Sampoornesh Babu, who rose to prominence through his comedic roles in spoof movies like ‘Hrudaya Kaleyam,’ ‘Kobbarimatta,’ and ‘Singham 123,’ faced challenges in achieving significant success as a comedian. However, he is now poised to embark on a new phase of his career with the highly anticipated release of ‘Martin Luther King.’ This film, creatively produced by director Venkatesh Maha of ‘C/O Kancharapalem’ fame, promises to be a unique project.
A @PujaKolluru Directorial and yes my next film!
A remake of an essential film is equal to the remakes of all the epics from mother languages to other languages. It is for the people who couldn’t afford reading or watching them in the original language.
Let’s celebrate this… https://t.co/ELLc0MNMOq
