Actor-turned-politician Pawan Kalyan made a power-packed comeback on the screen after a two-year sabbatical with his film Vakeel Saab. The Telugu film, starring Shruti Haasan in an important role, is a remake of Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan's Pink. The film deals with the subject of consent. Vakeel Saab has been in the headlines since its trailer dropped on the internet. The video gave a glimpse of the intense courtroom drama and showed Pawan Kalyan as a lawyer, in an action-packed avatar.
