All eyes set on Powerstar Pawan Kalyan's upcoming ventures with the first big release of summer, Katamarayudu tanking at the box office. Pawan Kalyan who is not quite on a roll with having delivered back to back movies which fetched negative criticism from the critics and a huge thumbs down from the audience, is now seeming to gear up and proceed ahead carefully.
His upcoming movie which is touted as the star's 25th movie is
being seen as a prestigious flick and the powerhouse is determined
to score a blockbuster and thereby silencing the critics and
anti-fans. This Trivikram Srinivas directorial untitled movie has
already hit floors and a leaked image of the shooting went viral on
the internet. The scene involved the Jalsa star hugging his
co-star, Keerthi Suresh as part of the scene.
Pawan Kalyan is reported to play a software engineer in the
movie and rumours are doing rounds that the suave characterization
for the actor will have a suave screen name. "Abhijith Bhargav" is
the name being discussed as the on-screen name for our Janasena
leader. One could expect another Gautham Nanda (PK's name in
Attarintiki Daredi) kind of a characterization which could
have the potential ability to pull both class and mass audience
However, it was confirmed that Pawan Kalyan's subsequent movie
would be a remake of Thala Ajith's Vedhalam under the
banner of AM Ratnam following the movie with Trivikram combo.
However, Tollywood circles have different news to offer and few
sources say that the remake plans could possibly be shelved. Having
faced backlash from all possible ends including from certain
section of fans for opting remake option and facing disastrous
result with Katamarayudu, the Pawan Kalyan camp seems to
be concentrating on a straight movie.
If few sources are to be believed, Kandireega fame
Santhosh Srinivas could be calling action cut for his 26th Movie.
Though it could be a commercial potboiler which might come as a
routine flick, fans of the actor seems to be breathing a sigh of
relief for not going in with the remake option.
Santhosh Srinivas was successful in scoring a blockbuster with
Kandireega. however, was not able to manage favourable box
office results with his following ventures, Rabhasa and
Hyper. So one needs to wait and watch as to what this
cinematographer turned director has in offerings for both Pawan
Kalyan and his ardent fans.
