In this flick, Gopichand plays the role of a secret agent who works as a bank employee. This film has a backdrop of rivalry between India and Pakistan which is a serious issue. Gopichand's 'Saahasam' directed by Chandrasekhar Yeleti which had the backdrop of India-Pakistan rivalry became a good hit and a memorable one in his career.
So, Gopichand is hoping that 'Chanakya' will repeat the same magic and give him his much needed for which he has been waiting for a long time. The film has to face huge competition with biggies like 'Sye Raa' and 'War' this weekend.
