Sunil is going through lean phase. All his recent movies bombed at the box-office. He has lost the glory. He is now struggling to deliver even an average movie. The recent flops – Mr. Pellikoduku, Bhimavaram Bullodu and Krishnashtami – have made him to rethink about his choice of scripts.
Moving from comedies cost him dearly. Now he is back to his roots with his upcoming release ‘Jakkanna’ that has more stress on comedy. The film is releasing on 29th July amidst competition. ‘Kabali’ will be completing just one week of its run by the time ‘Jakanna’ comes to the theaters and a week later Sunil will have to compete with other movies like ‘Srirastu Subhamastu’ and ‘Manamantha’.
So, Sunil has tough time to deliver a hit. It is going to be litmus test for his star value.
