 2. Maddy will be playing the rocket scientist Nambi Narayanan. A lot of research has gone into this project, we hear.

On the other hand, Anushka Shetty will be focusing solely on Silence. It may be mentioned here that Anushka is one of the most wanted heroines in the film industry with her performance in Arundathi, Rudramadevi and Baahubali speaking volumes of her acting skills. Her role in Silence is also expected to be performance-oriented.
