Actor Belamonda Sai Srinivas is set to play the lead role in the Telugu remake of the critically acclaimed Tamil hit, Karnan. Directed by Mari Selvaraj in Tamil, Dhanush-starrer released on 9 April and became an instant hit on ticket windows. The film emerged as one of the few hits that had a box office appearance during the epidemic.
Speaking exclusively to Indianexpress.com, a source said, “Yes. Belanakonda Sai Srinivas is reprising the role of Dhanush in the Telugu remake of Karan. But, contrary to reports, Srinivas’s father, Belamkonda Suresh, is not the producer of the Telugu remake. The official announcement for the same will be made very soon. “
Belamkonda Sai Srinivas is known for acting in Telugu action entertainers such as Alludu Seenu, Jaya Janaki Nayak, and Rakshasudu. The actor is busy with the Hindi remake of Prabhas-starrer Chhatrapati. Produced by Jayantilal Gada’s Penn Studios, the film is Belamkonda’s Bollywood debut.
With Karan’s success at the box office, Ek Dhanush recently announced his new project with Mari Selvaraj. The project is currently under preproduction works, and its shooting will begin next year.
