Well, with many speculating the reason behind the decrease in Vakeel Saab's theatre count, looks like the second wave of COVID-19 might have resulted in lesser screenings. Notably, the film marks Pawan Kalyan's comeback in the industry after 3 years of long hiatus.
Directed by Venu Sriram and backed by Boney Kapoor and Dil Raju under Sri Venkateswara Creations, the film has an ensemble cast including Shruti Haasan, Prakash Raj, Anjali, Ananya Nagalla, Naresh, Nivetha Thomas, Dev Gill, Subbaraju and Vamsi Krishna. Vakeel Saab is the official Telugu remake of the Bollywood film Pink, which was also remade in Tamil as Nerkonda Paarvai.
