When we hear a name called Bhakta Kannappa, the only name that flashes our mind id Rebel star Krishnam Raju who made the character timeless and etched a permanent mark in the history of Telugu cinema.
Many years later, multi-talented actor and director Thanikella Bharani has dared to make a film with the same title and comedian turned hero Sunil has been chosen for the title role but the film hasn’t boarded the sets yet. The latest we hear is that, Manchu Vishnu is doing the film under the direction of Bharani in his home banner 24 Frames Factory.
Though the film is titled Bhakta Kannappa, it is not a mythological subject, say sources close to Bharani. This smart actor and producer from the Manchu family has been surprising one and all with bold yet peculiar picks and even Bhakta Kannappa is one of them. Further details of the cast and crew shall be revealed very soon.
Being a Bharani’s directorial, we expect a sensible film with pure Telugu nativity and the Bhakta Kannappa connectivity is only raising curiosity over the film. We wish all the success to Vishnu and the entire team of Bhakta Kannappa.
