Pawan Kalyan is all set to return to acting with a full-on historical costume drama which the period specialist Krish Jagarlamudi will direct.
The film will not only be the costliest ever in Pawan Kalyan’s career with an estimated budget of 150-170 crores rupees, it would feature Pawan Kalyan in a number of intricate fight/action scenes where he will have to take off his shirt.
Says a source, “Pawan has not done such slick Avengers/ Marvel styled stunts in his career.It is one thing to do the gimmicky action that Telugu cinema specializes in. But for him to carry off the Thor-Ironman kind of action Pawan is needed to seriously get into shape.”
The actor who took a longish sabbatical from acting to concentrate on politics, is not in the best of shape physically.
“It was Krish who suggested that a fitter Pawan Kalyan would be more agile on screen. Pawan has already started on his weight-loss strategies,” says the source.
