Kalyan is also awaiting the release of Sriram Venu's directorial Vakeel Saab, which is a Telugu remake of Bollywood's Pink. He plays the role of a lawyer in the film. Vakeel Saab will mark the actor's return to the big screen after two years after Trivikram Srinivas' action drama Agnyaathavaasi, which released in 2018.
Nivetha Thomas, Anjali, and Prakash Raj are going to play important roles in the movie.
Venu Sriram has been given the task of directing the thriller while Boney Kapoor and Dil Raju bankroll the project. According to The Indian Express, Vakeel Saab was supposed to release in May, 2020. The coronavirus pandemic forced makers to push back the release date.
Meanwhile, he is also working on Krish Jagarlamudi's yet-untitled project, whose first look was released on Kalyan's 49th birthday.
