It’s not unusual comedians turning heroes and many across the film industry have tried their luck as heroes. Right from yesteryear comedians like Raja babu, Chalam and Padmanabham to this generation comedians like Brahmanandam, Ali, Babu Mohan and Dhanraj. Though some of them had partial success, none could make it big and returned to their usual mold as comedians.
It was only Ali, who succeeded as a hero to an extent and completed 50 films as a hero. Soon, he realized he is not hero material and comedy is his forte. Ali has shifted to the usual comedian roles and he’s still ruling as a top comedian. Despite moderate success as a hero, Sunil is still trying his luck and seems to be in no mood to get back to comedy roles.
Now, another young comedian is set to try his luck as the hero. He’s none other than Saptagiri who has created a special identity for himself with his Nellore dialect, and will be soon star as a hero with “Sapthagiri Express.” The film has already completed a major part of the shooting without much hype. “Sapthagiri Express” is a remake of the Tamil film “Thirudan Police,” for which the director made some changes to suit the Telugu setting.
