Anushka Shetty motivates Karnataka actress to debut in Telugu

Anushka Shetty, who became a superstar in her own right after the 2009 movie ‘Arundhati’, is in the news for an interesting reason. Pakkhi Hegde, who acts in Bhojpuri movies, has revealed that the ‘Baahubali’ beauty was instrumental in motivating her to make a Tollywood debut. 

“I am currently doing a film titled ‘Mani Shankar’. As per the advice of the director and the producers of the movie, I have adopted the screen name of Priya Hegde in Telugu. It was Anushka Shetty, who also hails from the same region in Karnataka as mine, who first told me that I should consider making a Telugu-language debut. I had bumped into her at a film event,” Pakkhi said in her latest interview.
 
The actress has also done a few Marathi and Punjabi films. She is hoping that her Telugu debut will become a hit.
