Megastar Chiranjeevi’s latest release “Bholaa Shankar” turned out to be a miserable disaster in Chiranjeevi’s career. Most of the fans who were deeply disappointed by the massive failure of “Bholaa Shankar” have even resorted to writing open letters to Chiranjeevi, urging him to steer clear of remakes.
Megastar Chiranjeevi took on this project more out of a sense of obligation. He shares a close familial connection with director Meher Ramesh, who played an active role in Chiranjeevi’s Corona Crisis Charity efforts during the lockdown, working tirelessly under perilous conditions to provide essential groceries and medicines to those in need. In recognition of this, Chiranjeevi decided to offer him a film project, giving birth to “Bholaa Shankar.”
However, after shooting some portions of the film, Chiranjeevi put the project on the back burner and shifted his focus to “God Father” and “Waltair Veerayya.” Following the average performance of “Godfather,” he took “Waltair Veerayya” as a prestigious venture, which ultimately became the biggest blockbuster of the year in Tollywood.
Encouraged by the success of “Waltair Veerayya,” Chiranjeevi decided to resurrect “Bholaa Shankar,” hoping to infuse it with the same commercial appeal that worked for the former. Unfortunately, “Bholaa Shankar” failed to meet expectations and turned out to be a disappointment.
Now, Netflix, having acquired the streaming rights, is planning to release the film on their platform starting from September 15th. The movie also features Keerthy Suresh and Tamannaah in significant roles, with Sushanth making an extended special appearance. The film was produced by Anil Sunkara.
