His fans have been waiting to watch him in a film that lives upto his past glory and when few films stated that he will be part of important cameos or special guest roles, they got slightly excited as they can see him trying big characters in those films, at least.
Nagarajuna completed Brahmastra but no one knew about Marakkar with Mohan Lal and Priyadarshan. He is a good friend of the actor and director, both.
He shared the trailer of the film and he did not appear in any shot, even in Telugu one. The news reports suggested that he had quit the film very quietly and Arjun Sarja replaced him.
Why? The actor never shared about it to anyone and until he decides to shed some light on it, we can only speculate.
Right now, he is busy shooting for his next in Solomon direction, Wild Dog. The movie is expected to release some time in Summer.
