Rebel star Krishnamraju’s best classic in his career is the film ‘Bhakta Kannappa’ and many felt that if it is remade Prabhas is the best choice for reprising the role. But his range has gone to the level of ‘Baahubali’ whereas ‘Bhakta Kannappa’ is more pathos related so it is not sure how much it would suit him.

In between Tanikella Bharani wrote a script for ‘Bhakta Kannappa’ with Sunil in the title role but sources say Sunil didn’t like it so the project got shelved. Apparently, in Kannada, the legendary actor Rajkumar did ‘Bhakta Kannappa’ and all Kannadigas only remember him.

Similarly for Telugus only Krishnamraju comes in mind. But for new generation if that character has to be remembered only Prabhas is best but that range of script and budget should be there. Moreover story cannot be changed because it is historical. But if Prabhas can prove his mettle by doing this also it will be like how Nagarjuna did ‘Annamayya’Sri Ramadasu’ and earned acclaim. Well, if Prabhas has to do it, all factors should come into line.
