Reputed director T.S.Narabharana had made it clear that Superstar Rajinikanth is not apt for the role of Dalavayi Muddanna due to age factor in spite of his eagerness to enact the role. But, filmmaker and actor Prakash Raj doesn't agree with Narabharana.
Prakash feels that Rajini is fit enough to play the role of Dalavayi Muddanna. He said that the kind of aggression Rajini portrayed in Chandramukhi conveyed the message clear that he could do justice to Dalavayi Muddanna.
Prakash claimed that he was contacted in both the attempts to make film on Dalavayi Muddanna. He said that he turned down director Bhargava's offer to play Dalavayi Muddanna"s role, as director TS Nagabharana
