Srikanth Addala’s rise and fall is a very curious case. He was very lucky to have got the chance of directing Superstar Mahesh babu and Venkatesh in his second film itself, and he made his mark with SVSC. ‘Mukunda’, and ‘Brahmotsavam’ especially however have pushed him into abyss. The director had to wait for around 20 months to get the approval for his next film.
Sometime ago, reports emerged that Allu Aravind asked Addala to come up with a family subject for his son Allu Arjun. Addala kept working on the script, and Bunny got busy with other films. Now, Gulte has exclusively learnt that Allu camp has given a go ahead to Addala, but his film will star Sirish instead of Bunny.
Our sources have informed that Allu Aravind was impressed with the script, a family subject, penned by Addala and hence offered to produce the film on Geetha Arts banner, with Sirish playing the hero. Addala was anyway in no position to let go an offer from the Mega producer, and he agreed. This could be Sirish’s immediate next film after he wraps up Vi Anand’s sci-fi thriller.
An official announcement regarding this project will be made soon.
