Sinivas Avasarala’s much-awaited Telugu remake of Bollywood hit Hunterrr has been re-titled as Babu Baga Busy, which was the initial tag-line to the earlier title Soggadu.
The filmmakers made last minute changes even after the first pre-look poster was released last month. The film is slated to release in December.
Under Naveen Medaram’s 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. The film also features Tanikella Bharani playing a crucial role.
The sex comedy is said to be planned at 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 currently 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, the buzz in the B-Town is that Gulshan is buckling up for a possible sequel to the film, which is said to be in the scripting stage at present.
