Across the popular Indian Woods, Anushka is noted to belong to the tall league. There is a popular belief that Anushka is 6 feet tall, which has led to directors hesitating to cast her opposite all the actors, owing to the probable height difference. Further, the actress's friends have also raised a question recently on who she would choose to marry, as she is very tall for an Indian woman, which may pose a problem in getting herself a groom.
But Anushka stepped in to clarify, and said "I am not 6 feet tall! I am many inches shorter than the rumoured height. In fact, I am only 5'6", which I don't think is too tall. Besides, I don't perform based on whether the actor is tall or short; I choose my projects solely based on script and the importance to my character in it." Anushka is currently working on two historic movies - 'Bahubali' and 'Rudrama Devi' - in Tollywood, both of which will be complete only after a year and half. It is only after completing these projects will she take up a new one. Meanwhile, she is gearing up for the release of her most awaited multilingual 'Irandam Ulagam'.
