Telugu movie Doosukeltha starring Vishnu
Manchu and Lavanya Tripathi in leads, has hit the screens on
October 17 and got good opening at the Box Office. Of late, an
interesting news is doing rounds in the film nagar. The buzz is
that director Veeru Potla initially wanted to do this
movie with Power Star Pawan Kalyan. He had even approached the
actor with the story, but the latter rejected it over some unknown
Veeru Potla, who started his career as a screenwriter, turned
director with Manchu Manoj's film Bindaas. After the
success of his second film Ragada, the director prepared
the script of Doosukeltha and first approached Pawan
Kalyan with the story. The No. 1 Telugu actor turned down his
offer, before letting him approach another hero, he reportedly
helped Veeru to add a few masala elements into the story.
It is not clear why Pawan Kalyan rejected Veeru Potla's offer, but
everyone must appreciate his courtesy. This is not the first time
that PK has helped other heroes indirectly in getting good scripts.
In fact, many of the Puri Jagannath and Raviteja combo movies were
actually set for the Power Star. But not many in the Telugu film
industry know about the reason behind his refusal.
