In line with the IPL season this year, Telugu cinema is coming up with films that will have its central characters playing cricket. Though this can be seen as a wild coincidence, it is quite cool to see it all happen at the same time, becoming a trending topic for fans to debate on. With Aishwarya Rajesh’s hit venture, Kanaa, setting the tone right for Kollywood, here are three Telugu films which will deal with the game.
This film is the first one on the list as it focusses on the life of a late bloomer who tries to cut his path to the Indian team. With a talented actor like Nani in the lead, one can expect nothing less than a top-rated performance. Anirudh’s music will be the icing on the cake, another reason to watch out for the film.
Nag Chaitanya – Samantha’s Majili
The cutest couple in Tollywood is getting back together for their first film since their marriage, in Majili. Directed by Shiva Nirvana, the film is said to focus on life after marriage, with status symbols and misunderstandings in the frame. Nag Chaitanya is said to have a substantial amount of screen time in a cricketer’s shoes.
Vijay Deverakonda – Rashmika Mandanna’s Dear Comrade
Vijay Deverakonda and Rashmika had earlier delivered a blockbuster with Geetha Govindam, leading to high expectations for their second union. For a change, it is a woman here who plays the cricketer, and it would be interesting to see how director Bharat Kamma would infuse her portions into what is a student political drama.
So for fans of the sport, cricket won't be limited to the stadiums this year!
