The title poster of the Madhavan and Anushka Shetty starrer Nishabdam is out and looks intriguing. The poster also points out that Anushka is completing 14 years in the film industry, which indicates that it will be a special film. The film is being directed by Hemant Madhukar and bankrolled by director Kona Venkat with Madhavan and Anushka Shetty in the lead roles. There are also reports that Michael Madsen of Kill Bill and Reservoir Dogs fame will be roped in for a pivotal role in the film and this has been confirmed recently. Sources in the know say that Nishabdam/Silence is a crossover movie and a silent film. It will be a unique attempt by the filmmaker.
The team had been shooting the film in various locations in the US as the story is set there. With the weather conditions being extreme and going to minus degrees, it will certainly be hard for the team to shoot.

The technical crew of Nishabdam / Silence includes Gopi Sunder for music and Shaneil Deo for cinematography. Nishabdam is a trilingual that will be released in Telugu, Tamil and English.
Apart from this film, Anushka plays a cameo in the Telugu film Sye Raa, which has Chiranjeevi in the lead role. Sye Raa is being bankrolled by Chiruâ€™s son and actor Ram Charan Teja under his home banner Konidela Production Company on a budget of Rs 200 crore. R.
