All these days speculations are rife that Koratala Siva convinced Mahesh with the same story he has written for Ram Charan and rejected by Jr NTR. As this director’s second film was started with Charan and got cancelled after a couple days of shoot, these rumours got wings. But Koratala Siva is quick to rubbish them.
“The story I’ve prepared for Mahesh Babu garu’s Srimanthudu is different from the film I’m supposed to work wtih Charan garu. That film and this film are total contrast to each other. There is no iota of truth in rumours that I’ve narrated same story to Mahesh and got approved”, said Koratala today, clearing air over the rumours. What’s more? How romantic Mahesh is going to romance Shruti Haasan in this flick? “Don’t expect duets like songs in this movie. Srimanthudu is full of family emotions and songs are situational, which drive the story forward”, he says.
Koratala Siva is all praises for Mahesh Babu’s acting prowess. “I’ve just limited myself to a writer this time. Because Mahesh delivers the best himself with a director giving him so much inputs. I’m proud to work with a greatest actor of our times”. Srimanthudu is set for August 7th release date.
