It is known that senior hero Venkatesh and Mega hero Varun Tej will work together for a multistarrer, F2 (Fun & Frustration). Hat-trick director Anil Ravipudi will helm this project and successful producer Dil Raju will bankroll it. Milky beauties Tamannah and Mehreen are tentatively attached to the project. Despite such promising team, what’s worrying film buffs is the speculation that the film is a ‘freemake’.
It is speculated that “F2” is a freemake of cult Bollywood comedy film, “Hera Pheri”. Directed by Priyadarshan and starring Akshay Kumar and Sunil Shetty, “Hera Pheri” has been ranked by Indian movie lovers as the best Indian comedy film ever made. In fact, the film has already been remade in Telugu as ‘Dhana Laxmi I Love You’, which bombed at box office.
Buzz is that Anil Ravipudi didn’t lift the plot of ‘Hera Pheri’ as it is but took the core plot, made some modifications, added Telugu nativity and his trademark humor, and prepared the script of “F2”. Venky and Varun are likely to reprise the roles of Sunil Shetty and Akshay Kumar.
We have witnessed what a huge fiasco ‘Agnyaathavaasi’ freemake issue became. Fans wish the team of ‘F2’ doesn’t face such consequences and the ‘Hera Pheri’ freemake reports are just speculations.
