Kona Venkat, one of the producers of 'Nishabdham', said that Anushka Shetty was not the first choice for the lead role in the movie and she got in after an actress walked out.
"We were about to start the film with some other actress. But we had visa issues and that actress opted out of the project. I happened to meet Anushka during a flight journey and narrated 'Nishabdham' story to her. She liked it and gave her nod to do the film after a week", Kona Venkat said.
'Nishabdham', also starring Madhavan, Michael Madsen, Anjali, Subbaraju, Shalini Pandey among others, has been directed by Hemanth Madhukar. The film will release on 31st January, 2020.
