Anushka Shetty and Madhavan, who have been brought on board for a silent thriller, have started shooting for the film in the US. The project, titled Nishabdam in Telugu, and Silence in Tamil, Hindi and English, is jointly produced by Kona Film Corporation and People Media Factory.

The makers took to Twitter to make the announcement, while also sharing a few pictures from the launch.

Directed by Hemanth Madhukar (Mumbai 125 KM and Vastadu Naa Raju), Silence also stars Michael Madsen of Kill Bill fame in an important role. Shalini Pandey, Srinivas Avasarala, Anjali and Subba Raju play the supporting cast. 

It was reported that Anushka will be seen as a deaf-mute NRI businesswoman in the crime thriller. The makers have reportedly planned a 60-day schedule in Seattle to shoot a large part of the film.

Silence will have music by Gopi Sunder, and cinematography by Goodachari-fame Shaneil Kumar Deo. The film, which will have Anushka and Madhavan sharing screen space after more than a decade, is expected to get a release in multiple languages in 2020. 

Anushka will be next seen in a special appearance in Megastar Chiranjeevi-starrer Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy. Madhavan will next feature in Rocketry: The Nambi Effect, which is based on the life of former scientist and aerospace engineer, Nambi Narayanan.
