Rana Daggubati will be seen in Pawan Kalyan starrer Bheemla Nayak. He is reprising the role of Prithviraj Sukumaran’s Koshy Kurien (Ayyappanum Koshiyum) in the movie and his character is named Daniel Shekar. On Monday, the first look of Rana as Daniel was unveiled and Prithviraj was mindblown with the first look of Rana. Sukumaran launched the character poster of Rana and also heaped praise for Daggubati.
Sharing the poster, Prithviraj wrote, “Bheemla Nayak/ @AyyappanumKoshiyum Ayyappanum Koshiyum is a very very special film to me personally for a multitude of reasons and Koshy Kurien will forever remain one among the most iconic characters I have had the privilege of playing. Sachy and me have had so many conversations regarding the potential remakes of this very special film and we never imagined it would be this giant project with the stalwarts of the industry associated with it in Telugu. With legends like PawanKalyan sir, Trivikram sir, Ravi chetan (Ravi K Chandran) leading the way, with Thaman handling the music, you know this is going to be one hell of a ride!
But what gives me even more happiness, is the fact that dear friend and brother Rana Daggubati , reprises Koshy Kurien in Telugu! Bro..you look so freaking cool and you have way more swag than I ever did!
Privileged to present Rana Daggubati as Daniel Shekar!
PS: Rocking the mundu (dhothi) bro!
