Director Srinu Vaitla can go for any extent to offer awesome comedy and entertainment for audience with his films. As seen in last Dookudu, the core assets of movie were full length entertainment mixed with star power of Mahesh Babu. Now, the new project from Srinu to release in next few months would be baadshah with Junior NTR. As per the talk from few sources in Film Nagar, it is known that Srinu is making this film as a free-make of Bollywood hit Singh is King.
Though the actual reliability in the gossip is questionable, Singh is King has too many commercial elements to cook a hit subject suitable for Tollywood with backdrop of mafia dealt in humorous angle. Reports of all top comedians appearing in baadshah and a lengthy foreign schedule planned in Italy are to serve as more evidences of film might be a copy of Singh is King which was shot primarily in Australia and Egypt. In fact, baadshah was earlier publicized with the title of Mafia which was changed in due course of time. Heroine in the film is Kajal while NTR is also to appear in two different attires.
