It’s raining biopics in Telugu cinema. After ‘Mahanati’ we have biopics on NT Rama Rao and YS Rajasekhar Reddy in pipeline and in the making.
There is also a biopic planned on Pullela Gopichand. Sye Raa is also in a way a biopic based on the life of warrior fighter Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy. Now to add to the list we might have one more biopic and this time a film based on star heroine and favourite to many who grew in the late 70s and 80s.
Producer of ‘Pelli Choopulu’ and ‘Mental Madhilo’ Raj Kandukuri is of the idea to make a biopic based on the life of actress Soundarya. The subject for the biopic is it seems ready but Raj Kandukuri is yet to consult the family members of Soundarya to seek their consent for the production.
Soundarya was one of the leading actresses of late 1990s and early 2000s and she had an unfortunate ending in a chopper accident during elections campaign in 2004.
