There can be no denying that 2017 was a rather forgettable year for Telugu star Gopichand. In July, he suffered a big setback when his highly ambitious Gautham Nanda underperformed at the box office despite getting decent reviews. An action-drama, it featured him in a new avatar and saw him share screen space with Hansika Motwani. Thereafter, in November, things turned from bad to worse when his long-delayed Oxygen arrived in theatres and did not live upto expectations. A Jyothi Krishna directorial, it also had Raashi Khanna in the lead and failed to impress critics.
With 2017 in the rearview, Gopichand has turned his attention to his latest and 25th film. Now, its makers have confirmed that it will be titled Pantham and will hit screens on May 18. Talking about the film, producer Radhamohan and the shoot is progressing at a good speed an added that Gopihan will be seen in a new avatar here.
“We are happy to produce Gopichand’s 25th film under our Sri Satya Sai Arts Banner. Pantham is the title finalized for the film. Shoot is progressing as per the schedules. So for, one song and some talkie parts have been completed. An intensive action sequence which will be interval bang in the film has been shot in Aluminum Factory. Director Chakri is making the film that has good message in it as a commercial entertainer. Hero Gopichand will be seen in a very powerful character. You need to wait for few more days to know reason behind Gopichand’s Pantham. We are planning to wrap up all the remaining works at the earliest to release the movie on May 18,” he said.
