Anu Emmanuel has been reportedly roped in to play a cameo in Vijay Devarakondaâ€™s upcoming film to be directed by Parasuram. Apparently, the filmmakers wanted to bring in a well known face for this particular cameo and finalised Anu to play the role.
The film, which has not been titled yet, is being bankrolled by Geetha Arts. The actor recently walked out of the Ravi Teja starrer which is being directed by Srinu Vaitla, giving rise to various speculations. However, she put an end to all rumours that she had to quit due to date clashes.
A source from the unit has told Deccan Chronicle, â€śItâ€™s a short and cute role. We needed an actress who was hot and happening and at the same time someone who had a strong connection with the youth. We found Anu Emmanuel to be the right choice. We are glad that she accepted the role.â€ť
