Action hero Gopichand made his debut with the film Toli Valapu but it didn't give him a flying start as a lead actor. Then, he turned as a villain with his second film Jayam which brought him a lot of accolades. Jayam made Gopichand a new star in the industry. Later, he acted in the negative roles in films like Nijam and Varsham. Post Varsham, Gopichand found his success as a hero and never did any negative role since then. If the ongoing rumours are anything to go by, he is playing an antagonist role in Superstar Rajinikanth's upcoming film Annaatthe. If the news is true, it will be a comeback of Gopichand as a villain after a gap of 16 years.
According to the sources, Gopichand has already signed the film and will join the sets from the upcoming Pune schedule. Annaatthe is being directed by Siva of Vishwasam fame. Siva has directed Gopichand earlier for the films Souryam and Shankam. Both of them share a good bonding over the years. We hear that Gopichand accepted the role as Siva is a good friend of him. With the bonding they share, it actually became easy for the director to convince the actor for this role in the movie. Hope, Gopichand lives up to the expectations and impresses the fans.
Annaatthe features Keerthy Suresh, Nayanthara, Meena, Kushboo and Prakash Raj in the other important roles. It is being produced by Sun Pictures. D. Imman is composing the music for this film
