Some people are heroes on-screen and some are heroes in real life too. Today is the birthday of one such man who has been a real and a reel hero for years. Actor Gopichand turns 41 on June 12. We know him as the man who daunted everyone with his negative characters and swept the same masses off their feet with his charming roles. The actor has seen many ups and downs, not only at the box office but also in his personal life.
Watch the film here:
At the age of eight, Gopichand lost his father, T. Krishna, who was a filmmaker. Many years later, as he prepared to complete his engineering studies in Russia, he lost his elder son too, who had recently started working on a film of his own. After acing his exams despite the tragedy, Gopichand returned as and to be a hero. Many hits and misses later, we take pride in hailing him as the Action Star and Macho Star.
Even his journey in films wasn’t an easy one. He may have started as the main hero in Tholi Valapu, but fame only came when he wore the bad man’s mask. When we thought that negative roles are all he is capable of, he surprised us once again. Well, the wait may have been long but it is definitely worth it. With the world still struggling to cope with Coronavirus, there isn’t much to do for his fans. But there’s always a way out and here’s our suggestion — Soukyam.
Soukyam is a 2015 romantic-action entertainer with Gopichand and Regina Cassandra in the lead roles. The film is directed by A.S. Ravikumar Chowdary and produced by V. Anand Prasad under the banner of Bhavya Creations. The film also features Mukesh Rishi, Pradeep Rawat, Brahmanandam and Devan in other important roles. The title translates to comfort, which is exactly what you can do while watching it.
On that note, we hope you enjoy the film and we wish the actor many more successes.
