Megastar Chiranjeevi is the best that you can get in Telugu Cinema. And if you"re looking for a big break in Telugu films and if you get yours with the megastar then you are surely envied. But it seems that the megastar himself has not been finding it easy to keep up hits and losses ratio. The most recent example is the stars latest release Shankardada Zindabad. Most probably hoping to get a hit soon, he has now signed his next film – his 150th -with director N Shankar.
The film"s story was discussed with the megastar, which he approved. Telugu Cinemas busiest writing team - the Paruchuri brothers – were brought in to write the films script. But after the debacle of Shankardada Zindabad, the star must waiting for a career boost. Stalin – in which he acted with Trisha – was a mega hit and revived his career. Trisha"s contemporary Nayantara has been roped in to act opposite the megastar.
The movie did well for Trisha. It hiked her price per film up by 10 lakhs and she became even more hot property. This could mean only more success for Nayan as she has had a good string of successes so far. But it seems that"s he has bluntly refused the film with the megastar citing her other projects. She has Billa 2007 with Ajith and Yaradi Nee Mohini with Dhanush.
In the past heroines who have had such great offers come their way have dropped their smaller projects or have regretted their decision to forgo these offers. She is in no dire need of a hit as such. But who is not in need of a hit whatever state their acting careers are in? Or will she be more interested to pursue an alternative Bollywoods inroad? Trisha and Asin have managed to start with theirs. . So what will Nayan do?
