Sports dramas are the toast of the season across the Indian film industry and here’s another Telugu film Kousalya Krishnamurthy, riding on the trend, featuring Aishwarya Rajesh in the lead as a budding woman cricketer. To release on August 23, the film is an official remake of the Tamil hit Kanaa.
Originally produced by actor Sivakarthikeyan, Kanaa’s remake rights were bagged by noted producer KS Rama Rao in Telugu, who has roped in Bheemineni Sreenivas Rao as the director. Jhansi, Rajendra Prasad play key roles in the sports film where Sivakarthikeyan reprises his role from the original.
For those Telugu film enthusiasts eager to get a sneak peek of what Kousalya Krishnamurthy has to offer, the original Kanaa is currently streaming on Zee5. Though the film’s sensibilities may not exactly find relevance among Telugu crowds, the availability of the original is sure to offer an adequate insight to an eager spectator. Will this cricket drama make a splash at the theatres? Only time shall give us a clear answer.
