Anushka began her career as a Yoga instructor under Bharat Thakur.  While she was teaching yoga, her striking figure and her beautiful persona bagged her a few movie offers. She accepted to act in the Telugu film called ‘Super’ in 2005 when she was 24 years old.  Though the film opened to an average reception, the two debutante girls Ayesha Takia and Anushka Shetty were noticed.   The movie which put her on the front-line was Vikramarkudu (2006) which was later remade as Rowdy Rathore in Bollywood.  She kept on proving herself with every film including Astram, Stalin, Lakshyam and Okka Magaadu, all of which did good business at the box office.

Arundhati in  2009 was an author-backed role for Anushka Shetty. In a double-role, she proved her versatility and showed in no uncertain terms that she could carry a movie on her shoulders. After a few films, Anushka again proved her mettle playing the role of a prostitute in the film ‘Vedam’ (2010), which  won her two Filmfare Awards and many other awards.

In Tamil cinema,  Anushka Shetty also proved to be a distinguished performer with two blockbuster hits Singham (2010) and Singham II (2013). Anushka Shetty has been likened to Vidya Balan or Kangana Ranaut of South Indian Film industry, capable of playing strong female protagonists without the need of the male actor to capture all the limelight.
