Mahesh Babu To Play Gopichand In Biopic

Well, he is probably done playing the robin-hood type cop and the typical Tollywood mass hero.

I do not say this intentionally. There definitely is some truth to it.

If rumours are anything to go by, Super Star Mahesh Babu is all set to play Former Badminton Star, Pullela Gopichand. A biopic is in the offing on the badminton star of yesteryear, who is now a well-known coach.

Yes. That’s right! This piece of news has come flying from Film Nagar.

According to reports, the biopic on Pullela Gopichand will depict his journey from a university badminton champion to India’s top Badminton player.


The film will be directed by Pravenn Sattaru who has previously made interesting movies such as LBW and ‘Chandamama Kathalu‘.

The film will be produced by Mahesh Babu’s ‘Baava’ Sudheer babu under his own banner.

And if rumours are anything to go by, then the pre-production of the film has already started. Well, it can easily be called the season of biopics.

Earlier, Farhan Akhtar’s ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ earned rave reviews from audiences and made huge money at the box office.

Priyanka Chopra’s ‘Mary Kom’ is gearing up for release as well.

And now, with Mahesh Babu playing Pullela Gopichand in his next, it may indeed be called ‘The season of biopics’.

The athletic physique and intriguing looks that Mahesh possesses surely makes him the first choice for the role since that is exactly how Gopichand used to look earlier in his career.

Only time will tell if the ‘biopic’ genre works in Tollywood the way it did in Bollywood!
