Uday Prakash, the director of Auto Raja, has claimed that Ajay Rao did not show any interest in upcoming movie after signing the film. This was evident when he chose to skip the workshops and thereby delaying the project from January. The makers of the film also noticed his lack of interest in the later meetings.
The director adds that Ajay was not sure of when he would join the shoots, which made the director for an alternative choice. However, the actor has something different to say. According to him, as he was busy with four films, he could not commit to Auto Raja. Though he asked the movie bosses to delay the project, they were not keen to postpone.
Auto Raja is a remake of later Shankar Nag's blockbuster Kannada film of the same name. The director of the film has changed the script to suit the tastes of the modern-day audience.
