Gopichand is happy with the success of his latest flick Souryam starring the shapely and sizzling ex-yoga teacher, Anushka. Potboilers seem to be his forte, with his movies like Ontari, Lakshyam (with Anoushka) and Okkadunnadu (having all the elements of action, drama and comedy to cater to all the sections of the audiences) proving to be super hits. His intensity onscreen suits dramatic, emotional and action scenes equally and he is one of the few young actors who are versatile with comedies as well as action entertainers.
Right now, Gopichand is getting ready to act in another mass entertainer. Boyapati Srinivas, who made action films like Bhadra and Tulasi, is now all set to direct Gopichand in another mass action entertainer.
Industry sources say that Souryam raked in Rs. 1.7 crores in the first week itself. Gopichand, whose audience base is strong in the B and C centres, has now conquered the A class audiences as well with Souryam. Now with his next flick, he is all set to consolidate his position as the next superstar!
