He is Daniel Sekhar. Rana Daggubati gets to play an aggressive character in 'Bheemla Nayak', a film starring Pawan Kalyan as a cop. There is a 'Gabbar Singh' reference as well in the blitz that was released today to introduce Daniel.
Here goes the line:
"నీ మొగుడు గబ్బర్ సింగ్ అంట..? స్టేషన్ లో టాక్ నడుస్తోంది...
నేనెవరో తెలుసా ధర్మేంద్ర ... హీరో ..హీరో..!
డేనీ ఎంటర్ టైన్ మెంట్స్ ప్రొడక్షన్ నంబర్ వన్...!"
The film is currently in the production phase. Producer Suryadeva Naga Vamsi has confirmed that the movie will head to the theatres on 12 January 2022.
Amidst rumours that Aishwarya Rajesh has opted out of the project due to dates issues, the makers have not mentioned her name today. If Nithya Menen is paired up with Pawan, the remake also has Rao Ramesh, Murali Sharma, Samuthirakani, Raghu Babu, Narra Srinu, among others, in key roles. Music is by Thaman.
