The latest news related to the Telugu remake is, the Venkatesh starrer has been titled Naarappa. The Tollywood superstar yesterday took to his Instagram account to share the first look posters from the action thriller.
Talking about the first look posters, one must add that Venkatesh has given complete justice to his character and has nailed it by look wise.
Naarappa will go on floors today. The Venkatesh starrer will be helmed by Srikanth Addala, and it will be bankrolled under Suresh productions.
