Director Bhaskar made his debut with the film Bommarilu way back in 2006 and it went on to become a big hit earning him instant fame and fortune.

Unfortunately, the next set of films, Parugu, Orange, Ongole Gitta and Bangalore Natkal turned out to be box office duds which were a major setback for him. Following this, not too many offers came his way and projects that he was to do with Karthi and Venkatesh were put in the backburner.

Trying to regain his lost glory, Bommarilu Bhaskar has been working on a script and has impressed ace producer Allu Aravind.

According to sources, Bhaskar’s upcoming film may be bankrolled by Allu Aravind’s home banner Geetha Arts. There is also a buzz that Allu Sirish may be playing the lead role in the film. However, there is no official word on it yet.

It may be noted here that Bangalore Natkal was the remake of the hit Malayalam film Bangalore Days. The film was a multistarrer that had Arya, Bobby Simha, Sri Divya, Rana Daggubati, Raai Laxmi, Parvathy and Samantha in the star cast.

Bhaskar’s debut flick Bommarilu was a hit that had Siddharth and Genelia D'Souza as the lead pair with Prakash Raj, Kota Srinivasa Rao and Jayasudha in pivotal roles. The film was remade in Tamil under the title Santosh Subramaniam, in Bengali as Bhalobasa Bhalobasa and in Odia as Dream Girl. With the new project on hands that is to be bankrolled by Allu Aravind, Bommarilu Bhaskar hopes to regain his lost glory in the film industry. He is currently busy with the scripting work and is expected to make an official announcement about the film soon.
