Gopala Gopala is known to be the remake of blockbuster Bollywood movie starring Akshay Kumar. The movie was a satirical take on God and Godmen. Gopala Gopala will also be in similar lines and while Venkatesh is playing lead character played by Akshay Kumar in original, Pawan will play role of God Krishna.
While it was known earlier that Bollywood senior actor Mithun Chakraborthy who played a godman character in the original would play the same role.
However, because of shooting delay of Gopala Gopala, the Bollywood actor gave it a pass acting in the Telugu remake version. But before any of us would fret about it Pawan suggested makers to rope in senior actor Sai Kumar for the same role. Pawan voted for the senior because of his voice, we are told!
