It has been confirmed officially that Gopichand and Tammannah are sharing the screen space in the upcoming Sampath Nandi directorial. It went on to the floors recently and will progress at a brisk pace. The film, which is touted to be a complete entertainer, will be bankrolled by Chitturi Srinivas Rao under his banner.
The last film Sampath Nandi and Gopichand had teamed up was for Goutham Nanda, which was released in 2017. The film turned out to be a big hit. Goutham Nanda was an action entertainer written and directed by Sampath Nandi. Produced by J Bhagavan and J Pulla Rao under Sri Balaji Cine Media Banner, the film had Gopichand in dual roles with Hansika Motwani and Catherine Tresa as the female leads. The music was composed by S. Thaman, while Soudar Rajan cranked the camera and Gautham Raju edited it.
Also, Tammannah has worked with Sampath Nandi in Bengal Tiger earlier and therefore shares a good rapport with him. In this action comedy, Tammannah had shared the screen space with Ravi Teja.
The upcoming Sampath Nandi directorial is touted to be a sports drama and we hear that Tammannah will be playing a Kabbadi coach in it. Tammannah is very excited about her role in this untitled film. Speaking about it, she had said in an interview to the Deccan Chronicle much earlier, â€śI feel that coaching is an underrated aspect of any professional sport and that is why I find this film even more interesting. My role is a tribute of sorts to coaches like Pullela Gopichand, Ramakant Achrekar, Guru Hanuman, Satpal Singh and the likes who have turned things around for Indian sports.â€ť
Gopichandâ€™s last film release was Chanakya directed by Thiru. Mehreen Pirzada and Zareen Khan played the female leads in this flick with Rajesh Khattar and Upen Patel in supporting roles.
