Director Maruthi is in a red-hot form after scoring a blockbuster with his recent film Prati Roju Pandaage. Starring Sai Dharam Tej in the lead role, this family entertainer went on to become one of the biggest hits of 2019. It is still having a good run at the box office and will continue this dream run till Sankranthi.
Meanwhile, we hear that Maruthi is actually supposed to do a film with producer DVV Danayya's son, after Prati Roju Pandaage. Apparently, Danayya also offered Maruthi a remuneration of Rs. 6 crores for his son's debut film. But, sources claim that Maruthi is not a part of this project anymore.
It seems that the director doesn't want to do a film with debutant, especially after scoring such a big hit. Some other sources claimed that Maruthi demanded more remuneration, which Danayya refused to pay. Thus, the Ee Rojullo director eventually backed out from the film.
We now hear that Sriwass will helm this movie. Reports claim that Sriwass doesn't have any projects in hand right now and will do this film as his next. The director's last film was Saakshyam, which had Bellamkonda Sreenivas as the lead. It was a flop at the box-office.
