Telugu industry has this habit of releasing the same cyclone over and again if the first one clicks big time. And if a hero uses the titled ending with “raa” then we have a barge of films hitting the silver screen with the same title. If someone tastes success with a story that has a first half set up in foreign soil and second half in India, then a horde of films will follow.
It looks like the success of “Mahanati” is now making many producers and directors dig the stories of some old and veteran actors such that they could carve a movie on their life. While none of them is quick to zero on something, it looks like producer Raj Kandukuri got hold of another biopic after announcing a similar film long back.
Reports are coming that the producer of films like Pellichoopulu and Mental Madhilo is now making his moves to produce a biopic on late star heroine Soundarya. Though she is a Kannada girl, her whole career happened big way in Telugu only and hence Raj Kandukuri zeroed on this subject. Some say that the film will be made in all four Southern languages. But there is a long process of convincing her family members and husband to make a film on Soundarya’s life.
Cut to the recent past, Raj has earlier announced to produce the biopic of TRS supremo and Telangana CM KCR, but somehow there is no clue about that film so far. Now, let’s see if Soundarya will join Savitri to become the second actress to have a biopic or not.
