Actor and director Sirinivas Avasarala’s next film Soggadu, a Telugu remake of Bollywood hit Hunterrr, is set to hit the screens next month. Reports suggest that the film is in the last leg of shooting and is expected to release in December.
Under Naveen Medaram direction, Avasarala will reprise Gulshan Devaiah’s role as a sex addict in the remake. Regina Cassandra, Mishti Chakraborty and Sri Mukhi are likely to be the female leads in the movie. It also features Tanikella Bharani playing a crucial role.
The sex comedy is said to be planned on a budget of Rs 2.5 crore and will be bankrolled by Abhishek Pictures.
The explicit adult comedy will be a very bold movie for the Tollywood audience. However, Avasarala had said it would be a different experience.
“I shot for the film for 10 days. I haven’t come across anything uncomfortable. When I am doing the scenes, I can feel the emotions. My first gut reaction while watching the movie was to do the film. It’s a very bold movie for the Telugu audience but if they can look beyond that, Hunterrr has a more sensitive story,” Avasarala had shared in an interview.
Hunterrr was a decent success at the Bollywood box office, having connected with fans of adult comedy. It featured Radhika Apte and Sai Tamhankar among others.
Srinivas Avasarala is riding high on the success of his recent box office hit Jo Achuytananda, which he directed featuring Nara Rohith, Naga Shourya and Regina Cassandra. Meanwhile, rumours are also rife in the B-Town that Gulshan is buckling up for a possible sequel to the film, which is said to be in the scripting stage at present.
