Napoleon, who recently wowed audiences both in Tamil and Telugu with his brief but powerful cameo of Kulothunga Raja Cholan in Dasavatharam, also spelt Dasavathaaram, is all set to get back to Telugu films after a very long gap.
His last major role in Telugu was as villain in Nagarjuna's Hello Brother. This Bharathiraja find (whose real name Kumaresan was changed for the screen by the great director) did a few films in Telugu but focused his energies more in Tamil. He has portrayed a multitude of roles like hero, character artist and villain in Tamil films.
In his next Telugu movie, Napoleon is essaying a villain's role; Srikanth is playing the lead and Satya, Dasari's assistant, will make his directorial debut. This will be Srikanth's 99th film; shooting is planned to begin in August.
