Star writer Kona Venkat, who has been part of half a dozen consecutive Telugu flops in the past two years, looks to be making deeper inroads into Bollywood. Top Bollywod media houses have confirmed that Abhishek Bachchan has signed Prabhu Deva’s next directorial, ‘Lefty’, a project penned by Kona Venkat. Talking about the film, Kona said that ‘Lefty’ is a science fiction thriller and he compared it with Suriya’s ‘Ghajini’.
‘The film is about an enigmatic guy who is left-handed, just like Jr Bachchan is in real life. How he turns into the savior of his city when situations turn worse forms the crux of ‘Lefty’. I was signed by Abhishek Bachchan three years ago after he got impressed with my single line narration,’ Kona added.
It may be recalled that Kona Venkat had formerly written Salman Khan’s ‘Ready’, a remake of the Telugu film of same name. Kona has also written a script for Sridevi and he claims that the film will soon go on floors.
