Bheemla Nayak, which also stars Pawan Kalyan, Nitya Menen and Aishwarya Rajesh, is the official remake of the Malayalam movie Ayyappanum Koshiyum starring Biju Menon and Prithviraj
Bheemla Nayak has been the talk of Tollywood for the last couple of months. It was expected that the Pawan Kalyan starrer will have a big name to play the rival role and the makers did meet the expectations of fans. The fans got excited when the makers announced that Rana Daggubati, who played a villain in Prabhas’ Baahubali will be the antagonist of the Power Star. Now, the actor himself has announced that the first look of his avatar in Bheemla Nayak will be announced soon.
From the Tweet, we could recognise that it is Rana Daggubati’s hand in the picture. The actor in a kurta and white dhoti with clenched fists is out of focus in the frame. The actor has revealed that the first look will be out on September 20, i.e, in three days. The character’s name would be Daniel Shekar and will be seen taking on Pawan Kalyan’s Bheemla Nayak.
In the original movie, Ayyappanum Koshiyum, Biju Menon played the role of SI Ayyappan who is put in a difficult spot by an aristocrat and arrogant Koshy Kurien played by Prithviraj. The movie narrated the revenge of Ayyappan and how Koshy faces it as a rival. In Bheemla Nayak, Pawan Kalyan will be playing Ayyappan as SI Bheemla Nayak and Rana Daggubati will reprise Prithviraj’s Koshy as Daniel “Danny” Shekar. Nithya Menen and Aishwarya Rajesh will play the roles of wives to Bheemla Nayak and Rana Daggubati respectively.
The movie is directed by Saagar K Chandra and the script is by the Telugu hitmaker Trivikram Srinivas.
Meanwhile, Rana was last seen in the Hindi blockbuster Housefull 4 in which he played a small but prominent role as a Qawwali singer Pappu Rangeela and was praised for the role. The actor is currently involved in the filming of the trilingual movie Kaadan in which he will play the lead role with Vishnu Vishal. He is also committed to Virata Parvam, in which he will play the lead role as a Naxal.
