Took me three years to convince Gopichand: Veerabhadram
Chennai: It took three years for director Veerabhadram to get actor Gopichand to collaborate with him on a yet-untitled Telugu actioner that is slated to go on the floors next year.
"We have been talking about working together for three years now. We were supposed to team up earlier but it didn`t materialise at the last minute. But I`m happy that finally he has agreed to do a film with me and I`m sure I won`t let him down," Veerabhadram told IANS.
"It will be along the lines of my film `Poolarangadu` with a lot of focus on entertaining audiences from start to finish," he added.
The director`s recent release Nagarjuna-starrer "Bhai", which is still running in cinemas, has turned out to be a dud.
He says the film has done "decent business". Now he is looking forward to the project with Gopichand.
"We will launch the film in December but will start shooting it only after he is done with his current project with director Gopal," said Veerabhadram.
Ananda Prasad will produce the film under his home banner Bhavya Creations. The team is yet to zero in on the leading lady.
Gopichand is currently shooting for a Tamil-Telugu untitled bilingual with B. Gopal. It also stars Nayanthara.
