Suresh Babu is very happy with the response of his recently released production venture Narappa in which Venkatesh Daggubati and Priyamani are playing the lead roles. The movie was released on Amazon Prime video on 20th July. D Suresh Babu says that in the absence of good scripts, it is financially viable to back remakes of hit movies as they have already been tested in front of the audiences.
Narappa is a remake of Tamil hit film Asuran for which its lead star Dhanush had won the National Award for best actor earlier this year. The movie revolves around a farmer who goes on the run with his family after his son murders an upper-caste landlord in a fit of vengeance.
The makers of Narappa closed the deal after Amazon Prime paid a bomb for the streaming rights of Venkatesh and Priyamani starrer. The makers closed all the deals for Rs 40 Cr. Now the reports are coming that the producers of Narappa have pocketed a profit of Rs 17 Cr through this film.
Now Suresh Babu is looking forward to releasing his next Drushyam 2 the Telugu remake of the Malayalam drama Drishyam 2 which starred Mohanlal. In the remake version, Venkatesh is reprising the role of Rambabu.
