'Hari Hara Veera Mallu': Bobby Deol joins Pawan Kalyan starrer
Pawan Kalyan's Hari Hara Veera Mallu is amping up its cast ensemble, and how! Bollywood actor Bobby Deol has now joined the cast of the historical drama and will reportedly play Mughal emperor Aurangzeb. The multilingual, pan-Indian film is helmed by Krish Jagarlamudi (Vedam, Gabbar is Back) and is slated to release on March 30, 2023, in Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, Malayalam, and Hindi.
Why does this story matter?
- Deol's association will amplify the film's reach in the North Indian market.
- Kalyan has maintained a successful streak lately—in 2021, he was seen in the hit film Vakeel Saab, followed by Bheemla Nayak in February 2022, which also turned out to be a hit.
- Thus, all eyes are now on Hari Hara Veera Mallu, touted to be the most expensive film of Kalyan's career.
Fans are excited to see what Deol adds to film
The makers on Saturday took to social media to share the news of Bobby Deol coming on board the ambitious, large-scale project. They also posted a brief video welcoming the Soldier actor to the team.
