Guru Prasad's previous movie Mata had a realistic theme, whereas Eddelu Manjunath was based on a drunkard and a lazy brat. Both were message-oriented movies and were satires on the present society. Navarasa-nayaka Jaggesh had played the lead role in Mata and Eddelu Manjunatha.
Jaggesh and Guru Prasad, who worked like a inseparable team, have parted their ways after the movie Eddelu Manjunatha, which was delayed because of their difference. Now, Jaggy's brother Komal Kumar will be seen in the lead role in Director's Special. Jaggesh's loss is Komal's gain.
Guru's upcoming movie Director's Special will be based on the in and outs of Gandhi Nagar (Sandalwood). In his previous movies, Gandhi Nagar was just a part of his stories, but now he has taken it as a lead story. Cast, crew and other details are under wraps and the movie is yet to be announced officially.
