Gopichand Malineni talks about his first collaboration with Sunny Deol

In an interview with Hindustan Times, Gopichand Malineni revealed that the script was written for someone like Sunny Deol. Speaking of whether he is nervous or excited about directing Deol, Malineni said, “More than nervous about my Bollywood debut, I feel confident that it’ll be a good film. I wrote the script knowing it’ll be perfect for someone like Sunny. Luckily, Mythri Movie Makers also agreed and helped me approach him. To my surprise, Sunny said yes immediately because he liked it so much.”

Gopichand asserts that the film is not a remake

He refrained from revealing too many details about the film.  “I wish I could reveal much, but I can’t yet. Let’s just say the film has a particular plot point that sets it apart. It’s not just about the mass elements my films usually have; it’s going to be a racy script with a touch of realism,” he shared. “He’s a big action hero, I’m a mass director and we have the perfect script. And let’s be clear, it’s not a remake,” added the director.

Gopichand also discusses about their works and what they like about each other

The filmmaker revealed about the Gadar actor’s love for his 2021 film starring Ravi Teja and Shruti Haasan as he mentioned, “Sunny has seen Krack, he liked it.” Meanwhile, Malineni has a list of films which are his favourites and he stated, “Me on the other hand, I think I’ve seen all his films. My favourites are Ghayal, Damini, Gadar, Border.”
