Actor Anjali, who is busy promoting her upcoming release Sindhubaadh, recently returned from Seattle, USA where she completed shooting the first schedule of upcoming multilingual thriller Silence, which also stars R Madhavan, Anushka Shetty, Shalini Pandey and Hollywood actor Michael Madsen in important roles. 

In her latest media interaction, Anjali has revealed she plays an US-based cop in Silence in which Anushka Shetty plays a mute and deaf character and Madhavan plays her husband. Tipped to be an investigative thriller, the film will be centered around the murder of a key character and the subsequent investigation.

Talking about the experience of playing a cop for the first time in her career, Anjali said that the role required her to put in a lot of effort. “Unlike the cop roles we play in Indian films, this role required me take special classes to understand how cops behave and work in the US. From their body language to the way they speak and hold their guns, it was all a very new experience and I really enjoyed prepping for this character,” she said during a media interaction.

The entire film will be shot in Seattle and Madhavan and Anushka are expected to join the second schedule which will begin early July. Anjali also revealed that the makers plan to release the film in English as well as it features around 60 percent of international actors.

Originally being shot in Tamil and Telugu, the makers also plan to release the film in Hindi, Malayalam and Kannada. The film, being directed by Hemant Madhukar, is titled Nishabdam in Telugu.  

In Sindhubaadh, Anjali reunites with Vijay Sethupathi for the second time after Iraivi. Spilling some beans about her role, she said that it’s a role that’s quite different from anything she’s played so far. She also revealed that her role required her to indulge in some action sequences in the second half. Sindhubaadh that was scheduled to hit the screens on June 21 has been postponed due to a financial tussle between its producer and another production house.
