Tanikella Bharani is a staunch devotee of Lord Shiva and now he is planning to make a movie on Bhakta Kannappa. He reportedly chose Sunil for the role. The comedian turned hero is reportedly very excited about the role and gave his immediate nod. The film will be made in Telugu, Tamil and Kannada languages. Currently, Tanikella Bharani is finishing the script and the film will go to the sets from April 2014.
Tanikella Bharani recently directed Midhunam which was greeted to acclaim from all quarters. The movie was even considered for India’s nomination to the Oscars. But it lost the chance to Gujrati film, The Good Road.
