'Bullet Rani' not spoof on 'Gabbar Singh': Director
Posted on Sep 02 2014 | IANS
Chennai, Sep 2 : Telugu-Kannada bilingual "Bullet Rani" features actress Nisha Kothari in the role of a police officer, but the movie is not a spoof of Pawan Kalyan-starrer "Gabbar Singh", says its director Suresh Goswami.
"I don't mind if my film is called the female version of 'Gabbar Singh', but it's definitely not a spoof. In fact, Nisha's role is inspired by Pawan's tough cop act in his film. We've only tried to portray a strong woman in a police officer's role," Goswami told IANS.
He is "confident" that "Bullet Rani" will give Nisha a much needed break from her image.
"Nisha is a talented actress. She's been typecast in certain roles, and therefore, we haven't seen the best of her. I'm confident that 'Bullet Rani' will present her in a different avatar and that's going to win her laurels," he said.
The film is currently in its final schedule of shooting.
