PVP’s gamble for Adivi Sesh’s Evaru
Adivi Sesh and producer Prasad V Potluri have collaborated for a crime mystery thriller Evaru. Directed by newcomer Venkat Ramji, the film also features Regina Cassandra as the female lead. Ever since the film’s teaser released, the industry is abuzz with reports that Evaru is inspired by the Spanish film The Invisible Guest (2017), which was later officially remade into Hindi as Badla by Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment. Badla follows an interview between a lawyer (Amitabh Bachchan) and a businesswoman (Taapsee Pannu), in which the latter claims that she was purposefully framed for the murder of her ex-flame.
However, Evaru revolves around a policeman, Vikram (Adivi Sesh) and a businesswoman (Regina Cassandra). To avoid any unnecessary controversy, we hear, PVP has acquired the remake rights of Badla from Shah Rukh Khan’s production house for a fancy price and replaced the lawyer’s character from the original with a cop. So, will PVP’s gamble pay off for Sesh, who is aiming to score a hattrick at the box-office? Let’s wait until August 15!
