As reported by other media houses earlier, Mahesh Babu was all set to play Pullela Gopichand in the latter’s biopic. The reports also said that Sudheer Babu was producing this flick. However, those were plain rumours.
The truth is that Sudheer Babu will be the one playing Pullela Gopichand on screen.
Sudheer Babu confirmed this himself saying, “Mahesh playing the role of pullela gopichand isn’t true and I am not producing it either. However I & praveen sattaru want to do a film on gopi’s life & I will be playing the role of gopi. as of now we are not sure when this film will go on floor.”
The film will be directed by Praveen Sattaru with Sudheer Babu in the lead.
Praveen,whose earlier films like LBW and Chandamama Kathalu impressed the critics, has not yet tasted commercial success.
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 Sudheer Babu playing Pullela Gopichand in his next, it may indeed be called ‘The season of biopics’.
Well, given the kind of work Sudheer Babu has been doing so far, this role is not going to be easy for him. Only time will if he can pull out a pigeon out of the hat and impress the audiences with this one.
