Actor Sunil is said to be in talks for an important remake. The comedian-turned-hero is likely to headline the Telugu remake of the Tamil-language hit 'Mandela', which had Yogi Babu in the lead.
After watching 'Mandela', a political satire, on Netflix, producer Anil Sunkara reportedly bought its remake rights. The film is critically acclaimed. Set in a village, it's about how political leaders pine for Yogi Babu's vote.
Sunil is believed to be interested in headlining the film. If he does act in the remake, it will be a big opportunity for the 'Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo' comedian to turn a new leaf as a lead actor.
Producer Anil Sunkara is usually into making big-ticket and medium-range movies. The remake of 'Mandela' is expected to be made on a reasonably decent budget.
