'Andhadhun' Telugu remake to be titled 'Maestro;' Nithiin's look revealed
The Telugu remake of the National Award-winning Hindi blockbuster Andhadhun has been in the making for some time and today, the makers announced that it will be called Maestro. On the occasion of lead star Nithiin's birthday, his look was also unveiled. He will be essaying the role portrayed by Ayushmann Khurrana in the original. The movie also features Tamannaah Bhatia and Nabha Natesh.
Nithiin perfectly embodies the 'blind' protagonist
After looking at the image, it's safe to say that Nithiin has perfectly stepped into the shoes of the 'blind' protagonist. He donned black shades and held a walking stick in the poster. Fans of Andhadhun would notice that he seems to be walking on a road-crossing made up of piano keys. Maestro will have a theatrical release on June 11.
The original movie had a similar poster
To recall, in one of the posters of Andhadhun, Khurrana was also seen walking on piano keys. He was accompanied by Radhika Apte, who played Sophie in the film. Notably, Maestro is special for Nithiin for another reason as it will be his 30th film. The movie is helmed by Merlapaka Gandhi. The Tollywood star is currently enjoying the success of Rang De.
