The comedian-turned-actor Sunil’s star status seems to be growing high day-by-day.  The eager beaver’s forthcoming release Bheemavaram Bullodu is gearing up for its grand audio launch on 22nd December. According to the film’s producers, the event will happen at DNR College grounds, Bheemavaram (Sunil was the former student of this college). Ester Noronha is the female lead alongside Sunil in the film and Anoop Rubens has scored the audio tunes.

On the other hand, writer-director Tanikella Bharani who impressed Tolly audiences with Midhunam has roped in Sunil for this next directorial venture Baktha Kannappa, which is said to feature biography of Kannappa (devote of Lord Shiva). Presently, Bharani is giving final touches to the script and the movie is likely to hit the floors in April 2014.

It is yet-to-be known whether this is a remake of Rebel Star Krishnam Raju’s Bhakta Kannappa (1976) or a new one.
