It is official and comes straight from the horse’s mouth! Vishal, the tall, dark, handsome hero and the most eligible bachelor in K’town is soon to tie the knot with his sweetheart Anisha Alla Reddy from Hyderabad. The TFPC president confirmed to DC that it was he who first proposed to Anisha when he met her at Vizag while shooting for Ayogya. “She is God sent,”, an ecstatic Vishal said.
Anisha is an actress who did a few films like Arjun Reddy and Pelli Choopulu and is a social worker based in Hyderabad. Hailing from a business family, she is the daughter of industrialist Dinesh Reddy and Savita.
A picture of a girl was circulating in the media, but the Sandakozhi star was quick to clarify that it was not of his fiancée. In an exclusive to DC, Vishal spilled the beans about how it all started and his wedding plans.
“I was shooting for my upcoming flick Ayogya last November in Vizag. I got an opportunity to meet a team, an all women crew and cast who were ready with a script for an English film titled All About Michelle. Apoorva directs it and Anisha is part of it as the lead actress. And what fascinated me was that the entire crewmembers including cinematographer, sound recordist and editor belonged to families of farmers. That idea was amazing and I agreed to present the film in my home banner. What started off as a casual meet for work ended up in marriage.(smiles).”
So, who proposed first, we ask. Laughs. “Hmmm, can’t you guess?, he asks back. “It’s only me (gushes).” He went on to add, “I also narrated my script on animals which will be my debut venture as a director. It will be made in Hollywood style along the lines of Cats and Dogs and Marley and Me. I wanted to get her feedback on it. And if all goes well, I am planning to foray into direction this year and Anisha will also join the creative team.”
The lanky actor also reveals that Anisha is a national level basketball player. “She is into sports as well and also a social worker. I won’t say she quit films, but she does what she feels comfortable doing. There’s yet another captivating side of Anisha. She is into behavioural training. I recently saw one of her videos where she trained a tiger and put him to sleep. It was spellbinding (shrugs).”
Writing seems to be Anisha’s passion. She took to Instagram to write on her new relationship status. “To the start of something new! Thank you all for everything you’ve done; Been a part of my growth, my learning, my observations, my inspiration, my truth, my hurt, my strength, my reason or all that has brought me to where I am today, who I am today.
Soon enough, I will be on a new journey and I yearn to live up to all of my dreams and goals and the challenges I have put up for myself. I finally found somebody to go down the path of life with, loving him and life with true passion. I look up to this man for all that he stands for and for all of his heart. I vow to give back to him, the families and the people around with this step forward. I vow to be the best that I can be, intention towards collective learning, love and moral value.”
The engagement is likely to take place in early March this year. Vishal had pledged to enter wedlock only after the completion of Nadigar Sangam’s new building. Remind him about that and if Anisha is ready for it and he replies, “Yes. She said she would wait till it is fulfilled.”...
