R Madhavan’s Silence to start rolling from April, Kill Bill actor Michael Madsen lands a key role
Well-known international actor Michael Madsen, popular for his work in Hollywood films such as Reservoir Dogs and Kill Bill among many more, has landed a crucial role in upcoming R Madhavan and Anushka Shetty starrer multi-lingual thriller Silence, the makers announced via a statement.
The project, to be simultaneously shot in Telugu, Tamil and English, will mark Madsen’s debut in an Indian film, which also stars Subbaraju, Anjali, Shalini Pandey and Avasarala Srinivas in pivotal roles.
“This is an international film with stars from Hollywood, Bollywood and Tollywood. Michael Madsen, who has starred in over 100 Hollywood films, is for the first time doing an Indian international film. He plays an important character in the film,” read a statement from Vishwa Prasad, CEO of People Media Factory, which is bankrolling this project.
The film, slated to go on the floors in April and to be entirely shot in USA, will be directed by Hemanth Madhukar.
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. Last month, when her new pictures of in a fitter avatar got shared online, fans couldn’t stop going gaga over new look.
Later this year, Anushka may reunite with filmmaker Gautham Vasudev Menon for Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa 2, a sequel to his hit 2010 romantic drama Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa. Interestingly, this project was also supposed to star Madhavan, but now it will feature Simbu, who was part of the first part as well.
