Allu Arjun, Trivikram film, a free make of Gopichand’s Goutham Nanda?
Remember Gopichand starrer Goutham Nanda? The action entertainer directed by Sampath Nandi and shows Gopi in a dual role? If the latest buzz in film Nagar is anything to go by, the story of Allu Arjun’s upcoming film, AA19, directed by Trivikram Srinivas is inspired by Goutham Nanda. While the 2017 film shows Gopi in two roles – as Goutham, the son of a business tycoon, who decides to leave behind his riches by switching lives with his look-alike Nanda, a slum dweller based in Hyderabad’s Borabanda, the Trivikram directorial shows Allu Arjun portraying the two characters with much variation, say reports.
Currently, the film’s shooting is in progress in Kakinada. Pooja Hegde, who plays the female lead, will be seen as an entrepreneur in the film also stars Nivetha Pethuraj in a crucial role. The film is scheduled to release during next Sankranthi.
