Director S J Suryah has been replaced with director Dolly, for Pawan Kalyan's next, which is to be produced by Sharath Marrar under North star Entertainments. If you can recall, Pawan earlier promised Dolly, to work with him for a film, as he was mightily impressed with the director's work during Gopala Gopala.
Apparently, Pawan has now got a chance to keep up his word. According to the press release from the film's unit, the replacement was made on a mutual consent.
"Director SJ Suryah recently received high acclaim for his performance as an actor in the Tamil film 'Iraivi'. Post release of Iraivi Suryah has been receiving many offers in Tamil and Telugu as an actor."
" Director Suryah approached Pawan Kalyan to try and adjust shooting dates for their forthcoming film under the Northstar Banner.", read a statement from Northstar Entertainments.
"But as this would only lead to delay of the Project it was mutually agreed that Suryah will step aside from the role of the Director. Suryah suggested various other options. Pawan Kalyan after discussion with Producer Sharrath Marar decided to ask Dolly to direct the project. Dolly had earlier directed Pawan Kalyan in Gopala Gopala and both share a very good rapport.", it further added.
Meanwhile, the pre-production work will continue under the supervision of Dolly and the film's shoot will likely begin by the last week of July.
