Nani’s Gang Leader is slated to hit the marquee on September 13. Touted to be an action-comedy film, the film is written and directed by Vikram K Kumar. If the sources are anything to go by, latest we hear is that the film will have Nani playing dual roles.
Recently, during the film promotion event, Nani revealed that he plays a character called Pencil Parthasarathy. Pencil is his pen name and most of his books are written and not sold. Reports suggest that another role has been kept under the wraps by the makers which will appear in the flashback.
The film stars Nani and Priyanka Arulmohan as the lead pair with Karthikeya, Saranya, Aneesh Kuruvilla, Priyadarshi, Raghubabu, Vennela Kishore and Sathya in pivotal roles. Produced by Naveen Yerneni, Y. Ravi Sankar and Mohan Cherukuri under the banner of Mythri Movie Makers, the makers of the film initially were planning to release the film on August 30. But the makers postponed the release to September 13 to avoid the clash with Prabhas’ magnum opus Saaho which had hit the screens on August 30.
Music for Gang Leader is composed by Anirudh Ravichander with Miroslaw Kuba Brozek cranking the camera and Navin Nooli editing it.
Nani’s recent release Jersey has turned out to be one of the biggest hits in the Telugu film industry this year. Helmed by director Gowtam Tinnanuri, the film had Nani and Shraddha Srinath playing the lead pair.
Meanwhile, Nani has started shooting for his milestone 25th film. Titled "V", the film is being helmed by Nani's mentor and director Mohan Krishna Indraganti. Nani made his acting debut in the Telugu film industry with the 2008 movie Ashta Chamma directed by Mohan Krishna Indraganti. Touted to be an action thriller, it is said that Nani will be seen playing a negative role in the movie.
