Akkineni Nagarjuna has revealed that filmmaker Mani Ratnam has cancelled his big-ticket project, which was to feature him alongside Tollywood Superstar Mahesh Babu. The actor has not divulged any reasons for it, but the reports suggest that both Telugu actors themselves have walked out of this film as they were not happy with the final script of the movie prepared by ace South Indian director.
Both Mahesh Babu and Akkineni Nagarjuna had reportedly given their oral consent to work together in Mani Ratnam's project earlier, but they had expressed "reservations" over the script. It is now reported that the filmmaker recently presented the final version of the script to Prince, who opted out of the film as he found some issues with his script. Later, Nagarjuna also walked out of the movie quoting the same reason.
However, Mahesh Babu and Mani Ratnam are yet to make an official announcement about the latest development with this project. Whereas Nagarjuna has confirmed the cancellation of the project. However, he did not tell anything about issues in the script. He has a different reason for shelving it. "Mani Ratnam has narrated a story to me and Mahesh Babu. But after some days, he called me and said that the project is cancelled," IndiaGlitz quotes the actor as saying.
