The much-awaited audio launch of Oopiri, starring Akkineni Nagarjuna, Karthi and Tamannah Bhatia, had its audio launch yesterday, amidst the fans in Hyderabad. Oopiri is a bilingual movie, which is simultaneously shot in Tamil as Thozha. Young music director Gopi Sunder has composed music for both the versions. The audio of its Tamil version was released by Suriya at a grand event held in Chennai on Feb 26, and its songs have received thumping response from music lovers.
Directed by Vamsi Paidipally, Oopiri is an official remake of 2011 French comedy-drama film The Intouchables, which deals with the friendship between a wealthy quadriplegic and his caregiver. Akkineni Nagarjuna is seen playing the rich man, while Karthi appears as his assistant in the movie.

After Shiva, Geethanjali and Annamayya, I am sure Oopiri will be a remarkable film in my career”.
