If strong rumours are to be believed, Pawan Kalyan has called off his much anticipated Gabbar Singh 2. In substitute, he is doing the Telugu remake of Oh My God which in turn is based on Hollywood film Man who sued God. What’s more? As reported by us earlier, Pawan is sharing screen space with Venkatesh in the film. While Pawan steps into the role of Akshay Kumar in the original (Lord Krishna), Venkatesh will be seen reprising the role of Paresh Rawal (an athiest shopkeeper). Suresh Productions and Pawan Kalyan’s closest aide Sharrath Marar of Northstar Entertainment are jointly producing this multi-starrer.
Meanwhile, the suspense over who is going to wield the megaphone continues. Though initial reports suggested that Dolly of Tadakha fame would helm the project, now grapevine is that director Sampath Nandi, who was supposed to direct Gabbar Singh 2, may also join the project as a compensation.
Talk is that Pawan is not satisfied with the way GS-2 script shaped up. Also, he is apparently disappointed with other things like he couldn’t find the female lead who would do justice for the role. All this would have prompted him to hold the much awaited project given that there are huge expectations on it. He may ask any other director (probably Trivikram Srinivas) to come up tight script.
The other talk is that Pawan would have spiked Gabbar Singh 2 forever. An industry source opined, “Since Pawan scored a blockbuster with family entertainer Attarintiki Daaredi, he wants to do more lighter-vein roles now. He seems to want to take break from Mass-Masala films for time-being. Yet nothing can be confirmed now as he is unpredictable.” So, it is yet to be confirmed whether Pawan postponed Gabbar Singh 2 for a while or cancelled it forever. On one front he is doing Oh My God remake, on other front his Gabbar Singh 2 is deferred or taking a backseat. Certainly, a mixed news for all Pawan’s fans.
