Complete Actor Mohanlal’s ‘KanuPapa’, directed by the acclaimed director Priyadarshan, will hit the screens on Feb 3rd. Presented by Dileep Kumar Bolugoti’s Overseas Network Entertainment, it is brought to the Telugu audience by Mohanlal himself. This dubbed version of Malayalam hit ‘Oppam’ belongs to the crime thriller genre.
At a press meet held today in Hyderabad, Executive Producer Srinivasa Murthy said, “Coming after the success of ‘Manyam Puli’, the story is in the mould of ‘Pasivadi Pranam’. Mohanlal garu is seen in the role of a blind man. ‘KanuPapa’ is high on human values and we are confident that it will be a big hit.”
Presenter Dileep Kumar said, “Warangal is my native town. I have entered the industry with the aim of bringing out novel films. I have got the remake rights of ‘Oppam’ through ‘Sindhura Puvvu’ Krishna Reddy garu. I am hoping that ‘KanuPapa’ will be accepted by the audience.”
‘Sindhura Puvvu’ Krishna Reddy said, “We all know how brilliantly Chiranjeevi garu performed in ‘Pasivadi Pranam’ in the role of an adult fighting to save a child’s life. ‘KanuPapa’ is about how it will be like if the hero’s character is blind. This is a genuinely fresh entertainer with a marvellous performance from Mohanlal garu. This is a lovely crime thriller that won’t disappoint any.”
Baby Meenakshi has playing the child’s role. Vimala Raman, Anusree, Samuthirakani, Nedumudi Venu, Renji Panicker, Chemban Vinod Jose and others are seen in other key roles.
