In December itself, Pawan has wrapped up the shooting of Vakeel Saab in Hyderabad and a series of BTS stills from the last working day went viral on the internet. Initially scheduled for a massive release in summer 2020, the film got postponed to 2021 following the outbreak of coronavirus and the subsequent lockdown. After a gap of eight long months, the actor resumed the shoot in the first week of November and shot all the portions that require him in quick succession. He is reprising the role of Amitabh Bachchan in this Telugu remake of Bollywood film ‘Pink’. ‘Thala’ Ajith played the main role in the Tamil version.
Vakeel Saab is directed by Venu Sriram of ‘MCA’ fame and jointly bankrolled by Dil Raju and Boney Kapoor. While Nivetha Thomas is stepping into the shoes of Taapsee Pannu, Anjali and Ananya Nagalla are reprising the roles of Kirti Kulhari and Andrea Tariang from the original Hindi film. Shruti Haasan is reprising the role of Vidya Balan from the Tamil remake of Pink titled as ‘Nerkonda Paarvai’.
While Thiru has penned the dialogues for Vakeel Saab, PS Vinod handled the camera and SS Thaman composed the music.
