The first look poster of the Telugu remake of of the Hindi film Pink (2016), starring Pawan Kalyan, was released today. Titled Vakeel Saab, the poster sees Pawan sitting with his legs stretched, sporting a very relaxed look. 

The actor returns to acting with this project following a brief hiatus. The film will be directed by Venu Sriram, who was recently signed to direct Allu Arjun's Icon (2020). The director will be collaborating with Pawan for the first time. He will complete shooting this project and then commence work on Icon. 

The Telugu remake, which will be very similar to the Tamil version, Nerkonda Paarvai (2019), will maintain a fine balance between the social message and the commercial elements. Pawan has been given a 20-day call sheet.

Apparently, the actor was not due to join the sets till the second week of March due to his political commitments. However, due to change in plans, he joined the sets in February. 

The film is being jointly produced by Boney Kapoor and Dil Raju, and will also star Nivetha Thomas and Anjali in crucial roles. The project may features dialogues by filmmaker Trivikram Srinivas, a regular collaborator with Pawan.

The Tamil version of Pink, which released last year, starred Ajith in the role of a lawyer with bipolar issues. Directed by H Vinoth, Nerkonda Paarvai went on to strike gold at the box office, with worldwide collections of over Rs150 crore.

Pink, which starred Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu in key roles, is the story of three women, who are aided by a lawyer in a molestation case against three boys from influential backgrounds.
