Is Nuvvevaru a remake of Adhe Kangal?
The film is directed by Hari and stars Aadhi Pinisetty and Taapsee Pannu in the lead
If reports are anything to go by, Aadhi Pinisetty and Taapsee Pannu’s upcoming film, tentatively titled Nuvvevaru and directed by Hari, is inspired by the Tamil romantic action thriller, Adhe Kangal (2017). The film’s story is centred around a visually-challenged chef who gets his eyesight back only to realise that the girl he is in love with has been abducted.
In the film, Aadhi Pinisetty plays the chef, while Taapsee essays the role of the girl who goes missing. The idea of a protagonist playing a visually-challenged role is said to have attracted the makers of Nuvvevaru to the story filled with several twists and turns. “The team believes that the film breaks the mould and makes a sincere attempt to tap the potential of the lead actors and present them in a unique way,” says a source.
The makers of the film have withheld the details of the story and it is still unclear if they have acquired the remake rights of Adhe Kangal. Produced jointly by Kona Film Corporation and MVV Cinema, Nuvvevaru also features Vennela Kishore as a constable and Ritika Singh in a crucial role.
