Boney Kapoor had produced the Tamil remake of the 2016 film Pink with Ajith Kumar in the lead. Now he has also remade the same film in Telugu, with Pawan Kalyan headlining the project called Vakeel Saab.
The title and first look of the Telugu remake was shared by Boney Kapoor, who is co-producing the movie with Dil Raju under the banner of Sri Venkateswara Creations and Bay View Projects.
Sharing the picture, he wrote, "Sri Venkateswara Creations in association with Bayview Projects proudly presents Power Star Pawan Kalyan as VakeelSaab." In the poster, Pawan Kalyan can be seen reading a book dressed sitting in a shambly setting, surrounded by worn out books and old furniture.
The first look is quite unlike the posters of the Hindi and Tamil versions of Pink. While those films also featured the female actors on the poster, the Telugu poster focuses only on the male lead. Take a look:
