The two parts series trend has begun in Tollywood with Rajamouli’s magnum opus Baahubali. Balakrishna is making his most ambitious project NTR biopic as two part series- Kathanayakudu and Mahanayakudu.
It was very convincing of Baahubali to have two parts owing to its length and suspense element of why did Kattappa kill Baahubali that generated lots of interest nationwide. Director Krish and the team of NTR biopic too came up with a convincing statement of first part to highlight NTR’s cinema career and second part to showcase NTR’s political achievements.
Coming to actual point, as per a buzz, makers of ace shuttler Pullela Gopichand biopic are also planning to make the film in 2 parts. Many opine that, it is not a good idea since such films will have less scope for commercial success and Sudheer Babu who will be portraying his bestie Gopichand is not a big star. Moreover, his last movie Nannu Dochukunduvate was a dud.
Praveen Sattaru will be directing biopic on Pullela Gopichand that will be simultaneously shot in Telugu and Hindi. It has to be seen whether the makers will change their mind over making the film in 2 parts, as they are getting negative feedback from netizens.
