The Tollywood Power Star Pawan Kalyan would play Amitabh Bachchan’s role from the original. He has allotted a 20-day call sheet for it. Sriram Venu will be the director for this remake. Boney Kapoor and Dil Raju will produce the film jointly.It now appears that the star is impressed with the project and so he decided to don the greasepaint again. We expect an official confirmation on the same soon.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter to confirm the same and wrote, “BIGGG NEWS… After remaking #Pink in #Tamil, Boney Kapoor joins hands with Dil Raju to remake #Pink in #Telugu… The #Telugu remake will star Pawan Kalyan… Directed by Sriram Venu… Pawan Kalyan was last seen in #Agnyaathavaasi .

“#Pink” and Pawan Kalyan were trended the whole Saturday afternoon on Twitter with tweets.
He was last seen on screen in last year’s Telugu action drama film Agnyaathavaasi. Pawan Kalyan returns to acting after a gap of a year. He was occupied with his political commitments as President of the Jana Sena Party.

Producer Dil Raju was determined on Pawan Kalyan’s comeback. He referred several directors to manage their next film. Directors Krish Jagarlamudi and Harish Shankar narrated their scripts to Pawan, but they failed to impress him with them.
