Sunil used to be the numero uno comedian in the Telugu film industry a few years back. After that, he turned as a lead hero and stopped doing supporting characters. Unfortunately, his stint as a lead actor didn't go well. Thus, Sunil is now back in the business of doing supporting roles but he is unable to get a solid role. All his recent films offered nothing to Sunil. He tried to be different in Disco Raja but it didn't work out. If the latest grapevine is anything to go by, director Boyapati Srinu is giving a makeover to Sunil. Apparently, Sunil will play a negatively shaded role in Boyapati's upcoming film with Balakrishna.
According to the sources, Boyapati wrote a powerful character for Sunil. He is also going to give the actor a stunning makeover to look menacing. Earlier, Boyapati has turned soft actors like Jagapathi Babu and Aadhi Pinishetty as deadly villains. He is now doing the same job with Sunil. We hear that Sunil is also getting double remuneration for this movie. If this experiment works out, Tollywood will get a new villain in the form of Sunil. The Poola Rangadu actor is playing a negative role in the upcoming film Color Photo as well. We have to see how this negative stint of Sunil will work.
This Balakrishna and Boyapati project is being bankrolled by Miriyala Ravinder Reddy under the banner Dwaraka Creations. Thaman is composing the music of it.
