Tollywood top writer, producer Kona Venkat has aimed to tag another Telugu Classic title for his next film. Pathala Bhairavi will be the title of Kona’s next film. ‘Pathala Bhairavi’ was released in 1951 and starred NTR and SVR in the key roles.
Kona Venkat has this habit of tilting his films after few classics in Telugu Cinema. ‘Geethanjali’ that starred Anjali in the lead role was titled after Maniratnam’s 1989 romantic film ‘Geethanjali’ that starred Nagarjuna and Girija in the lead roles.
His recent release ‘Shankarabharanam’ that starred Nikhil and Nanditha is titled after 1979 musical hit ‘Sankarabharanam’ that was directed by Kasinathuni Viswanath.
Interestingly these two films that have classic titles have a completely different content from the originals. Now with Kona eyeing on Patala Bhairavi, shall see what kind of a story is revolving in his mind.
