Goodachari was released earlier this year to mostly positive reviews. The film followed the story of a young man, who gets drafted into a secret spy agency that functions outside the purview of known governmental institutions.
The film was the origin story of a superspy, who goes by the codename Goodachari 116 (Spy 116), which is also the title of iconic actor Krishna’s 1966 espionage thriller.
Directed by Sashi Kiran Tikka, the film also had Sobhita Dhulipala, Prakash Raj and Jagapati Babu among others in important roles. Upon release, the film was declared as one of the biggest hits of Telugu cinema this year.
