Hero Akash accuses Tollywood of robbing his chances
Jai Akash, a known star Telugu and Tamil, is back in the headlines. Recently, he accused Puri Jagannadh of stealing the concept of his film in iSmart Shankar and demanded money.
He also said that he wants Rs 2 crore in compensation as he had shot half of the film already. In a sensational interview, he stated that many people in Telugu had tried to crush him.
He also expressed his interest to do hero or villain characters which would give him scope for performance. He is clear that he doesn’t want to do supporting roles or any cameo role.
Explaining why he took up direction, he said, “Is it easy to direct a film while playing the role of a hero? Why would I take up direction if I received offers from promising filmmakers? None of the Top Directors approached Me after 'Anandam' became a blockbuster. I had offered a chance to new directors but they delivered below-par products. That is why I turned director.”
