Pawan Kalyan has been gearing up for the release of his upcoming Telugu film, Vakeel Saab. The remake of the Hindi film Pink was slated for a May 15 release but was called off owing to the current pandemic. Kalyan is essaying the role of a lawyer, played by Amitabh Bachchan in the Tapsee Pannu-starrer Hindi original.
An image from the Telugu remake has made an online entry and is surfacing across social media platforms. It shows Kalyan in a courtroom structure supposedly addressing the judge in the scene. One can also witness the film’s actress Anjali in the frame who is found sitting dressed in a simple outfit while Kalyan perfectly portraying the lawyer’s role.
