Directed by Hemant Madhukar, Silence also stars R. Madhavan, Anjali, Shalini Pandey and Hollywood actor Michael Madsen.

Anushka plays a deaf and mute character in the film which revolves around the murder of a key character and the subsequent investigation to find the killer. The entire film is being shot in Seattle, USA.

While the makers have already completed the first schedule, Madhavan and Anushka are expected to join the sets for the second schedule from this week.

This will be Anushka’s first major release since the release of her last Telugu horror thriller Bhagmathie, in which she played dual characters.

Anushka is believed to have shed a lot of weight for this project. In March, when her new pictures of her in a fitter avatar got shared online, fans couldn’t stop going gaga over new look.

Meanwhile, Anushka has completed shooting for her cameo in megastar Chiranjeevi’s upcoming Telugu magnum opus Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy.
