Gopi Chand- Tremendous change from villain to Gautam Nanda
Born in a film makers’ family, Gopichand may be the only actor of current generation who appeared in both negative and positive characters. Even after attempting different roles, he is still struggling to make a mark on the industry.
Gopichand’s father, T.Krishna is well known director who delivered red-classics like Pratighatana, Repati Pourulu, Neti Bharatham. He expired due to cancer when Gopichand was 8 years old.
His brother worked as an associate director to Mutyala Subbayya. Exactly when Premchand started a film under his home banner, he breathed his last in an unfortunate car accident. Gopichand also has a sister who is a dentist. Gopichand completed his Engineering in Russia. Gopichand is married to Reshma, niece of actor Meka Srikanth and they blessed with a baby boy.
After taking one year dialogue modulation course with Veteran actor Kakarala, Gopichand started his filmy career with Tholi Valapu (2001) but the movie went on to become a big disaster. The turning point of his career came the next year when Jayam released. Gopichand donned the role of baddie and he won accolades for its excellent portrayal. He continued villain roles in Nijam and Varsham.
Though he earned good name in the villain roles, the ‘Hero’ bug bit him once again and he played lead role in AS Ravi Kumar Chowdary’s Yagnam, Parchuri Murali’s Andhrudu and Amma Rajashekar’s Ranam. All the movies were good hits.
Finally, Lakshyam which released in 2007 brought him the biggest hit of his career. Next followed Ontari in 2008 which was again a decent hit and the Souryam that released the same year went on to become a super hit. When everyone started writing him off, he bounced back in 2013 with Sahasam. The movie is the costliest movie in Gopichand’s career but went on to become a decent hit.
He is all set to enthrall the audience with his upcoming film Gautam Nanda. Directed by Sampath Nandi, Gopichand looks dashing in his look that has garnered a lot of interest. Gopichand plays dual roles, one of which is negative.
Hansika and Catherine Tresa are the two female leads. Gopichand will be seen playing the role of a rich businessman’s son in the film. It is also heard that Gopi’s character will undergo a character transformation in the story.
