Hollywood actor in Anushka’s next

Hollywood actor Michael Madsen has been roped in to play a pivotal role in Anushka Shetty-Madhavan’s upcoming film Nishabdham and his first look from the upcoming multilingual thriller has been released.

“#KillBill and #Species fame Hollywood actor #MichaelMadsen as Richard Dickens, a Seattle PD cop. #Nishabdham,” wrote the production house People Media Factory, unveiling the first look.

It added: “Watch #NishabdhamTeaser here ICYMI… http://bit.ly/NishabdhamTeaser …#AnushkaShetty @ActorMadhavan @yoursanjali @shalinipandeyyy @actorsubbaraju @hemantmadhukar @peoplemediafcy.”

Anjali, Subbaraju, Shalini Pandey and Srinivas Avasarala play important roles in this movie. Madhavan and Anushka had shared screen space in Rendu in the year 2006, and they are teaming up for Nishabdham after 13 years now.

Earlier this month, ahead of Anushka’s birthday on November 7, the teaser of Nishabdham was released. The clip of the horror-thriller hints at a leisurely vacation ending with a mysterious murder. Anushka plays Sakshi, a “mute artist”, while Madhavan is Anthony, a “celebrity musician”.

Michael Madsen of Kill Bill and Reservoir Dogs-fame takes on the role of a police officer, tasked with finding the culprit behind the murder investigation. “Everyone is a suspect,” says the teaser. Anjali and Subbaraju’s characters are also introduced.

A multi-lingual thriller directed by Hemant Madhukar, there’s not a single dialogue in the teaser, and that’s the big news. The teaser looks like a solid whodunit.
