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 into theatres.
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.
