Filmmaker Nandini Reddy has revealed that she has put her Telugu project with actor Nitin Reddy on hold. The director, who will soon make her directorial debut in Bollywood, says that she had delay this movie due to the division of Andhra Pradesh that has caused tax issues.
In a statement to the media, Nandini Reddy said, "I was supposed
to start a project with Nithiin. Everything was finalized and we
were good to go but when the state (Andhra Pradesh) got bifurcated,
I had to put my plans on hold. We are going through a flux and I
want to wait for it to settle down."
Just a day before the release of Nitin's last movie Heart
Attack, Nandini Reddy had launched this movie at a grand event in
Hyderabad. The director added, "Had we started then, we would have
faced lot of tax issues following the state's bifurcation. I didn't
want to take any chances."
It was recently rumoured that Nandini Reddy will foray into Bollywood with the Hindi remake of her hit Telugu film Ala Modalaindi. When quizzed about it, the director admitted working on the remake, but declined to divulge the details. She said, "The Hindi remake is on and a leading banner is producing the film. But I can't share more details with regards to it."
