Megastar Chiranjeevi’s daughter, Sushmita Konidela has turned into a producer with the web series ‘Shoot-Out At Alair’ (the ZEE5 Original). It ended up as a disaster but she is unfazed and is coming up with another interesting project in her production house.
She has acquired the remake rights of the Tamil-language crime thriller ‘8 Thottakkal’ paying a fancy price. It may be noted that ‘8 Thottakkal’ itself was inspired by the 1949 Japanese movie ‘Stray Dog’. In 2018, it was remade in Kannada as ‘8MM Bullet’.
It is not clear if the movie is being made for theater or the OTT space. Sushmita has been an active costume designer in Tollywood, especially for her father. She has worked on Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy and Rangasthalam and is now doing Acharya.Follow @THEPANIPURI
